@view from the west: There is no decent offer on the table. Nothing that wouldn't cost us, as a city, tens of millions at least. This kind of federal/provincial money is offered all the time - look at the RHVP, Light rail, Aerotropolis, Canmet at the Innovation park, etc.

It's been how many years since we built the last big stadium in this town? Mac Just built one. I haven't been following the talk of a new one for Redeemer. Before this it was the NHL, Commonwealth Games, Toronto Olympics bid, Bike Races, Grey Cup etc... And it certainly wasn't 80 years ago that Pan-Am and NHL talks got Copps built.

This is far from a once-in a lifetime offer. And even if it was, it would still be dubious.
