Re: “Letters to the editor, April 20, 2017

At the risk of stating the obvious regarding the Wanderers Grounds stadium proposal:

Most hospital appointments are in the M-F 7am-3pm window, and there is just never going to be a Halifax FC game at those times, so parking is manifestly a non-issue.

The idea that Grounds events have never charged admission is of course completely ahistorical. Many who grew up here in the '70s and '80s as I did (not to mention many decades earlier) will have fond memories of going to games at the grounds and paying their way in. Staging ticketed events at the Grounds is a tradition that goes back to the 1880s as anyone who knows their Halifax history will tell you.

Unfortunately if the Grounds are a "cherished" space that has not manifested in upkeep of the Grounds. Many will recall that two years ago an international rugby match had to be relocated from there due to the sad condition of the field. The SEA proposal offers a viable and indeed exciting way to ensure that the space is adequate to host first-rate sports events.
