Andrea, no where in my comments did I say that we should not promote our other qualities as a city. In fact, I would LOVE if all Canadians knew about our art crawl, our RBG, Dundurn Castle and our other fine museums, our waterfalls, and our vast greenspace. And with enough promotion, we will get there. But why are you (and others) so intent on just doing away with one quality of the city that bring joy (and stress on gamedays) to thousands?

And yes, I made some generalizations, but that's only from experience. The only people I come across that support WH are people who live, or have a business, downtown. NONE of them have been to a football game. Likewise, folks from the 'burbs who are football fans, support a Confederation Park/East Mountain site. And yes, some of them, have been to an art gallery, myself included. I have even enjoyed any trip I have taken to our fine Art Gallery. I'm just generalizing, based on experience, that's all. But you may have totally different experiences.

One question: If people on this site are so pro-downtown and believe the Ticats aren't important, why did you want the 'unimportant' Ticats to play at WH and create economic spinoff downtown?
