Could the Battalion be on the move? (EDIT: Yes, to North Bay)

I think if Scott Abbott wants to spend his money on an OHL team, he can call it anything he likes . . . but as a North Bay hockey fan I'm rather blah about the name, the green and the logo.
Since the area's military history centers on the old air station which became an air base and eventually home to Bomarc missiles and a NORAD operations control centre (Note: no army base). I could see something like the Winnipeg Jets-look, a military aviation theme, going over big. Call them the Squadron instead of the Battalion.
Still even if they stay as the Battalion, I'll buy tickets, follow them and cheer them on, though I probably won't buy a jersey.
It just good to have the O back.
