Budget notes from Montreal angle

La Presse has some budget notes from a Montreal perspective: money for the stadium roof (one of those perennial items), extra money for the REM but no money to enlarge the Palais des congrès, also a project that’s been mentioned for years and not acted on.

Given the coronavirus, it’s probably good sense not to make big plans this year to enlarge a building dedicated to international gatherings, but that may simply be a coincidence.
