@Zephyr, I couldn't agree more that powers outside of our little hamlet were always in charge of this pre-determined endeavour - millionnaires, province, feds, developers. I'm sure my puny little mind couldn't even conceive of the back-scratching, palm-greasing, lunch lobbying backroom deals that go on in "big business", e.g. $200-million transactions. I do think the Pan Am Games are an amazing opportunity for Hamilton for myriad reasons (as probably discussed myriad times on RTH), and that we came away relatively unscathed - no urban sprawl dev't. I'm getting a little sick of the "making lemonade from lemons" analogy of late, but I think that's what we really have to do now. I know just in my life alone there's been some really crappy setbacks that have carved out new opportunities and experiences.
