Ryerson considering Maple Leaf Gardens for athletic site

September 17, 2009

Ryerson University has been in talks with Loblaw Cos. Ltd about joint use of Maple Leaf Gardens, which has been sitting virtually idle since July 2004 when Loblaw bought the facility for an estimated $13 million. In a referendum in March, Ryerson students supported fee increases to go towards the construction of a new athletic centre, and the university is considering Maple Leaf Gardens as a site for the centre.
