Statement by Ryan Danks
The stadium should be a legacy for the next century, not a monument to failed urban design from the previous one.
Locating the stadium in an suburban area, far removed from public transit and the heart of our city sends the worst possible message to other developers. It tells them that even City Council has given up on downtown.
If our tax dollars are paying the bulk of the costs then it should be in a location that maximizes the benefits to the city, not those of a single tenant.
The West Harbour site could be a catalyst for the renaissance of our downtown, but East Mountain site would be the final nail in it's coffin
