I had to mention this because I think this is one of many political blunders and oversights by the Liberal Government in Ontario in regards to the upcoming Pan Am Games in July 2015 in Toronto and the GTA, if Toronto and the Argo’s need a new stadium why the heck didn’t the politicians include one built in Toronto that would hold 30,000 made for football and soccer similar to Hamilton’s new Tim Horton’s Field and be done with it?
The new stadium in Hamilton is estimated at $145 Million, it will be more once the final bills are in but still at that rate the Pan Am Committee and Liberals could have built a second similar stadium in Toronto for the Argo’s and for Soccer and split the soccer games between Hamilton & Toronto, both would win, now the Argo’s must look for a new home before their lease is up at Roger’s/Dodgers centre in 2017 and so on, and so on it never ends at the centre of the universe in the CFL.
Projected final cost by the Liberals was estimated at $2.5 Billion Yah Okay?? It’s guaranteed to cost more like $3 Billion plus, just the security for the games was estimated at $113 million it’s now ballooned to $236 million and counting the Liberals said it was a slight oversight by their government, Ummm sounds like Gas Plants, Orange Helicopter, E-Health and so on all slight oversights. So people and voters of Southern Ontario you got what you voted for a political party that cares less about you and more about them and just added tax dollars when the Argo need a new home to live in the CFL!!!
