@HamiltonFan -- I agree with you that council has a responsibility to only vote on an option if they are provided adequate information -- this is the gist of my argument. I am not privy to any IWS information but have enough business experience to know that there is not enough time to do a proper analysis on the IWS site. City Manager Chris Murray as much as admitted this and only committed for city staff to do the best they could in the time remaining to them. I also think the city should be extremely careful before entering into any agreement with the Ti-Cats at this point. These are the people who said any site would work...IWS would not work....WH would not work....Aldershot could be done with $0 in commitment from Burlington... and finally IWS will work. This is not business negotiation, it is foolishness from a team that thought they were in the driver's seat, until they realized they weren't and grew increasingly desperate. Frankly, the whole deal is an insult to the collective intelligence of this city.
