The City of Hamilton is threatening to launch a 35-million dollar lawsuit over the construction delays at Tim Hortons Field.
Officials have filed a notice of action against stadium contractor Ontario Sports Solutions, Infrastructure Ontario and the Pan Am Games organizing committee.
The city’s claim includes 14-million dollars on behalf of the Ticats, which missed half of what was supposed to be their inaugural season because of the construction delays.
City Manager Chris Murray declined to comment on air, but in an email to CHML News, he writes the city’s “actions are being done to preserve our rights while we remain at the table to seek a solution.”
Murray adds OSS continues to fix a list of minor deficiencies, such as cracks in the concrete and missing cup holders in the stands.
