CITY OF TORONTO SEEKS OUTSIDE NEGOTIATOR FOR RAPTORS DEAL

     The City of Toronto "may bring in outside help to negotiate
a deal for the Raptors' basketball stadium," according to this
morning's TORONTO STAR.  Yesterday's decision by the City
Council, which also approved a list of "physical benefits" they
want from the team and developers, comes amid criticism the city
"has posted a poor record of winning community facilities in
dealings with developers."  The city is seeking a south entrance
to Union Station, a galleria, two day-care centers, 35,000
square-feet of community service space, and money for school
facilities on the neighborhood.  The Council voted to give the
staff "the flexibility to retain any negotiators they feel are
needed to help finalize the complex deal," which the Raptors want
completed by July (Paul Moloney, TORONTO STAR, 6/7).
