The Pan Am Stadium is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We chose to build it at the West Harbour. Now it's time to stand behind our choice. Show your support.

Province Backs City on Stadium Location

Posted July 27, 2010

Ted McMeekin, the Liberal MPP for Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Waterdown, just confirmed provincial support for the City of Hamilton's choice of a Pan Am stadium location.

In an email to RTH, McMeekin wrote, "The Province is committed to a Pan Am stadium for Hamilton and will support whatever decision the City Council, in its infinite wisdom, finally makes."

However, McMeekin reiterated, "a solid business plan needs to be developed that emphasizes a growth in tax base and not a growth in tax burden."

He noted that in his personal view, "the 'legacy' is the stadium itself," adding, "any stadium should be built with the entire community in mind and not any particular stakeholder in the community."

Why can't we have OHHA, OHRIA, track owners and race patnicipatrs all give funds for this tv ads? 1% from track owners and purse money would go a long way to help.
