Well said @Jason and @Simon. I think you proved yourself wrong though Simon with regards to public input. You have expressed some great insight and ideas both on here and through conversations we have had on FB. The recycle idea, whether it is viable or not I do not know, is a great one. It's the little things that could really make all the difference in the world. Who gave us the quote for building a new stadium? Could we get a cheaper quote? Probably and if 'we' had some input, we could ensure more accountability for the money being spent and to force them to look at ideas such as you have proposed.

I know if Ivor Wynne's ticket is punched, I would like all of us to have some major input with regards to the future of those lands and a stadium of some sort, I think should live there forever. Even if it's just a 5,000 seater for high school and other local sports - with a track around it. I know we have other such facilities (Mac and the International College just two examples), but sports has lived at 75 Balsam for a 80 years. I think there is something to that. Houses doesn't solve the problem with that area IMHO. We are looking at every possible way to create more of a tax base including ruining beautiful areas like Binbrook, when we should be looking at ways of curbing spending.
