I remember oh it will be great it will be "State of the art" ...

Infrastructure Ontario should be saying sorry they were the top of the pyramid there..

Not to mention all the overseers that must have been there poking their noses around (if they weren't they dropped that ball too).

The contractor should have known better...but the whole gang of them are just useless

More problems for the city, another $500k in repairs and taxpayers to pay for it.

Jim you should read the article, :roll: the taxpayers are not paying for it, the money has already been withheld.

Coun. Lloyd Ferguson, who chaired the city’s Pan Am stadium committee, said he’s “comfortable” with the ongoing spending because the city withheld millions of dollars in payments to builder Ontario Sport Solutions as a result of the initial problems.

“We’ve held a lot of money back to ensure that stadium is completed and in an appropriate state of repair,” he said. “That’s worth doing and I’m comfortable we won’t be left on the hook for the cost.”

The city confirmed it had $6 million in withheld payments available in late 2015, but it’s not clear how much of that cash remains. City lawyer Bryan Boodhoo said Tuesday he can’t reveal any information about the holdback cash because of ongoing litigation.

Quoting who? I didn't write the article.

The city will spend up to $500,000 fixing persistent stadium leaks and sound system issues as legal wrangling continues over who is to blame for a laundry list of post-construction problems.

This is not a Hamilton problem, Winnipeg and Ottawa are going through the same issues.
