Residents of Quebec City will have to wait until the results of the federal election are announced before the possible construction of a covered ice rink in Quebec City begins. Regardless of which party will be elected on October 19, the minister responsible for the Capitale-Nationale and the mayor of Quebec believe that the project will move forward.

“I think it has been settled with the Quebec government and the federal government, but I am not allowed to announce it during the elections,” said Régis Labeaume.

The mayor of Quebec does not believe that the outcome of the election could have any impact on the project. “It (the project) comes from infrastructure programs and choices made by Quebec.”

The ice rink project continues to have the support of the provincial government, says Sam Hamad. “We have always kept the money for the ice skating oval and for us, the Quebec government is on board with the Quebec Infrastructure Plan, thus we will resume progress on the file when the federal elections are over.”

The mayor also argues that the project was reduced to $60 million by applying the same process used for the construction of the amphitheatre. “It was the same case as the amphitheatre. What we did was cut, cut and cut. This is the process we usually use and it’s fine. “
