I live in Edmonton and I believe it is worth noting that Commonwealth Stadium was built in a very similar type of area although a little less centrally located. Access is very good with only one LRT line, very limited parking and a major transit terminal. The LRT line used to be CN mainline and the area was a mix of warehouses factories and residential.

Another point that I think is important is I have noticed that the automobile culture that most of us grew up with is starting to fade. I cannot bribe my sixteen year old son enough to get him to get his licence; it's just not that important to him or his peers. In ten years time parking will not be near the issue that some people want to make it out to be today.

I was ecstatic when I heard Hamilton would finally be able to replace Ivor Wynn and in disbelief when I found out the owner of the Cats was balking at the location. Downtown looks to be an awesome place for the new stadium and I hope it happens.

Leave city planning to city planners!
