Rogers Place has multiple windows/vistas on the main and upper concourse, but cannot be really seen or felt from the bowl.
Have played a few beer league games at the Community Rink, before they got the sun shades for the windows, if you were playing at certain times in the summer, you couldn't even see half the ice due to glare, and if you were going the other way you'd have the sun directly in your eyes. It was brutal.

Labatt Ice I used to drink for a while. It was my go-to beer just at strip clubs. Of course, you have to buy a drink at some over the top price so you'd nurse it while ogling the ladies. Maybe because it's a little bit stronger I found it easier to sip on and not gulp.

Maybe I missed this but BMO will be expanding to 45,000 for the 2026 World Cup

They have explored both permanent and temporary expansion plans.

There is still some glimmer of hope for those wishing a downtown arena in Lebreton Flats:

I'm confident that there will eventually be an arena in LeBreton Flats. It's such a no-brainer option. I know Melnyk has been difficult through this whole ordeal and is "planning" a new arena in Kanata, but I think that the Sens will eventually land here. This location is going to make way more sense post-COVID when revenue recovery is going to be the prime objective of NHL franchises over the next few years.

This location will definitely end up being the last parcel of LeBreton to be developed, but I remain optimistic that the Sens will eventually come to their senses and build an arena here.

The City and OSEG will be looking into replacing the 10,000 seat Civic Centre at Lansdowne in order to build a new north side stand for TD Place Stadium, along with a residential/hotel component. I'm hoping that instead of building a new, smaller arena at Lansdowne, they'll instead opt to build an NHL sized rink at LeBreton, which would compete directly with the CTC and hold all the advantages, forcing Melnyk to move downtown or sell. Since the NHL's policy is to keep teams in their current city whenever possible, they will push for a move to a new LeBreton arena over a new city.

^Interesting. Building the new NHL arena at LeBreton Flats seems to make so much sense.
How soon are they looking to replace the north grandstand (& Civic Centre) at Lansdowne ?

Discussions seem very preliminary at this point, so no specific timeline. The Civic Centre and north side stands are considered "functionally out of date" but not structurally unsound, so it's not a pressing issue at this time. My guess would be 5 to 10 years.

I didn't know about this, but I think this just improves the chances of the Sens eventually moving to LeBreton. In an ideal world, the City, OSEG, and the Sens would partner together to build a singular state-of-the-art arena at LeBreton to accomodate the Sens and the 67s (as well as attract other tenants like the NLL potentially). This would ideally work out for everyone because the Sens and 67s would both get new a new shared stadium with some contribution from the public purse. I do agree that a plan for a large LeBreton arena between OSEG and the City would likely be what forces the Sens to cave in, join the party and move downtown. Hopefully it pans out that way.

As a side note, I'd love to see TD Place get a new north stand that matches the gorgeous south stand.

I agree, and I'm optimistic as well.

It will eventually be built, even it if takes 5, 10 or 15 years.

This is what started to break the log jam in Calgary - the investigation of a mid sized stadium to replace our now torn down mid sized stadium. Changed the city's attitude about what a public contribution would look like.

shouldn't the flames just scale back the arena from 19,000 to 17,000 seats to save the project would make sense as nose bleed seats generate very little revenue and the flames who own the stampeders will soon need to invest in McMahon stadium before it becomes unusable for a city of Calgary's stature and importance in the CFL and in Canada.
