In a Times Colonist article published today, Victoria Grizzlies vice-president of business operations Sonya Saujani said, “we’ve hit an end of the road, so to speak, with West Shore Parks and Rec. It looks like we’re not going to get a deal. We have until the end of the month to figure this out, but there is a good chance the Grizzlies could be going black then”.

“Ownership is not prepared to lose any more money and West Shore Parks and Rec doesn’t seem to understand that.

“We’re not trying to get rich here, we’re just trying to break even and keep this team in Victoria. We’ve done everything we can to keep this team in Victoria, now it’s up to someone else to step up and give us a place to play that we can afford,” she added.
