I laughed when I first read this as MLSE would never allow it.

(1) NHL FRANCHISE IN MARKHAM (12.2.6)
 
Moved by Regional Councillor J. Jones
Seconded by Deputy Mayor J. Heath
 
That the Town of Markham publicly express its interest in hosting a NHL franchise in Markham.
 
CARRIED

Huh
 
really? that is ridiculous, there are cities in canada much larger than Markham that cannot sustain an nhl franchise.
 
Is this a lark? Or do these guys genuinely think this is apropos to Markham council meetings?

The GTA could support 2 NHL teams but not on MLSE's watch.

My guess is that, in the event that the NHL actually decides to put another team in the GTA, Markham just wants people to know that they were the first to put their hands up.  I don't think any real time/money has been invested in this.

This would be incredible if this miracle were to somehow happen. hehehe. We can build an arena in a nice traffic-ey area like Markham Rd/Steeles across from The Landmark maybe? hehe

And the plot thickens... well maybe not for Markham but for the GTA.
