Re: PanAm stadium issue in Hamilton I am writing this letter to request that no additional funding be committed by the Province of Ontario or by the Federal Government to bridge the forecasted funding gap to renovate Ivor Wynne Stadium. Since I spent the first 23 years of my life living 2 blocks away from IWS I can assure you rebuilding the stadium at this location is a complete waste of money and resources. As you are aware Canadians and Hamiltonians are experiencing very difficult economic conditions. The reality is that we have no more money to give you to spend. The Province, Feds, and City of Hamilton have already committed about $115M to this stadium. It is my opinion that any funding gap needs to be made up by the CFL / Hamilton Tiger Cats. I am also very disturbed by the tactics that the Hamilton Tiger Cats have been using to leverage tax payers money to benefit their business. Based on the comments that I have seen from the numerous articles that have been written about this issue my opinion represents the majority. With election(s) looming it is safe to say that I will be taking into account the outcome of this issue when I cast my vote. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and I hope you will take my view into consideration when making a final decision. Best Regards, Ward 14 Hamilton
