Second Round Of Bidding For Team
KEEP IT LOCAL: A Toronto Star-Angus Reid online poll indicated that 74% of Quebec residents said that "it's important" Gillett sells the team to someone from the province. From a given list of possible buyers, 35% of respondents said that they would like to see former Canadiens GM Serge Savard acquire the team, while 12% supported Laliberte and 9% chose Dion and Angelil. Another 16% said that it "made no difference who bought the team." Also, while 43% of respondents said that the provincial government "would be justified in lending money to local investors to buy the Canadiens," 39% opposed the idea (TORONTO STAR, 4/16).
