Tim Hortons Field, One Month Out

With a month to go before the Ticats take to the field for their first home game of the 2014 season, I dropped by the new stadium this week for a look at the progress. Yes, there is progress, as workers scramble over the structure in a race against time. Will it be ready? I’ll leave it for others to decide. Have a look. – Barry Gray
