More importantly I would rather see arenas standardized with carpeting on the floor. I've seen more kids hurt themselves this year due to moisture on the floor then I care to admit. I think it is a safety issue and some games have been called as a result of this problem.
Municipalities need to be aware of this otherwise they run the risk of lawsuits for injuries. Munis needs to take responsibility for this. A/C in a building becomes a secondary concern in my opinion. That being said there are ways to displace the heat in the summer in a cost effective manner that Munis should consider at the very least without incurring the burden of A/C costs. At minimum they could rent large fans like they do in Awkesasne.
