This is not just for the people of Moncton, this development will benefit the Maritimes as a whole community, drawing in larger events benefits the economy and this is why the arena should be larger than the set 7,500 seats.
We believe the people of Moncton would like to build for the future and with the recent announcement of the seating being set at 7,500 it is a disapointment to many. The dream of the Mayor and deceased Ian Fowler was to build a 10,000 seat arena and was slowly squashed by those around them. The current coliseum holds 6,700 seats and with the new arena being set at 7,500 that is only an add of 800 seats, which is the bare minimum for any larger event.
We believe that the arena should have a minimum of 9000 seats and if we can gather 1000 signatures we can show the city that the people of the greater Moncton area and the Maritimes are behind Mayor Leblanc and are looking into the future of the city and what it can and could become.
