To all those people still saying Council made a mistake not voting for the East Mountain, take note: Pan Am HostCo just denied Burlington's case for a soccer field at Kerns Road and Dundas Street because it was too far from a GO Train station.
Mayor Cam Jackson confirmed the pull-out yesterday and advised Burlington will instead be designated strictly as a soccer training site for the 2015 event. The lack of GO Train access to the northwest park was cited as a reason for the decision.
Jackson also pointed out that HostCo is still shuffling events around, and Burlington still might end up gaining a different event or facility.
