Familia are wanting to drop some $200M+++ in building a hotel, retail, commercial & residential, restaurants, bar, museum & gambling facility in downtown Hamilton.
Im likin that idea, and Im likin it alot. Some sort of tax structure from gambling profits could be used & funnelled towards Copps (similar to what Winnipeg did) with a major $150M+ upgrade, giving the NHL absolutely no excuse to continue postponing the inevitable.
Sounds pretty incredible doesn't it... Finally someone willing to invest and create jobs in Hamilton. Unfortunately we have a nimby attitude in this city, especially amongst the hipsters that live downtown that think the arts is the end all and be all of entertainment in the city.
Kil, We have no money for infrastructure here in Ontario even the mighty Mississauga is coming up short. I wish we could use the money on Copps but ain't gonna happen.
