(CP) - Hockey Canada has given Quebec City seven days to settle problems related to the organization of the 2008 world hockey championship or it may move the event to another city.

Quebec City, which is to co-host the tournament with Halifax, had asked for 10 days. Bob Nicholson, president of hockey's governing body in Canada, said eight issues need to be settled to convince Hockey Canada that Quebec can make the event a success.

Chief among them is to find the right chairman to lead the organization.

They also want assurances that the city and its fans will support the tournament, which will held in Canada for the first time in the year of the 100th anniversary of the International Ice Hockey Federation.

so if Quebec can't have it does that mean it won't be in Halifax either?

That doesn't sound good. They've asked for 10 days when they've been given seven? There's eight issues that need to be resolved, including finding someone to run the organization?

Man, I hope they get it figured out but it doesn't look promising.
