  1. I like the idea of TFC building a training facility — most other MLS teams have one, and more green soccer fields (and even the odd bubble) are never bad for the city as far as infrastructure goes, even private infrastructure. But can someone please clarify what land this will sit on at Downsview? Is this part of the area already set aside for development, or is this essentially a piece of the (now abandoned?) Tree City that will be taken over by the fields? Where on this map will TFC’s fields go?
