I'm not exactly sure what % of TNSE David Thomson owns, I guess I'd be surprised if it was 50%, but maybe it is....
my understanding is that he owned the property the Eatons building sat on and when that was looked at as being a possible location for MTS Centre, David Thompson, rather than taking cash for the purchase of the property, asked for an ownership position ... how that was structured, I don't really know, but would Chipman sell 50% of TNSE / Moose (at the time) to acquire the land??
