Doest anger Shenkarow As much As it confuses i think there has been very Good dialogue at our the jets president but Ive been hearing on the Street that the enterprises is going its own Way on the Arena Issue and that the mayors committee was just a smoke maybe in naive but i Hope that not the Shenkarow has made it Clear that Hes not prepared to Buck enterprises and build his own build Hes also made it Howe that he supports evas proposal for a building near the convention Centre and he also supports the efforts of the mayors committee to come to an honest decision not a private plan by the there Are obviously influences at work which Are up to the same old Shenkarow there is a lot of scepticism in the business Community right in hoping our committee is making the jets organization the

groups dictate to the City things that Are detrimental to its the enterprises source who spoke with Thampi said the Wec will run the new multiplex and will strike a Deal with Shenkarow under which the jets would receive a Good por Tion of Concession revenues so the hockey club can cover increased really it would appear that no matter what Shenkarow and the private owners try to enterprises has always intended to guarantee that they never receive an honest return on their however his brother Randy Moffat and Harvey Secter have been involved in an ownership capacity with the club for 12 it is unlikely the Wec can get rid of them at least not without losing the hockey club in the Shenkarow has said he needs an answer on the Arena question by june he May get the answer by june 1 but it May not be the one he however if the As an Arm of the builds a Public a funded multiplex at the it will place a huge onus on the mayor and on the after it would be frightening to think of the webs
