According to the Spectator today, it seems like some local councillors are starting to get nervous that perhaps they were wrong in voting for the West Harbour site in the first place and may be ready to vote differently now.
I've been suggesting for a while now that Council should table a motion for an emergency re-vote on this urgent issue before it's too late and the Stadium gets moved to another municipality as MPP Ted McMeekin is now warning about.
It's abundantly clear that the Tiger-Cats have made their final decision and are not posturing or playing games here. They will not be putting a nickel into a West Harbour stadium and their sponsors and partners quite likely won't either.......
Primus, for instance, already said -no- a while back.
The previous vote was 10-5 with one councillor absent (David Mitchell
Sounds like it has already changed to (at least).... 8-7 (and there;s quite likely more who are changing their minds now.
So, my question is this..........Monday night, council will be all together, so in the interest of Hamilton and the future of the Pan Am Games, should a motion be tabled for an emergency re-vote? ........I believe so as the have to correct their previous ill-conceived decision.
