Looks like some arenas are getting some work done to them,.it does mention Verdun,but I wonder if it's the Auditorium ? Personally I'd like them to remove that 'crap facade' on the Auditorium now,.and return it to it's original look,they've only plastered siding over the old brick building ,which looked pretty good, IMHO. I think the stuff they did cover it with was an attempt (albeit a poor one) to 'modernize' the exterior,way back when (70's I guess?)
Montreal plows ahead with arena renovations
The city is hoping Ottawa and Quebec will contribute two-thirds of the projected $89.5-million cost of broader renovations in 15 arenas.
Still, the executive committee last week approved spending of $1.6 million for renovation plans and blueprints in eight of the arenas most in need of better refrigeration for ice rinks.
The arenas are: Camilien Houde (Ville Marie), Howie Morenz (Villeray-St. Michel-Park Extension), Ahuntsic (Ahuntsic-Cartierville), Père Marquette (Rosemont-La petite Patrie), Doug Harvey (Côte des Neiges-Notre Dame de Grâce), Mont Royal (Plateau Mont Royal), Verdun (Verdun) and Martin Brodeur (St. Léonard).
