Just for your information I know many decent people in HRM and in this province and friends that have left HRM and the province, that have said and made the same exact comments and who agree with me totally on my views. I also know a lot people like myself because of what I outlined in my last post that are leaving HRM and the province permanently and there will be many more to follow.
This reminds me of a 4 year old having a tantrum. None of us in the forum are saying that a stadium isn't something we should build - it's a matter of getting the right stadium, in the right place and using it to facilitate something great. Sorry if that's not acceptable to you - but that's life and there are lots of things the City has to pay for and not everything can be accommodated.
Waye is absolutely right - there is a track record of big/great events on the peninsula and ultimately when a decision is made on where this goes - some people aren't going to be happy about it. But that's Council's role - to make that decision. Not us, not you, not anyone else in the city.
