I'm actually a little confused by McCallion's remarks, as well as the other two municipalities (Markham and Oshawa) withdrawing their interest - on the cusp of Hamilton finalizing ours. If the three municipalities weren't interested, why were they short-listed as competition? Sounds like a bit of sour grapes to me, from little ol' Hamilton winning a high-profile role in the Pan Am Games, instead of one of three Toronto bedroom communities. Perhaps if McCallion had any chance at all of landing a national sports team, she would feel differently - but her (and Markham's...and Oshawa's...) proximity to Toronto, I would think, ensures that that will never happen.
