I've yet to see anything that would suggest the proposed Seniors Centre being planned for the IWS site. Everything publically released (not much) has stated Scott Park. So your argument around that refurbing IWS has no impact on the proposed centre.

"The 2010-2019 capital budget forecast included submission for approval in principle of a Scott Park Arena Refurbishing/New Senior Centre. The project is described as a large centre similar to Sackville to serve the seniors in Lower Hamilton and to refurbish Scott Park Arena. The senior centre will include a gymnasium, activity and program rooms. The project as submitted totals a projected $12 million, $1.2 million in 2011 for design costs, and a further $10.8 million in 2012 to support construction. As the budgeted discretionary capital forecast, as presented on page 4 of this report, identifies that the total forecast Recreation allocation represents an average of $9 million annually, there is limited capacity to allocate all funding in 2012 to this one project."
