The Quebec Minister in charge of the Olympics Installations Board, Mr. Victor Goldbloom, is to recommend that the 1976 Olympic Games go ahead in Montreal.
Speaking shortly before he left for the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck on wednesday (28 January, 1976), he said the main stadium would be ready, but incomplete for the opening on 7 July.
He said the stadium would be completed after the Games were over and some of the vital components-like seats- would be temporary installations.
Mr. Goldbloom went to great lengths to stress that while the stadium and swimming pool might not be completed, they would be ready for use by athletes.
Mr. Goldbloom is to meet officials of the International Olympic Committee in Innsbruck this weekend. He will give them details of exactly what parts of the strike-plagued site will be finished.
