Another bridge or two (and none of these dinky 1-2 lane bridges, either) would help. 500 parking spaces allocated to the arena is not going to work. Montrealers may be used to taking the bus or metro to the games, but Ottowans will take a while to adapt. Transporting 18,000 to and from was always a huge obstacle in my opinion. I have not seen a solution to that yet. Even if LRT is the answer, that only resolves traffic from the East and South, it does nothing for the North or West. They want to increase the ticketholder base by expanding into Aylmer -- sure, it's not as far as Kanata, but it's still a pain to use the existing routes. And people from Kanata -- the existing ticket holders -- will likely just stay home.
I see where Melnyk wants to go to -- clearly my having fewer seats, stating he wants it to be an event and so on -- translation is "Higher ticket prices". Seriously, it's about time, since they are the lowest tickets in Canada, for a city that is one of the most affluent.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
