HOLD THE ROOF AT THE BIG 'O
Published November 28, 1994
The proposed $57.2M renovation of the permanent steel roof at Olympic Stadium in Montreal will be delayed by nine-12 months. Minister of the Olympic Installations Board Rita Dionne-Marsolais said the current roof is sufficient until her department can complete a "full review of the proposed new roof." Dionne- Marsolis: "We're going to re-evaluate all the technical aspects - - and above all the costs." The roof project was approved by the previous Liberal government, but "preliminary work shows that the project as it is will go overbudget." To secure the current roof while the studies are done, the OIB will spend close to $6M to reinforce it (Andy Riga, MONTREAL GAZETTE, 11/26).
