The government didn't pay for the (then) Molson Center, but they did pay for the MLS bid, the Saputo Stadium expansion, the Alouettes stadium expansion, the F1 race, the NASCAR race, the new roof for Olympic Stadium, and the tennis stadium. And that's just for sports in Montreal. It's just a shame they refused to finance the Expos' new stadium. It's only fair that it's Quebec City's turn. Plus, they need a new buliding NHL team or not, Le Colisée is just too old and has to be replaced. And the new building will eventually be used in an Olympic bid (they don't have to bid for the Olympics right away, the GM Place was 15 years old when it hosted the 2010 Olympics).
