Partially yes, though as I understand it another factor was that because MLSE was so obscenely profitable for OTPP, suggested by their squads of tax attorneys & investment advisors that they would be better off, keeping more in paying lower capital gains taxes through the divestiture of that asset with a more diversified blue chip portfolio in other jurisdictions. The timing was right as well of course, what with Bell/Rogers anxious to acquire the assets & content.
