RAPTORS UNHAPPY AT CITY'S REQUEST TO PAY FOR LAND
Published May 31, 1995
The Raptors are telling the city of Toronto they will not pay for a piece of land that is an "integral" part of the team's C$200M arena development, according to the FINANCIAL POST. In a letter to city officials, Raptors Stadium Project Dir Jay Cross explained that the benefits Toronto will get from a downtown arena should be "more than ample compensation" in place of the C$1.6M the city has requested. Toronto Councillor Michael Walker: "As far as I'm concerned, they're not getting a nickel from the taxpayers." The Council's executive committee is expected to discuss the matter today (FINANCIAL POST, 5/31).
