Occupancy permit - no decision 'til late week

CBC is reporting that there will be no decision made about the partial occupancy permit until late in the week.

It seems that we all get to wait until the 11th hour to plan for our long weekends. Thanks ONSS! So appreciated...

How can they wait so long? This is the crap that is making me so mad, just come out and say the stadium won't be ready so everyone can get on with their lives. Sick of the boy who cried wolf scenario.

8) If the TiCats and the CFL are smart, they will go ahead and make plans now to play the game at Rogers Centre on
  Tuesday, as the rumours are suggesting. 

   Enough of this nonsence, about THF, may or may not be ready !!   <!-- s:roll: -->:roll:<!-- s:roll: -->

    Enough is enough !!

Didn’t they say a decision wouldnt be made until last minute two weeks ago ? This isnt news.

Nope. Initially the word was "expect a decision on Monday". Now it's expect it later in the week.

Did someone not state it could be as late as the 28-29th ?

Not that I saw, but goodness knows that I'm no authority on all news outlets and what they've produced. Much as other fans have, I'm simply compiling information and posting it. I think we're all eager to figure out whether or not there's a party to be had on Monday or if we should just all hang out at the cottage for an extra day.

From last Monday: "Public works manager Gerry Davis said the city's building department could issue a permit for oocupancy or partial occupancy as late as Aug. 28 "

So basically if we get to Friday and there's no permit, there's no game. Got it. Thanks, dork.

The team has always said they need five days to get ready after the permit is issued. Thursday the 28th is the day.
