Leiweke Discusses MLSE Exit, Says "Brutally Honest" Nature Caught Some Off Guard

LEAFS BRANCHING OUT: SPORTSNET's Mike Johnston reported Leiweke "has his sights set on the Air Canada Centre," after securing a new practice facility for the Raptors and a renovation plan for BMO Field. Leiweke said, "We are now talking to (MLSE ownership) about a major upgrade to Air Canada Centre in time for the NBA All-Star Game (in 2016). I don’t think it’s any secret we’re trying to bid on the World Cup of Hockey for 2016 for Toronto. We’d like to have the all-star game here for the NHL for our 100th year anniversary. All of this takes money and all of this requires us to makes sure that the ACC is a better fan experience for everybody" (SPORTSNET.ca, 8/27).
