Toronto councillor Dennis Fotinos said that he and "a growing number of his colleagues believe" the Maple Leafs "do not intend to go through with their plans to build an arena at Exhibition Place," according to David Shoalts of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Fotinos called the site "a bargaining tool" for the Leafs to become partners with the Raptors at Air Canada Centre. Leafs VP Tom Anselmi, who heads the arena project: "This is the site we want to build on." Due-diligence ends February 28 (GLOBE & MAIL, 1/29).
