There are two Toronto articles today on the status of the 2015 Pan Am Games:

From the Globe and Mail website: "McGuinty and Hudak feud over 2015 Pan Am Games".

In this article, Tim Hudak is alleging (and Dalton McGuinty is denying) delays, cost overruns and a lack of transparency at the Toronto 2015 level.

And by Dave Perkins from the Toronto Star: "Pan Am games team stumbles out of the gate".

"Qualified people have left the organization, including Bill Senn, an experienced venue developer. Only last week a vital position, that of project coordinator for venue development, was posted on an Internet job site.

There is a disconnect, presided over by CEO Ian Troop, between those who ran the successful bid for the Pan Ams and those in charge of the games themselves, leaving senior management short of experience in dealing with sports federations, which are key to organizing a multi-sport games."

Another article titled "McGuinty denies Tory charge that Pan Am Games are unravelling" by Allison Jones has been posted on thespec.com tonight:
