DOCUMENTS REVEAL ADDITIONAL INTEREST IN MAPLE LEAF GARDENS
Two additional parties showed interest in an investment in
Maple Leaf Gardens, Inc., before and after the death of MLG
Majority Owner Harold Ballard, according to documents filed in
Ontario Court by the Ministry of the Attorney General and Office
of the Public Trustee. The interest of the other parties "has
become a key issue in the bitter legal fight over the takeover"
of MLG by Steve Stavro last year. The two agencies are currently
looking into the takeover of MLG by Stavro. Executors of the
Ballard Estate argue that nobody showed interest or made an offer
for Ballard's shares before Stavro exercised his option to buy.
