In addition to the organizing of opposition to the East Mountain site in favour of the West Harbour, there is shocking news that East Mountain will require expensive roadwork and the Ti-Cats really aren’t worth that much to Hamilton.
Overlooked is the fact that the West Harbour proposal’s flaw is lack of access. Any alternative site is going to have costs for roadway work to solve that issue. As for studies that belittle the economic contribution of the Tiger-Cats and state companies don’t relocate because of sports teams are missing half of the equation. People look at activities available in a city in their decision to live there and the loss of activities can result in the loss of people and an increased difficulty of attracting new residents.
