[b]Province files notice of legal action over Tim Hortons Field stadium
It's a battle of potential lawsuits between the city, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, a construction consortium and the provincial agency that built the new Tim Hortons Field stadium.
Infrastructure Ontario (IO), the provincial agency that oversaw construction of the $145-million stadium, has filed a notice of action in Hamilton superior court for $50 million in damages.
The notice names Ontario Sports Solution (ONSS), the construction consortium that built the delayed stadium. It also names the Toronto 2015 Pan Am organizing committee, the City of Hamilton, York University, the City of Toronto and the Town of Milton.
The notice claims $50 million for breach of contract, negligence or negligent representation on the part of ONSS, including "failure to perform its obligations on time."
The notice specifically names Bouygues Construction and Obayashi Corporation.
This is the third notice of action filed over the stadium in recent weeks.
The city has filed its own notice, claiming about $35 million in damages. The claim cites breach of contract, negligence and misrepresentation when it came to the planning, procurement, design, construction, project management and other aspects of the stadium. Of that, $14 million are damage awards that would be passed on to the Ticats. The CFL team has also filed its own notice of action.
But the city is separately claiming $4.5 million in “delay damages? against the team, as well as breach of contract damages totaling $227,004 plus taxes.
The Ticats also filed a notice of action against the city and the other parties, but The Spectator was unable to obtain it Thursday night.[/b]
