I was there when the meeting was held, and not surprised they got 1,800. Almost every shop in town carried posters advertising it. Now normally it is the commercial sector that most favours stuff like stadiums as they get the tourism benefits. The fact so many local businesses think it costs way too much, let alone the residents, suggests it is seriously lacking in support.
The meeting called for Rodney Hide as Local Government Minister t scrutinise the decision making process around the stadium. It will be interesting to see what Rodney does.Tags: Douglas to Dancing, Dunedin
