QUEBEC (CP) - Quebec City Mayor Andree Boucher says the 2008 world hockey championships will go ahead as planned and funding for the $11-million event has been put in place.

Quebec City is to co-host the 2008 edition of the world hockey championship with Halifax, but planning for the event has been plagued by problems.

Boucher said today a new budget with some existing money being reallocated and a new organizing committee will get the championship on track.

Six-million-dollars of government money will be reallocated from the budget to celebrate Quebec City's 400th birthday in 2008.

CALGARY (CP) - Quebec City will remain as the co-host of the 2008 world hockey championship.

Hockey Canada made the announcement Wednesday night, following the ratification of the host agreement by Quebec City's council, which had originally been signed in April 2003, and approval of the operational and financial plans for the 2008 tournament.

But Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson said Wednesday that Quebec City will remain as the tournament co-host.
