Stadium builder short $89 million until the project is finished
CBC News
There's an $89 million carrot dangling in front of Ontario Sports Solutions (OSS) to finish the Pan Am stadium as quickly as possible, and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) says it plans to make sure the consortium bites. IO is holding back $89 million until Tim Horton's Field is completed, which means OSS has to borrow from lines of credit and find other ways to cover the remaining costs to finish the stadium, said John McKendrick, executive vice-president of IO.
