The Stadium is far from west side of Montreal. That's the problem. A lot of young families and money was moving west in the last couple of decades and no metro in the west. People would not go because of the travel and inconvenience. Baseball was very popular in the west island growing up. I played and so did most of my friends. But we would go maybe once or twice a year. One of our parents would drop us off and the other would pick us up. It's not a fun drive.
All in all, with the increasing young families moving out west, or Laval even, a location off Decarie would be centered perfectly to reach the larger market.
