BCHL vote underway

The results of a mail-in vote by the BCHL board of governors should be known early next week as Chilliwack waits on a junior A team to replace the departed Chilliwack Bruins.

BCHL commissioner John Grisdale says the e-mail vote started yesterday (Thursday) and, according to league rules, there is a 14 day window for completion.

There’s no way it should take that long and Grisdale expects to have all votes accounted for by the end of the Victoria Day long weekend, leading into an official announcement on or around Tuesday.

Nothing’s official yet, but it seems a slam dunk that the relocation of the Quesnel Millionaires will come to pass.

The board has two choices.

Leave an inactive team in Quesnel and get no money, or approve relocation to a proven BCHL market and pocket a share of the relocation fee (speculation has it at $250,000).

Seems an easy choice, but the BCHL wheels are turning remarkably slow.
