Ryerson basically needs a "third leg" to fund the renovation of Maple Leaf Gardens, where the Leafs played back when they were a hockey team and not a bank.
"Ryerson President Sheldon Levy announced at a Senate meeting on Oct. 6 that the Weston family and Loblaws are pledging $20 million to build the facility. That matches the amount the school committed after a student referendum passed last year."

There are also architectural details:
"Ryerson's hockey team (would) play their games on the building's third floor under the historic rafters. The rink will be accompanied by championship-sized volleyball and basketball courts.

"The Gardens' second floor will house student facilities like a women's-only gym, high performance centre and studios."

Sweet. Without speaking for all the contributors, there's no reason not to be in the tank for this project.
