Markham arena promoter warns critics

Karen Rea was interviewed for an article in the Toronto Star discussing the controversial Markham arena deal and the threats of lawsuits:

The directors of a Markham ratepayers group say legal threats from the private promoter of the city’s proposed NHL-size arena concerning possible harm to his “reputation” won’t stop them from questioning the deal.

“We in Markham will not be intimidated when all we are doing is telling the truth,” Karen Rea, a director of the Markham Citizens Coalition for Responsible Government, said Tuesday.

Her comment follows a notice from a lawyer for Graeme Roustan, president of GTA Sports and Entertainment, who said “personal attacks” to his reputation on the coalition’s website or in a public meeting “are not appropriate.”
