New Gatineau Olympique Arena

So Last week Gatineau finally voted to approve a new arena! Well sorta, they still have to get approval from Federal and Provincal Governments to get 2/3rds of it funded. I love the old Bob feel, but it really did need to go a long time ago!

Gatineau residents have big ideas for the new 5,000-seat complex to be constructed on the site of the nearly 60-year-old Robert Guertin Arena.

Some say a new facility should host events beyond just hockey, making "The Bob" a more multi-purpose venue and a nice boost for the community.

Gatineau City Council decided on Tuesday to demolish the Robert Guertin building. The facility's seating capacity currently falls short of the Quebec Junior Hockey League's requirements for at least 3,500 seats.
