Come Here Pussy Cat

The fate of the Tiger Cats in Hamilton has not yet been determined, and yet it seems like Mayor Gordon Krantz of Milton is anxious to lure the Cats over there. 


Mike Cluett, a ward 6 candidate and Ticat fan, said Mayor Gordon Krantz contacted the football club.  As reported in The Spec, (see full article here) Cluett said he wants the team to stay in Hamilton but if the Cats and city can’t come to terms on a stadium, Milton has the highway access and parking opportunity the football club says it needs for long-term surivival.

He indicated an industrial site on Hyw. 401, that is 10 minutes from Hyw. 407, 20 minutes from the Queen Elizabeth Way and accessible for fans from all directions.He couldn’t say how a $150-million stadium would be funded.

“We don’t want to look like we’re poaching, but we’re here if it can’t work out there.”

 Is he poaching? Is this offer in bad taste, or is it just a good business move for Milton? Should be be worried?
