"Why is it okay for your church to locate in a location that is not downtown, not accessable by Go transit, and has plenty of parking but it is not okay for Bob Young???"

Capitalist - I'm sure Jason can speak for himself but perhaps I can help soothe your apparent irritation at today's turn of events.

How about, because it's one of thousands of churches, scattered all over the city, built to benefit a relatively isolated, small group of people who can choose to go to other churches AND it's privately owned and paid for by its attendees.

A stadium in Hamilton, on the other hand, is a publicly-owned solitary venue, built by everyone, owned by everyone, to benefit everyone, NOT NEARLY paid for by its attendees and subsidized to the tune of millions of taxpayers' dollars every year.

The only similarity between a church and the stadium that Bob Young wanted was that neither of them pay property taxes.

Did this help?
