The 2019 Memorial Cup Committee was in town yesterday taking a look at the new downtown centre and presumably being wined and dined by the Wildcats and City officials. Apparently they were also taken to the 4 ice centre, the Moncton Stadium, and the Casino. It’s between us and Halifax to see who hosts next year’s national major junior championship. They’re going to make the announcement April 5th.
