Statement by Rosemary Paventi-=Hill
I have lived in Hamilton my entire life (48 years). I love this city and strongly believe the stadium should and MUST belocated at the West Harbor!!! Decisions were made months ago by the Pan Am Committee and the City of Hamilton, money was spent on consultants, testing of the site etc...IT WAS DECIDED!!!!!
The Tiger Cats will not have my support and I will voice my opinion loud and clear this CANNOT happen. Our downtown is alive with Art and Culture and it desires to keep the
positive energy that it has been experiencing the last 5 years, and for many many more decades.
Politics and business people that have there own agenda involving only their personnal gain our behind the East Mountain, Bob Young has been quoted as saying buying the Tiger Cats has been the worst business decision he has ever made. What will stop him from pulling out of the East Location after it's built?
The only people who will benefit from the East Mountain stadium are people with a lot of money who can afford the cars and gas, the increased ticket prices, parking fees, overpriced food/beverages and may not consider the polluation and enviromental impact....you need a car to get there period.
Lets make the right choice for ALL the Hamilton citizens.
