Danial Nolan of the Hamilton Spectator (july 30, 2010)wrote:

`The head of the 2015 Pan Am Games organizing committee says the city was aware weeks ago it was going to lose track and field at its proposed stadium and was on board with the idea.

"They knew we were planning it," said CEO Ian Troop.

The 15,000-seat stadium can still be built, but would host 30-35 soccer games. He said provincial and federal funding is not in jeopardy and the only loss would be about $3 million for building the track and field.'

MPP Sophia Aggelonitis might just have unwittingly been pulled into the mess regardless of her personal view but if she wants to keep her job she had better tow the party line, deliver the news and keep a stiff upperlip. She is just the messanger. Boss Dalton made her do it. "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."

Provincial and Federal funding being pulled in the last hour? Bad faith and politics aside, I wonder if the lawyers are lining up.

This is just wrong and getting worse, but will make for a great book.
