Quesnel Millionaires on the verge of extinction?

I've heard rumours about this, but didn't want to speculate without knowing for sure. It appears now that where there's smoke there's fire.

Here's the latest from the Quesnel Observer:

BCHL's Quesnel Millionaires folding?
By Percy Hebert - Quesnel Cariboo Observer

The future of the BCHL Quesnel Millionaires franchise in Quesnel is in jeopardy an anonymous source close to the team said.

Rumours, regarding the future of the Millionaires, have been circulating for more than a week now and have made their way to city hall.

"I've heard the rumours," Quesnel city councilor Ron Paull said.

The decision, regarding the future of the Mills in Quesnel, rests in part with what Mayor Mary Sjostrom and the city have to say Tuesday during the information session on the proposed Mutli-Centre, the source said.

However, speaking notes provided to city council for the Multi-Centre information session did not include a reference to the Mills, Paull noted.

Bob Sales, president of the Quesnel Millionaires hockey club and Dave Sales, executive director with the BCHL, have not returned phone calls.
