"On Friday morning the province received specific information that the federal government would not fund a stadium at West Harbour. This confirmed information we had heard the previous day.

On Friday, this information came through Ian Troop, CEO of Toronto 2015.

We felt obliged to inform our partners at the city. Our concern was that this development, coming so late in the process, could jeopardize the chances for the city to realize its goal of having a stadium. And all along, as Hamilton MPPs, our goal has been to bring a stadium to Hamilton that will provide a lasting benefit to our community.

With the information from Mr. Troop, on Friday we indicated our belief that, in the circumstances, the East Mountain site represented the best hope for achieving this goal.

We are reassured to know that the federal government has now clarified that its funding is not contingent on any location.

This has been our position all along and we are glad to reaffirm it."
