I have been following this bid from the beginning and am totally outraged, though not surprised, at the NHL, MLSE and Gary Bettman. If I were Jim Balsillie, I think I would be thinking about what options I had open and I think I'd either wait until there are so many teams in bankruptcy in the U.S. with the league struggling because of it, or start a new league for us in Canada. This entire process has been a real eye opener as far as the NHL and their 'fairness' in dealing with potential owners and potential teams in Canada. We need to take back our game!!!
From my standpoint, Michael Jackson is right up there with Elvis, John and Jimi. This, for me, is like losing Elvis all over again...a very sad and shocking day! I hope that Michael will be remembered as a musical genius! He changed not only music, and the way it is presented [video], but dance and choreography! His effect on music and dance can be seen with all the young musical celebrities of today. I don't think we'll see his like anytime soon or perhaps ever. I only wish he had had a happier personal life. He surely deserved it!

This would be just fantastic for Hamilton! It's hard to be hopeful in light of the past 'deals' that never happened despite everyone's best efforts, but this time it seems closer and more feasible than ever. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed!! The designs are stunning!

When my ancestors arrived in Canada only two generations ago, they were thrilled to become Canadian citizens and eagerly embraced Canada, its culture AND its rules and laws. I was raised by both my parents and my grandparents to be a proud Canadian! It is outrageous to me to have Canadian laws, culture and religion come under attack on a daily basis from people wishing to turn this country into a country with no identity whatsoever! Growing up in Hamilton with a host of Hamiltonians from many countries, we eagerly embraced Hamilton and Canada in every way. In my opinion the Canadian immigration system is in dire need of a drastic overhaul; the sooner, the better!
