Stadium to Cost Burlington $0

The Spec has an article with the consortium behind the Aldershot stadium claiming there will be no cost to the city of Burlington. I'm a bit skeptical, mainly because every Hamilton site proposed ended up with significant extra costs. This does seems like a bit of a Hail Mary, because support in Burlington seemed to be trending against the stadium. It will be interesting to see the amount that the Cats end up contributing.

Apparently Hamilton can still try for a 6000 seat stadium at West Harbour, which would preclude government funding for an Aldershot site. The concern I have about this is what the Ticats would do if the city effectively kiboshed their stadium.
