Earl are you playing the "devil's advocate " again ? Hamilton oldtimers know that unions helped build this city and have made it great. Would you rather have Walmart workers building our new stadium ? :lol: :lol: :lol:
If you notice, the guy in the picture looks to be hold up a finger. It's either to let the rest of us know that the Tiger cats are number one or because he is so high off the ground, he's checking the wind direction....
....I'm going up there with a can of spray paint....It'll be a quick rub-out much like what will happen to the Cats when they come to town.... :lol: :lol: The guys up there are doing a great job and obviously have a great sense of humour.. :thup: AND aren't you guys happy we bought the steel from you instead of that outfit in Quebec :lol:
Yes, nothing wrong with Walmart - I know people that work very hard there and they give a lot better service than most stores!! I am sure that Walmart workers would build a great stadium at a much lower price and they would greet you at the entrance and show you to your seat.
Unions helped the city? really? they’ve cost us a lot more in higher wages.
Well said catfish. Some highly skilled Canadian steel workers are in the process of completing the new World Trade Centre in New York City. Unfortunately, high winds in Winnipeg during the winter have delayed the stadium completion. Some "glass half empty people" like to play the blame game when it comes to unionized workers. I doubt that you would see too many of the naysayers at memorial services for workers who died on the job. :roll:
Guess nobody noticed the lack of concrete....but plenty of metal beams/supports. Say hello to the lastest BMO structure. You can bet we'll be getting the same thing for $200 million. Ivor Wynne Stadium's current concrete composite/base will last another 40 years according to the City comissioned 2007 Engineers' report. Guess McQuinty and Bob didn't get that memo. Oh well, what's another couple hundred million dollars added to the debt. It's not like they wil be affected directly.
