I agree, and this is what the Gatineau Mayor - Marc Bureau, has been proposing for that HUUUUGE surface parking lot you see on the top right corner of the webcam pics - as the site of the new Guertin Arena, or Centre Multifonctionel as they call it. But unfortunately, there has been big opposition to his idea, mainly from the vocal owner of the furniture store which would have to relocate (Vice-Versa), and many Gatineau residents who are so car-centric that they don't see the logic behind having the new arena built downtown, and instead prefer it is built by the HWY 50 in Gatineau, or at the current site of the Guertin with easy access to the freeway.
