Building on a mistake is no way to correct them and learn from them.
Aside from that argument, the other main point in favour of Kanata I can see is that Lansdowne is on a “small-bore” local road network. As former attendees of Rough Rider and Renegades games can attest (and debated ad nauseam), transport and traffic was never a big issue at Lansdowne when the CFL was there. Probably 90% of soccer stadiums in Europe (with seating capacities similar to Lansdowne) are located precisely in urban neighbourhoods just like the Glebe, as are the most desirable baseball stadiums in the U.S. like Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.
