In a Toronto Sun article published yesterday on a campaign in Oshawa by Councillor Robert Lutczyk to woo the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Oshawa Mayor John Gray is quoted throwing cold water on the proposal.
This is an election year and some councillors just want to make headline, said Oshawa Mayor John Gray.
"The team is trying to shakedown Hamilton - threatening to move the team - to get the location that it wants. It is a dangerous move to try and poach teams from other cities. If we did, what type of shakedown would they give us in 10 years," Gray said.
"Even if the Pan Am people had some money for the stadium, the operating costs would be a real challenge."
