WATCH: Province blames Pan AM construction delays on weather
However, Minister thinks all projects will be done by next year's event
6 0

The province is blaming a bad winter on delays on the new Hamilton Tigercats stadium, which will also be used for the 2015 Pan Am Games.

But Minister in Charge of Pan Am Michael Coteau says he's not worried there will be any delays on any of the other structures being built or renovated for next year's sporting event in the GTHA.

Because of the delays, Tim Horton's Field won't be ready for home games on July 26th and 31st.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath still wonders if this means other projects may not be complete on time.

NDP Pan Am Critic Paul Miller pressed the province on the issue in Question Period, claiming the delay has been known for months. Miller claims the Liberals haven't made the completion of the stadium a priority.

As for cost to the taxpayer, Coteau maintains any extra costs will be paid by the developer.
