CFN – I spoke with Rick Lapierre of the Cornwall River Kings this morning prior to the press conference about what’s happening with the team.
Mr. Lapierre was upset at Seaway News coverage which he termed inaccurate. He stated that he has nothing against Mayor Bob Kilger, but the terms and conditions at the Civic Complex were killing the team.
He cited the rink boards and advertising situation strangling the club and that Colts Owner Ian MacInnis jacking up fees from approximately $100K per season to $139K
His frustration was clearly audible during the phone chat expressing that while many of the public have been fingering him as a villain all the team wanted was fairness as it’s the City and taxpayers that own the rink; not the Colts.
More to follow at the team press conference this morning.
