The executive director of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association says the end of the NHL lockout should be a big money relief.
Charles Gauthier says Vancouver Canucks hockey games brought in about one-million bucks per game for the downtown core-- and while that money disappeared as a result of the labour dispute, he's confident it will be business as usual once the puck is dropped.
"I suspect that the majority of people will come back and enjoy hockey again. I'll be in that camp."
Gauthier adds he hopes those who were laid off due to businesses feeling the lockout pinch will find work again.
