MLSE Senior Exec Resigns, Five Others Fired Amid Ticket Scandal

Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) Dir of Sales & Service Jim Edmands has resigned and five other employees "have been fired after the company learned of ticket irregularities," according to Rick Westhead of the TORONTO STAR. MLSE Exec VP & COO Tom Anselmi confirmed Edmands' resignation, "even though he did nothing wrong." Anselmi said that MLSE "discovered irregularities in its ticketing department last week." Anselmi said Edmands "stepped up and resigned. He said he couldn't continue because it happened under his watch. It's been a shock to the whole organization." Anselmi noted that Edmands worked for MLSE for "about nine years," and added that ticket sales exec John Jones and "four other employees in the department had been fired 'for conduct that wasn't in keeping with what we hold important as a company.'" MLSE has not decided "whether to forward details of the case to Toronto police" (TORONTO STAR, 4/5).
