"Public money is a scare resource that should only be used with a promise of a return -- in this case, there is a real probability of private investment to follow public dollars at the WH. Build a legacy for high-performance and amateur sport and make the WH something to be proud of. The city cannot afford to invest our Future Fund in subsidizing a football team. Besides the fact that there is a real probability that the PanAm committee will not even accept an IWS reno as an acceptable legacy."

Excellent points Zephyr! The only way we are going to get a true sense of what "deal" is the best for Hamilton is to have a direct WH and IW comparison with all the numbers included - I've emailed my councillor to ask that this happen and I encourage you to do the same!
