Hammer, interesting to speak of prestige being added to McMaster. I remember when the new cancer centre was built for around some $45 million and shortly thereafter the "experts" wanted to move the cancer centre facilities down to McMaster. And close the only emergency on the mountain at Henderson, now Juravinski Hospital. The community reacted, Dr. Marie Bountrogianni fought hard and won. Building a new cancer centre with expensive bunkers etc. and then transferring that to McMaster at a huge cost just didn't make sense to a lot of people, and closing the emergency up on the mountain.

I respect McMaster and they add much to our city but not everything needs to be located right there. The physicians and other selected health care personnel receive faculty appointments anyways. There were other agendas going on with this situation at the time.

Now perhaps the best location is McMaster for the velodrome, I don't know. But it shouldn't go just to McMaster to add to their prestige on site there out of default.
