it's about development of any nature that paves over greenspace. To be consistent with this line of thinking.

Not necessarily. All development is not equal. An ice cream stand is not the same as a stadium and 5,000 car parking lot.
From what I've read, the Conf Park plans add in a few retail stalls and more interactive kids park space. To be honest, I'd like to see more development of Conf Park, perhaps along the lines of although I think Cape Town's model is more suited to the West Harbour area. My point is, I'd love to see compatible development in the greenspace, but not a stadium. It's a stupid location for a stadium. Traffic nightmare and a horrible view of our east end, which the rest of country sees enough. Plus, stadiums are only heavily used 8 or 9 times a year.

The term 'regional solution' scares the crap out of me. Is he seriously considering contributing Hamilton money to this?

Honestly, there'd have to be a mutiny if this happens. While we're at it, why don't we toss $40 million to Winnipegs new CFL stadium. I'm sure they'd appreciate the free money as much as Burlington.
