Hamilton needs the Pan Am Games

Re: Just say no to Pan Am Games, Aug. 28 The News.

It is very disheartening to read about groups and individuals trying to submarine the Pan Am Games, which will benifit the majority of the public in Hamilton and the GTA. Life is built on dreams.

When one goes through downtown Hamilton, one sees dreams long past in the form of a run down city. But if one notices, the bar across from Copps Coliseum is remodelling, built on a new dream of the NHL coming to town.

One must think how a dream can reinvigorate the private sector to rise to the occasion that doesn’t cost you or me any money. But if people are not allowed to dream of a future with venues and facilities of which they can be proud, there is not much to offer from a group and/or political party.

Hamilton needs a new CFL stadium. It would bring revenue for more than just football.

Remember these people saying “no” are also saying “no” to the future for your children.

Let’s face it, everyone is really sick and tired of the past and failed infrastructure projects that don’t benefit people. These facilites will help the people direct their energies to physical health, which is the real reward.

The people of Hamilton want groups and individuals who can see the future. This event should be a no-brainer to the elected officals who are progressive. Now is the time to take stock of the groups and individuals who would keep us all in the stone age.
