Low arena needs support

Fundraiser underway to repair rink

The little arena that could has become the arena that can’t catch a break.

The Central Gatineau Arena is stuck in a catch-22 because it needs to raise money to fix a part that makes ice for the rink, but it needs a functioning ice rink to attract programming, which would bring in funding needed to pay for that part. And that’s ignoring the COVID-19 pandemic, which has shut down the arena for the past year and made any fundraising event options impossible.
