Agreed. Although I think that it's important to consider the social implications, for me, the economic argument is the most important one. It will not make us money and we cannot afford another huge money draining sinkhole here.

I oppose the Aerotroplis and the stadium for the exact same reason.

And my support for smaller scale livability initiatives is all to the same end: economic sustainability.

We need to create an environment that attracts residents, particularly younger people, and we need to do so in dense neighbourhoods which are more efficient (this means mostly lower Hamilton). Businesses will follow them, both as employers and as destinations for their shopping dollars. This is the only way we will survive financially.

Begging for scraps from the OLG is not a sustainable financial plan.
