I'm keeping an eye on the upcoming Hamilton council meetings and seeing if anything of interest pops up this week...
As for Mayor Bob, I recall Bratina saying the same thing, but I always assume he's off his meds and take everything he says with a grain of salt, even if it makes sense...
Bob's brutal....I wish Fred got re-elected, would have been much better (on all fronts). Councillor Whitehead deals with this stuff on a day-to-day basis....so hopefully something comes from him soon.
Like I said in my other post....MLSE will likely lean towards a Hamilton franchise instead of a Markham one (if they have to choose). So this pressure of a new arena in Markham might make MLSE roll-over and accept Hamilton and Markham will take Hamilton's place as the place MLSE blocks.
