Agreed - definitely a compromise!

I'm assuming they're looking at the "Careport" site? Would the CP rail lines still be needed? They terminate over the bridge no? I see opportunities for expansion there, with walkway connections to Westdale and the LRT (over the bridge, like the John St bridge @Rogers Centre). Only missing element is GO - is it possible to build a temporary station for the Pan Am events? A full service station doesn't seem warrantable since the actual line goes to the Hunter GO station (junction just before Aberdeen).

The MIP would still be able to function, and could spur some corporate sponsorship maybe? ...sports research incubator on site?

I can see this working, lets hope it does and the fighting stops! Then we can focus the velodrome on the WH, and consider the option of a more permanent facility? - just no useless amphitheater please!
