That is much better use of a million dollars than for street name anyways.
Good on the Burke’s. It’s amazing that the city can somehow screw up being handed a million dollars. I live in the Falls and I thought our council was screwed up.

Depends on if the something you are expecting has any real value. Personally, I think the municipal address for the Meridian Centre belongs on McGuire Street (wasn't it 35 McGuire at some point). The semi-circular "road" is nothing more than a driveway and naming it belongs in the "who cares" file. If someone wanted to give me a million dollars to name my driveway, I would promise perpetuity and happily run away with their cash. The City got greedy, hopeful that in another 20 years they could squeeze out another million dollars from somebody to rename the driveway. Seems to me the Burkes have a history of trying to uphold the deal they bargained for, not the one the other party wanted

Or, how about Brian Bellows?
He was a pretty good hockey player as well
I coached against him and his team when he was a midget aged players.
Oops, sort of gave away my age a little bit LOL

Regarding the street naming .... Stan Mikita Way has a nice ring.

Or how about ... CHEESEBURGER! Way.

DE104 this would be a nice tribute to a St. Catharines hockey legend…




Especially, since this banner hangs on the inside of the Meridian Centre….
