CP Stadium Dead, Confederation Park Dead

Well the potential CP rail site died from being too expensive and now Confederation Park is pretty much dead as a potential stadium location after Bob Bratina's motion got stomped. As an aside, people complained about Fred Eisenberger being a weak mayor, but Bob might end up even weaker.

Here's the Spec story and here's the National Post story,, complete with Ticat president Scott Mitchell comments.

Personally as a season ticket holder living downtown, Confederation Park has always been my least favourite site. I'm still a fan of Ivor Wynne although obviously the Cats are not. Ivor Wynne has character, whereas an new stadium that will be built today will probably end up a soulless steel bandbox like BMO. Sure people might be excited for a couple of seasons, but then what?
