Too Many Ice Rinks, Too Little Money

Saint John's got a lot of ice rinks for a city its size, which means some of them are falling into disrepair.

Mayor Mel Norton tells CHSJ News he still thinks it would make sense to build a 4-Plex recreational facility somewhere central like Long Wharf.

Norton says it naturally depends on whether or not the money is there--but a modern facility would mean tournaments stop going to places like Moncton and Fredericton and that we aren't missing in on sports tourism dollars.
