For me, it's getting extremely frustrating to hear over and over again from people that don't see the benefit of a 5-6,000 seat stadium for a City of over 500,000 people. Last night during the Council meeting it was mentioned that the number of community bookings currenlty at Ivor Wynne (non Ticat use) was close to 250. Of those 250 bookings, I would hazard a guess that most would not draw more than 5,000 people. Additionally, during football season the Ticats have restrictions on when the stadium can be accessed (understandably) and to the best of my understanding this is 2 days before and 2 days after; severely limiting community use. There doesn't need to be a major tenant - community athletic associations and high school should be sufficient to justify the building of such a facility.
