The conservative really need the region of Quebec if they ever want to win a majority
. Charest said often that Québec has to have a new Arena. The private funding will come with the naming rights. Labeaume said in an interview that he asked for 400M in order to get less after negociation. I have never been so optimistic about this arena.
If by region of Quebec you mean Montreal, Sure.
The conservatives need to avoid splitting the vote if they are to stand a chance.
As for the arena, I hope it gets done
Good for the province (if NHL ever returns)
Good for the country (olympic bid)
