Bingo.

Brampton is largely populated by Indian, Pakistani etc.. Most of which don't identify with hockey.

Good point about the bunker too.. The 410 is always ridiculous around 6:30 when most would be on route, and last time I went (probably 5-6 years ago) it took us like 20-30 mins to get out of the parking lot. I can live with that downtown Toronto, because it can't be avoided.. But in Brampton its ridiculous.

Owners seem to think hockey team + GTA = goldmine.. Its not that simple. The Leafs are likely the only team that could still turn profit with a monkey at the wheel.. Other teams have to market and manage their franchise well for success.

Brampton is becomming less of a hockey town every time PIA or AI lands, I'm not surpised they decided to relocate.


Its very clear this 'author' is just looking for attention.
