So the province has coughed up an extra $22.5 million for the Ivor Wynne rebuilding, according to this National Post article by Mark Masters. With Hamilton Mountain being a critical seat for the Liberals in October's election, Dalton was probably looking for something to help out MPP Sophia Aggelonitis. Interesting also that the province thinks the Cats should only miss season while Ivor Wynne is rebuilt. Certainly a string of early away games, plus maybe a home game in Moncton would free up a July for an extra month of building.
Hopefully now the stadium issue will be relatively settled and the Ticats can go back to trying to rebuild their brand.
