CONSTRUCTION OF RAPTORS ARENA FACES HUGE SETBACK

     The Raptors' arena plans "have hit a snag" that will
probably delay the start of construction past the Province's
October 1 deadline and force the team to play an extra year at
the SkyDome, according to Craig Daniels of the TORONTO SUN.  The
delay is being caused by four parties, including the SkyDome, who
said they will appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) the
zoning approval granted by the city in July.  OMB COO Diana Marci
said "it was impossible" to tell whether a formal hearing would
be required without all necessary information.  If any party
requires a hearing, it's "unlikely" the Raptors will have the
foundation poured before October 1.  Missing the deadline would
force the team to pay the Province a $1M penalty (TORONTO SUN,
9/1).
