RAPTORS TELL LEAFS: NOW OR NEVER
Published January 9, 1997
The Raptors have "issued a deadline" of next Wednesday for the Maple Leafs to decide if they're interested in a joint arena deal, according to Craig Daniels of the TORONTO SUN. If the Leafs "can't make up their minds by then," the Raptors "claim they'll go at it alone" at Air Canada Centre. Daniels notes that the deadline is "being driven" by a C$40M payment that Raptors Majority Owner Allan Slaight has to make before January 18 to commission construction of the proposed Air Canada Centre (TORONTO SUN, 1/9).
