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.

It still leaves them playing a World Championship in a dump of a rink.
I believe the final will be in Quebec City because it seats 5 or 6 thousand more than Halifax.
