In an email response to a constituent, Ward 2 councillor Bob Bratina just acknowledged that he may now be willing to support the West Harbour for a Pan Am stadium. He wrote:
The original plan called for a large new commercial area to be built around the stadium north of Barton, west of Bay. This would have harmed, not helped the rejuvenation of our Downtown core.
We've made some revisions to the plan which you will see in the next few days that would bring significant new development in the core which would support the Barton Tiffany stadium location.
I'm confident now that we can support the West harbour site if the revised plan is accepted.
This new development represents a change of mind for Bratina, who formerly opposed the West Harbour location as it was originally envisioned.
