It's national news, I'm sorry as much dislike/hate there is for Toronto and the Leafs, they are a national brand. It is also a deal involving the major owners of the two largest sports tv/radio brands in Canada. This is a HUGE story that has national implications.

Rogers Arena? Canucks play in an arena owned by the owners of the Leafs!?!
Whitecaps sponsored by the owners of TFC!?!
Two media companies now are the bosses of Brian Burke and Ron Wilson
Bell also owns part of the Canadiens.
TSN and Sportsnet are in the middle of a major battle for our viewership and listenership.
