GRIFFITHS SALE TO MCCAW QUESTIONED BY LOCAL BUSINESS JOURNAL
Published March 27, 1995
The sale of the Northwest Entertainment Group by Arthur Griffiths to Seattle billionaire John McCaw is questioned by Peter Ladner, publisher of BUSINESS IN VANCOUVER. Although Griffiths claims he is still in control of the Group, "why, unless McCaw put one over him, would Griffiths surrender control of this once proud civic aspect." Ladner writes that Griffiths could have remained majority partner if he found more financial partners, but it seems McCaw "knew how to force Griffiths to give it to him." Ladner writes that McCaw would "be a fool to do anything except give the fans all they want and more" (BUSINESS IN VANCOUVER, 3/20 issue).
