Statement by Jamie Thompson
If the city wants to truly redevelop downtown the stadium needs to be built in the west harbour. People need to get over cars and look at other means of transportation. Stop urban sprawl and utilize the wonderful opportunity to continue to clean up our waterfront. We should be use the stadium for more functions than a costly football team and explore options to use it for concerts and festivals. Maybe it could house a restaurant and bar overlooking the harbour rather than a parking lot in a farmer's field. I support downtown local businesses not corporate development of valuable farm property. I support the west harbour stadium.
