Growing city on Vancouver Island that can help Victoria with costly ferry-aided road trips, check.
Arena proposal, check.
Wants to rent arena to potential team owner... huh?
We'll see how this plays out.
One thing for sure... the Kootenay Ice are gasping and grasping in Cranbrook. They seem like they've got one more year there.
Nanaimo had a team in the 80s called the Islanders.if I remember correctly, they were the old Great Falls Americans.

Due to numerous threats of legal action from certain people.......all of the above is my opinion only and it should be noted that I have never invested in the ABA. It is simply one mans opinion.

Really curious to find out if Nanaimo would vote for this.
