Join us as we fight to bring the proposed Pan-Am Stadium to the West Harbour of DOWNTOWN Hamilton.
Rally begins at 3:30 on Tiger Cats Gameday, Saturday August 7th.
Special Guest Speakers including:
Mayor Fred Eisenberger
Councillor Bob Bratina
This is the best chance our generation is going to have to see the long neglected Waterfront, a hidden jewel of our city, finally be developed, and turned into a beautiful destination we can ALL enjoy !
The impact on the Waterfront, and the downtown, will be positive from both and economic, and quality of life perspective. The Waterfront site has the chance to be turned into one of the nicest civic waterfronts in North America, but it needs a Massive development plan, spurned on by a catalyst like the stadium project.
Currently a toxic mess left over from delapitated former industry has the waterfont area in a sad, even dangerous state. The waterfront will sit in this state for at least another generation without the MILLIONS of dollars needed to clean it up. Those millions should come from a PUBLICLY funded project like this.
Picture going to a Cats game, or perhaps an MLS game or even a festival at a stadium where you can enjoy the waterfront atmosphere before during and after the event! Let's draw people down to our waterfront, and our downtown.
If we drop the ball here, and don't seize this great opportunity, generations of Hamiltonians will lose out. A healthy downtown, with an exciting waterfront accessible for everyone, is a recipe for Civic prosperity. Ask the people of Pittsburgh (a former steeltown like Hamilton) how proud they are of their waterfront (and waterfront Stadium).
STAND UP HAMILTON... FIGHT FOR THE WEST HARBOUR LOCATION!!
SEE YOU AUGUST 7th in HESS VILLAGE!!!!!
