The Big Owe

Built in the 1970s for the '76 Summer Olympics, the Montreal Olympic Stadium is familiarly known as the 'Big O' or more cynically as the 'Big Owe', a comment on the sky-high costs of hosting the Olympics, and this stadium in particular. It has the largest seating capacity of any Canadian stadium and has been home to various city baseball and football teams, but that's no longer so. It's only used now for special events like trade fairs and big concerts.

With permanent seating for over 56,000, it's really an underused White Elephant. For those nostalgic or curious about the spirit of the 60s, the tour of the stadium is interesting and the view of Montreal from the top is outstanding.
