Love the video. Is that a prison featured at the beginning? 🤣

Yeah, the old jail.  Spelled Gaol though. 

It's actually the site of the last public execution in Canada.

Where are you imagining the stadium. At the Agricultural Park where the horse racing track used to be?

One of the posts on Twitter seemed to indication one of his suggestions was replacing the courthouse in the center of town with a stadium.

Look at the pic on his twitter. Replacing town hall in the middle of town.

I'm originally from Goderich, that's not town hall, that's the county courthouse.  I think the courthouse and/or the entire downtown Square has historical designation which would make building anything like a stadium difficult.

 

I've attached a photo of the actual towh hall.  Which, like much of the downtown area, has a historical designation.

Jokes on you Trevor, they're going to bulldoze most of the town and build a 100,000 seat Azteca-like stadium. Tigres de Goderich, 5-time defending CPL Champs will attract ManU fanboy type fans from all over North America.

My brother-in-law is from Goderich. Says they have the best donuts in the country. Can it be a donut shaped stadium at least - The Big Dough perhaps?

I don't know about donuts, but the bakery, actually just a few doors up from the town hall I posted a picture of, has amazing cookies.

When downtown Goderich was smashed by a tornado in 2011, I remember that one of the reporters from Winnipeg was a Goderich native and mentioned he had been all across Canada and Goderich still had the best cookies.  He preferred the lemon cookies, I'm a chocolate chip man myself.

I don't believe I've had cookies from Goderich before. They may very well be the best, but I just can't trust the opinion of someone who says lemon cookies are their favourite.

Pretty much any cookie that doesn't have raisins in it is a good cookie.

I absolutely hate raisins! Why would anyone ruin a perfectly good pastry with a filthy raisin?!

Are cookies pastry? I always kinda kept them in their own category...

Touché... they may be their own category indeed. Nevertheless, they shouldn’t be sullied by the putrifying presence of raisins.

Sorry to drag this thread off topic, but after moving to Chatham I found that they don't put chocolate chunks in their banana bread. Which is normal, chocolate or no chocolate? Discuss...

Normal doesn't matter, banana bread is delicious either way.
