Climate change and Air quality discussion

Something in the Air? Thursday January 27, 7 p.m. Strathcona Elementary School 10 Lamoreaux St. (corner of Strathcona N. And Lamoreaux) Air pollution and climate change are two global challenges that have impacts right here in Strathcona. Brian Montgomery from the City of Hamilton will heat things up with a discussion of the the city’s greenhouse gas inventory (available at www.hamilton.ca/climatechange) and will gather our ideas to help Strathcona–and the entire city–take action. Jordan Fysh from Green Venture will take on the topic of air pollution–what’s in the air we’re breathing, what it means to our families and community, and what the city is doing about it, including a mobile air monitoring program that will be measuring air quality in our ‘hood. “The SCC is not associated, related or affiliated in any way whatsoever with Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board or any of its schools, staff, trustees or...

A Pan Am Games Stadium at the West Harbour is still Hamilton’s to choose – or Hamilton’s to lose. We need your help to make it a reality. You’ve heard about the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ latest play: they want to move the stadium to Burlington, and it won’t cost Burlington a dime. The Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games Corporation has said that there is no need for Hamilton to build a massive stadium to participate in the Games. A 6,000 seat community stadium will do nicely. Ian Troop, CEO of Toronto 2015, said this: “If Hamilton wanted to go with a 5,500-6,500 seat stadium, we would have gone with that.” The idea of building the Hamilton Tiger-Cats a stadium was actually the City’s idea. After the Ticats’ last-minute rejection of the City’s chosen West Harbour site, the City has studied (at great expense) a slew of other sites to try to make them happy. Every one has been too expensive, and every one has failed to gain community support. The only site that definitely works is the West Harbour. The Ticats say they won’t play there. That’s fine, because from Toronto 2015’s perspective, we don’t actually need them to create a lasting legacy for the city. All we have to do is say “yes” to building a scalable 6,000 seat community stadium at the West Harbour. Seriously – all Council needs to do is give the go-ahead, and the West Harbour stadium location is a go. That’s because: Toronto 2015 says a small community stadium is viable and meets their requirements. A smaller stadium will be tens of millions cheaper,...
