Devonshire Arena due for the wrecking ball

A longtime fixture in the north end of Halifax will come down next year, according to CBC.

The Devonshire arena will be demolished but the city will hold on to the land for a possible future community centre. Council has also approved tearing down the Gray Arena in Dartmouth and the LeBrun Arena in Bedford. Both sites will be offer to coimmunity groups for non-profit uses.

As for the future of the Halifax Forum, council wants more studies done before making a decision on demolishing it.
