RIM Exec (not Ballsillie) wants to bring a OHL team to Thunder Bay

Full Story from TBSource

Basically to summarize, Anthony LeBlanc, vice-president of global sales for RIM and Thunder Bay native would like to own an OHL franchise (or possibly a WHL franchise, but he seems more intent on an OHL franchise) and run it in Thunder Bay in a brand new 6,000-7,000 seat arena (currently the biggest arena holds about 3,400).

This project, he admits, is in its preliminary stages and has some obvious hurdles, but hurdles he believes can be overcome.
