Council has reaffirmed its choice for a Pan Am stadium location by a margin of 10-6.
Ten councillors voted in favour of the West Harbour at this morning's meeting - two fewer than during Tuesday's vote. Councillors Tom Jackson and Terry Whitehead switched their position, while Brad Clark, Sam Merulla, Dave Mitchell, and Margaret McCarthy maintained their opposition for the site.
The reason for the reversal was mainly due to the concern of some councillors about the lack of participation of the Tiger-Cats. Conversely, others made it clear that the criteria for a "legacy use" is not only defined as a professional football team and that community use is how we should define the business case moving forward.
