I kinda wonder why London went the size they did with their centre. It could have been larger for a city that size. Moncton built an arena with a nearly 7000 capacity 40 years ago when the city was half the size it is today. I don't think a facility in the 9000-10,000 range is out of reach, and frankly I think anything less is a missed opportunity, especially considering the recent and projected demographic growth.
