MONTREAL – It’s been dubbed the “Big Owe” for its runaway construction costs and it has attracted widespread derision for falling concrete and roof rips but Montreal’s Olympic Stadium doesn’t just have detractors.
The Big O, as it is more commonly known, was built to be a monument and the signature piece of the first Olympics on Canadian soil – and so it was, said Dick Pound, former head of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

“But I think it ended up costing more than all the covered stadiums in North America combined,” he said, referring to a price tag of more than $1 billion.
The 2015 annual report by the agency that runs the stadium reported its roof was torn in 6,776 places and cost $454,000 to maintain last year – down from $1.4 million in 2014.
“We tried to give the athletes and the population a facility that met the requirements for entertainment and sport. Voila!” he said.
The 1976 Olympics were supposed to be a self-financing enterprise with a total cost not to exceed $310 million.

However, the price spiraled out of control soon after construction began.
The organizing committee’s official report later blamed a host of factors including technical difficulties, the escalating costs of raw materials and damaging labour conflicts.
Although the main stadium was built in time to host the Games, albeit barely, the tower and roof would not be completed until 1987.
Claude Phaneuf, the City of Montreal’s main engineer for the Olympic installations, still believes the stadium was a well-designed project.
Both he and Taillibert blame the venue’s technical failings on the province, which took over construction from Montreal and Taillibert in 1974 when the project began to fall behind schedule and run over budget.
They maintain the engineers placed in charge of the stadium weren’t qualified and miscalculated in ways that later caused a lengthy list of problems.
