Quick note: I attended the April 27 meeting organized by Councillor Brian McHattie (Ward 1) regarding the Pan Am stadium. David Adames of the City presented first, followed by a representative of IBI Consulting who discussed parking.
Adames said they were "all in" on the West Harbour site after someone asked about the other sites.
Jill Stephen was there as well. I asked about the status of Hamilton's LRT plan in light of the delays in Metrolinx funding and the fact that the Ontario government has said that "projects connected with the Pan Am Games will go ahead".
She was not exactly clear but seemed to indicate that things are going forward with the B-Line. It appeared to be hopeful optimism and a wait-and-see approach.
Adames indicated that the GO Transit upgrades were more crucial to the games than the LRT - getting people and atheletes moved between Toronto and Hamilton.
Update: this blog entry originally stated that Brian McHattie is the councillor for Ward 10. The editor and his fat fingers are to blame for this; McHattie is actually the councillor for Ward 1. Thanks to highwater for pointing out the error.
