GRIFFITHS SALE TO MCCAW QUESTIONED BY LOCAL BUSINESS JOURNAL

     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).
