Both the Jobs Prosperity Collective (JPC) and McMaster Students Union (MSU) have publicly announced support for the West Harbour location for the Pan Am Games Stadium.
From the JPC letter:
"The Jobs Prosperity Collaborative (“JPC”) is a community group of leaders who are passionately committed to promoting our prosperity through job creation and retention. The JPC is on record as supporting the west harbor site for the Pan Am Stadium. Our support was premised on our belief that investing in this site aligns well with a broader strategy for community development and prosperity."

From the MSU letter:
"The MSU believes that the proposed East Mountain site is counter-productive from an environmental, social and economic point of view. An East Mountain site would only work to further encourage urban sprawl in a city that desperately needs to revitalize its core."
