Statement by Ann Clark
I have lived and worked in the Hamilton area for over 45 years. I love this city and strongly believe the stadium should and MUST be located at the West Harbour!!! The potential is unbelievable.
This is what the downtown area needs. Our downtown is alive with Arts and Culture and we need to keep the positive energy that it has been experiencing over the last 5 years, and for the future.
Bob Young has been quoted as saying buying the Tiger Cats has been the worst business decision he has ever made. Don't let this guy bully us. Please tell me what the East Mountain location is going to do to help him? (What will stop him from pulling out of the East Location after it's built?) This will not help the team to win a game. The Tiger Cats will not have my support.
The only people who will benefit from the East Mountain stadium are people that can afford the cars and gas, the increased ticket prices, parking fees, overpriced food/beverages and may not consider the pollution and environmental impact....you need a car to get there period.
Let us make the right choice for ALL the Hamilton citizens.
