WHALE OF A TALE: REPORT SAYS ORCA BAY DISMISSING GRIFFITHS

          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).
