I disagree. I think Bratina got in partially because of anti-incumbent fervor surrounding the Ticat fiasco, and I think a lot of the voters supported Bratina's apparently waffly position on the stadium. Most people don't see the synergy of the West Harbour with the city's plans, since a lot of the good reasons to put it there aren't built yet.

Bratina was onside with the west harbour when the alternative was to put it way out in sprawl country. But he's always been pushing for the study of every possible location, including several "true downtown" spots that were on the top of his list. While it's waffly and wasteful to want every location studied, I think the public supports him on that.

His last push for the Confed. park smells of desperation. He doesn't want to be the mayor that lost us the Ti-Cats. He works in talk radio and so he deals with their echo-chamber.
