Hamilton politicians voted 10-to-6 in favour of a motion tabled by Ancaster Councillor Lloyd Ferguson.

The motion forwards a renovated Ivor Wynne Stadium to Pan Am Game's officials, as the city's preferred stadium option.

The option calls for a 15 thousand seat re-build of Ivor Wynne. combined with renovations to the "southside stands" that would meet what are called "Base CFL" and/or "Base Tiger Cat" needs.

Monday's decision also officially takes the west harbour off the table as a potential stadium site.

A lawsuit is now being considered by several law agencies against the city of Hamilton for the "forceful and unlawful" way they went about securing properties at West Harbour, expropriations which "had no backing or merit" and resulted in a overrule when challenged in expropriation court. An expropriation order is rarely overturned, a result that may support further legal action against the city.
