We can find land to build a stadium. People keep saying it HAS to be downtown, but I think it can work as long as it's in close proximity to the downtown core. I think near the Old Port would be amazing, but parking sort of worries me.
Honestly, Labatt park looked like it was going to be a beautiful stadium and the cost wasn't that ludicrous (~200 million IIRC). I think no roof can work in Montreal, but I wouldn't be opposed to a roof system as long as it can EASILY be retracted and isn't fragile.
I don't care if this doesn't happen overnight, and I don't expect it to. But we NEED to show support for a franchise back over here. We absolutely need to show the world we are interested in getting our team back. We can't just stand around, mope and say "Baseball will never come back" or "Baseball can't work here" because that's bullcrap.
