Thank you for broadening your scope in editorializing in the way you have in this article. I've been saying here, in the Comments sections of numerous posts, as well as on my own blog that there is a much, much bigger lesson to be learned, well beyond whether we 'get 'er done' regarding the PanAm Games stadium site selection process. It has to do with the clearly flawed mechanisms in place to deal with substantive issues. (I have been consistently 'downvoted' on RTH when I've pointed this out, which doesn't disappoint personally so much as reinforces just how myopic some readers can be.)

So once again, I'm going to hope out loud that whatever the outcome of if and where our stadium will be built/rebuilt, we use this opportunity to take a good look at how things went so badly, and why we ended up here, in your own words, where 'Rushed planning, confused priorities conspire to mire stadium process in confusion and uncertainty.'

The city of Hamilton, its residents, everyone involved deserves better. The sad thing is that I believe our Councillors have the abilities to do better. They just haven't proven it yet.
