K just saying but.. the weather in winnipeg wasnt that bad, it had nothing to do with the weather, this is what happens when you live outside winnipeg and believe everything you hear as fact... nothing to with weather. turns out the steel was the major delay, it wasnt ready in time. also, like others have said, IGF is way more complex, the arches and all that.. hamilton doesnt have that. hamilton is basically building a new version of Ivor Wynne, nothing fancy like winnipeg did.
honestly tho, i never expected IGF to be done in a year and those who did were kidding themselves, Hamilton? im not sure, looking at the design, its about as basic as it gets.. do i think it will be done in a year? probably not tho because delays happen and honestly, it takes a year sometimes to build and finish a house, sometimes more, a football stadium is 10000 x biggger, so it should take a bit longer. It might get done tho because its really about as basic as it gets.
also i think people who dont live in winnipeg tend to over exagerate the weather here, its not terrible.. honestly, i saw a comment saying hamilton has milder winters? maybe, but... really we all get pretty cold days in winter.. toronto was colder at times, so was hamilton... does winnipeg get cold winters? sure we do but really... we rarely get -30 days in the winter, outside of a week or 2 in feb.. the major factor with the winter temps in winnipeg is the wind, when its not windy.. its very similar to most of what canada gets. take away the wind, its not that bad.
We have been well over plus 40 with the humidex the last 2 3 weeks now also so this whole 'winterpeg' thing needs to die. we are pretty much the same as everywhere else in western canada and even parts of ontario, at times, even warmer.
