whoa i cant beleive people are actually all worried about this issue... its just poutine!!
the point isnt "just" poutine. its our rights. they ban smoking in public places because of second hand smoke and thats understandable. Are they worried the heath fumes from the poutine will affect the person next to you's health?
Guys, guys, guys. The municipal council will back down because if they take out fast food out of the arenas (all of it except hot dogs, might I add), minor hockey will suffer, because then cantines are all managed by minor hockey here.
I doubt it will happen.
Though, I need to add, that the poutines in the Gatineau arenas are godawful. The best place is in Papineauville, about 20 km east of Gatineau. Best damn fries in all of the arenas.
Man, there's a restaurant literaly 30 seconds walk from where I live that makes the best poutine I've ever had. They even have chicken-poutine with a spicy sauce in it which, believe it or not, is amazing.
