WHALE OF A TALE: REPORT SAYS ORCA BAY DISMISSING GRIFFITHS
Published November 7, 1997
Orca Bay Sports & Entertainment, the parent company to the Canucks, has told former Canucks Majority Owner Arthur Griffiths to "clear his office" at GM Place and "cut his ties" with the team, according to David Shoalts of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Although Griffith is "still listed" as the team's Vice Chair and alternate Governor of the Canucks, sources told Shoalts that the team told Griffiths to be "out of the building by next week." Kevin Bass, VP/Communications & Community Investment for Orca Bay, "denied" that Griffiths was told to leave, saying that his departure was a "possibility." Griffith would "neither confirm nor deny" the story, but he "made it clear" that the "only thing left in his relationship" with Orca Bay is the three years left on a consulting contract and that he's "not being consulted for anything" (GLOBE & MAIL, 11/7).
