The Pan Am Stadium is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We chose to build it at the West Harbour. Now it's time to stand behind our choice. Show your support.

Fans give west harbour edge for stadium site

Posted July 13, 2010

In a Hamilton Spectator article published yesterday, reporter Andrew Baulcomb writes: "In a halftime survey of 50 people at Saturday's home opener against the Calgary Stampeders, it was the west harbour that came out on top - but only by a hair."

[F]ans such as Mike Morreale (no relation to the famous Ticat) still think the west harbour is the place to be.

"We would have to drive because we're out in a rural area, but anybody from any part of the city can get to the west harbour. Not everybody drives," Boyd said.
