The PanAm Games present our community with a huge opportunity to improve our city and make progress on behalf of the families that live in this city.

The goal of the McGuinty government has always been to build a stadium for the City of Hamilton that will have a lasting benefit to the community.

As the MPPs for Hamilton Mountain and Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale, we want to be part a government that builds a great facility for the PanAm Games.

With a final decision days away, the federal government has made it clear to the province and the city that it will not fund a new stadium at the West Harbour.

The Ontario government believes, as the city’s staff report points out, that if the stadium is going to have a strong future, it must have an anchor tenant. We believe the best opportunity for success now is to build the stadium on the East Mountain, and we will encourage all parties involved to work towards that solution over the coming days.
