NORDIQUES HAVE ONE DAY TO STUDY NEW PROPOSAL
Published May 10, 1995
The Nordiques have until Thursday to examine a proposal by the Province of Quebec intended to keep the team in Canada. Nordiques Co-Owner Marcel Aubut was given the proposal yesterday, according to Premier Jacques Parizeau. Parizeau said both sides agreed to keep the details of the deal a secret: "During these 48 hours, we will discuss it and try to get it moving" (TORONTO STAR, 5/10). The offer was expected to include a demand that the Province have part ownership of the team, in exchange for the team dropping its demands that a casino or lottery help finance the team (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 5/10). The team reportedly has a US $75M offer from Comsat Video to relocate to Denver. RAPTORS COOL TO IHL: The Raptors' interest in buying an IHL team "may have cooled," according to Craig Daniels in this morning's TORONTO SUN. IHL VP Communications Tim Bryant: "They've backed off on their interest at this time, is what they told us." Raptors President John Bitove said the team's interest in the IHL was "preliminary at best" and that they are focused on their efforts to get the Air Canada Centre through the zoning process (TORONTO SUN, 5/10).
