Is that supposed to be BMO's capacity with temp seating for special events? If so... why are you only doing that for BMO's capacity since Lansdowne was designed have temp seating to 40.000+ for Grey cups?
Wikipedia lists BMO's capacity as expandable to 28,000.

Lansdowne will be expandable to 40,000 by adding seats in the end zones.

Hockey day in Canada for Canada's 150th could feature all outdoor games.

Leafs at Sens
Oilers at Flames
Canucks at Jets
Nordiques at Habs
subtle

Why does Rogers Centre (note the connection), not count? There are
pipes underneath, which were put in, just because of such an instance?

Hockey on the canal would be beyond mindblowingly epic. Especially with the tie-in to Canada's 150th, what else would be more appropriate?

BMO's not winterized either, meaning they can't hold events at the stadium during the winter months.
