New Ryerson Facilities coming ?

Nice find by Neate Sager from the CIS Blog in today's Toronto Star indicating that the Ryerson administration is looking at the old Maple Leaf Gardens, located just north of the main Ryerson campus in downtown Toronto, as a possible spot for their planned new athletic facilities, which would likely include a new gym for basketball. Sources advised over the summer that Rye is in the hunt for a location, one of which is the old Gardens, where the Tor/Buff Braves once toiled in the mid-to-late 70's. However, the Gardens is probably one of several areas buildings/locations under consideration. Regardless, expect Ryerson to at a minimum plan for a much larger, modern basketball facility, another excellent development for CIS basketball as those of us who care continue to market the sport in Canada's largest market.
