I am not impressed with this debacle. Starting with the way it was handled - meddling behind the scenes and undermining our democracy, and following through to a conclusion which will see 150 million dollars - over 99% of which is public money - being used to prop up a failing private sports franchise.

This is unacceptable.

Hamilton is suffocating under public service costs downloaded to us.

Hamilton is drowning in toxic brownfields that all levels of government continue to neglect to find funding to clean up nor to hold the original polluters responsible.

Hamilton is looking at a 130 million dollar LRT project which will likely fail due to lack of political will to find funding, meanwhile of ALL of the uses of a hundred million, this should be at the top of the list.

We work too hard in this city to see our municipal, provincial and federal taxes be thrown at a bunch of elite "businessmen" to play their games with.

This is irresponsible spending. And with tax time right around the corner.


How does this benefit the average taxpaying Hamiltonian?

200 million dollars in hundred dollar bills
