Too bad the city spent so much time, money, and effort on studies and planning to help improve the future of its downtown, only to show the world that even council has no faith in their own work and vision for downtown, all to serve the purposes of one individual. How they can look at themselves (except for a handful of them) in the mirror and like what they see is astonishing. Maybe they should repay the city for all that wasted time and money, including their own salaries.

No a stadium alone will not revive the core. However, showing faith and vision and following through on that vision can spark interest and incentive among others to get on board. We know there were developers just waiting for that stadium/velodrome to be built downtown so they could take part in the revival. A vibrant downtown core attracts and keeps young, educated people with disposable incomes, which in turn attracts more businesses. It's a shame the city will have to wait longer for this to occur, while its young, educated graduates leave to find work and quality of life for themselves, and others think twice of moving to Hamilton.
