"If he chose to have it in Kitchener, we are prepared to assist in finding an appropriate site and doing what we can to make sure it gets here," said Kitchener Mayor Carl Zehr, who spoke with Balsillie on Thursday morning. "He's not at that stage yet. There are many things to be done before you'd even be at that stage."
Whether or not Basillie is planning to move the team, it would not surprise me to discover that the Mayor is in regular contact with one of his wealthiest (possibly the wealthiest) constituents.
