A few months ago, Stefan Leroux wrote that Opportunities to see the Acadie-Bathurst Titan move to the Montreal area (On South Beach) She was getting bigger and bigger.
It is clear that the file is becoming more and more concrete.
Steve Leal, owner of Fix Auto, has been contacted for several months to bring a team to the Longueuil area on a new arena to be built.
I say Longueuil, but at the moment Leal is looking for a city that is willing to fund the construction or upgrade of the arena. We’re talking about an arena with nearly 3,000 seats on the South Beach (Boucherville, Chambly, Chateauguay, Longueuil, Saint-Constant, Saint-Hiacinte, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Saint-Juli) or in Montreal as such.

What has changed is that the project looks more and more realistic. The sale of Titan, conditional on a move to the South Shore, will be nearly official at this time.
Even if we’re in Bathurst, we’re still saying plans have not been set and the club should stay in New Brunswick, nothing to suggest that at the moment, Titan’s stay at Baie de Challors is guaranteed.
After all, Fix Auto has been installed on the Lobbyist Registry for two weeks now.
Black on white, written that the goal is to move the franchise to the corner of Montreal’s south shore. We knew that was the point, but there, it’s hardly any clearer.
Hockey has never been lifted in Bathurst before. The club, which is clearly expected to move on the day the stadium is ready in the corner of Montreal, won a commemorative cup, but it has never managed to attract a consistently crowd.
In order to continue, therefore, the carrots appear to be cooked for Titan in the Maritimes. A return close to his roots (the club was founded in Laval) looks increasingly imminent.
