City Councillors voted 13-2 in today's committee of the whole meeting to direct staff to spend the next two weeks hammering out a proposal on putting the Pan Am stadium in the Aberdeen-Longwood area of McMaster Innovation Park. Only Councillors Brian McHattie (Ward 1) and Sam Merulla (Ward 4) voted against it.
A second motion by McHattie that no Future Fund money should go to the MIP site was defeated 13-2.
McHattie argued against threatening the innovation employment lands for a stadium, and Merulla has been steadfastly opposed to spending city money on a Pan Am stadium.
