Quebec City to get stadium

Stadium expansion* :wink:

Great news for Quebec City if the funding streams work towards expanding Laval's stadium to a CFL-ready seat level. If this happens, I have no doubt that CFL football will work there. The Montreal_Quebec City rivalry will be off the charts!

Oski Wee Wee,

This will depend on who wins the upcoming election. Harper wins, Laval University gets a bunch of Federal money for its sports infrastructure including stadium expansion. Someone else wins, all bets are off.

Harper wins ... are you delirious ... who else is going to contest him?

Stephane Dion?

Great news for the CFL, that Harper will do anything to get his ass elected.

You hate to see public money being used to so blatantly buy votes, especially from the party whose raison d’etre was to put an end to all that shameless politicking, but if the CFL gets a ninth team and I get another road trip out of it, I can look past that. :wink:

Initially, I was disappointed the Maritimes didn’t get this funding. After thinking a bit, the Montreal/Quebec City rivalry would be awesome for the CFL. Hopefully it increases popularity and interest in the league and that helps the Maritimes get a team soon.

Of course, I’d like to see Ottawa back too. Cripes, that would be an eleven team league. Giddy up!

What does the "C" in "CFL" stand for?

Anyone who assists in giving power to Harper and his Neo-Con toadies in the Republican Party of Canada is inexcusably foolish.

Wow. That's definitely the stupidist thing I've seen here for a long time.

BTW. NAZI stood for National SOCIALIST Party.

Maybe the Guys for Ottawa will decided to play in Quebec City ..Cause Ottawa Don't want them

Hahahaaaa!! You're right. I meant to say a Conservative majority win.

harper is george bush wannabe, you want this alberta cowboy redneck as prime-minister? vote liberal, green, ndp, anything but liberal baby.

that article makes no sense, it says they're getting money, then it say the proposal was rejected.

Thinking Harper will keep his word on that is like thinking a rattle snake won't bite you if you're nice to it.

True, I guess the stadium will happen then, which is great. I'm not sure how I feel about funding sports stadiums through taxes but is it really any different than funding other infrastructure that might bring revenue to the city?
