Hamilton City Council will meet in a special Committee of the Whole session on Wednesday to receive an update from city staff about the financial viability of locating a 25,000 seat stadium south of Aberdeen and Longwood.
City Council voted, in committee, September 15 to purpose the current CP rail yard as a site for the Pan Am stadium while continuing to keep the West Harbour site on the table.
The big question that everyone will be looking for staff to answer - will the feds or province provide the additional funds necessary to reach the 25,000 seat threshold for the Tiger-Cats to become anchor tenants in the new stadium?
Mark Masters of the National Post reported last night that Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale Liberal MPP Ted McMeekin states the provincial government has not received a request for additional funding for the stadium.
The staff report is not yet filed with the City Clerks office. RTH will bring you the full report as soon as it is available.
