I had a very good chat with WHL Commissioner Ron Robison this week, regarding his thoughts surrounding the current state and future of the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
There is no secret the club has been struggling on and off the ice the past number of seasons. Robison met last week with members of the Hurricanes Board of Directors to discuss a number of issues, one of those surrounding a motion put forward by a shareholder at the last Annual General Meeting to have shareholders hold a vote as to whether they would like to keep the team community-owned or sold to a private owner.
Robsion says in the WHL's view, having that vote at the next AGM this fall serves little purpose. He would like the shareholders meeting moved up to sometime early in the new year, so the ownership model for the franchise can be settled going forward.
Robison's entire interview with me is below.
