Sadly, we are nowhere close to building a baseball stadium in Montreal. I just can't see it happening in the foreseeable future. And this is coming from a huge Expos fan.

Building the new arena in Quebec City made way more sense than building a new stadium in Montreal (because the other arena needed to be replaced, they can have shows in it and there's a fairly good chance the NHL will come back) and yet that took years to materialize and it almost didn't happen.

I can't see anyone (government or private investor) willing to fund a stadium in Montreal because of how big of a financial risk it would be considering a baseball team failed here not that long ago. The problem with baseball stadiums is they basically can't be used for anything other than baseball and the occasional big show.
