We really do need a third stadium in the city that can hold anywhere from 15,000-30,000 people.
Yes, the Whitecaps Stadium in its current iteration is all but dead, however Kerfoot has indicated he is still interested in building the stadium. Like I said before he is looking at Vancouver proper, not Surrey or Burnaby, and I would assume the stadium is still intended to be close to downtown. One possible location discussed was somewhere in the False Creek flats area, although it would clearly have significant re-zoning hurdles to get through.
There is still a remote possibility of a deal being worked out with the Port, although at this point the two parties are nowhere close to an agreement.
