If this is true, the Quebec government will but up 400 million$ to help facilitate the city of Quebec to build an arena. I understand part of the goal is to attract a future Winter Olympics to the city. The government is always a major player in that. But part of the goal (if not the main goal) is to attract an NHL franchise. That's great.
Now what is the Government of Quebec going to do to help the Montreal Canadiens? do we get assistance of any kind? By the way, the Bell Centre (originally the Molson Centre) was ENTIRELY paid for by Molson Breweries. Not one penny of public money.
Looks like Quebecor (likely the future owners of a future Nordiques team) get a free building.
It would be nice to see some equality by the Government. What can they do for us?
That's good news for Quebec City citizens. I'm pretty sure that Quebecor will pay the full value of the arena but the government wants to help in order to speed up things. Also, they know that they will have the money back anyway in a couple of years.
