Owner of Toronto Argonauts, Sen. David Braley, speaks at MBOT Event

Mississauga, ON (January 25, 2013)  - Senator  David Braley, the owner of the Toronto Argonauts (this year's 100th Grey Cup winners ) was the keynote speaker at Mississauga Board of Trade's Growth & Power Breakfast Series on January 24, 2013 at The Waterside Inn in Mississauga.

Braley, who is also the owner of CFL team the BC Lions, was born in Montreal and raised in Hamilton, Ontario where he attended and graduated from McMaster University.

Braley got his start in football when he owned the Hamilton Tiger-Cats from 1987 until 1990, when the team returned to community ownership.  He returned to the CFL with his purchase of the BC Lions in 1997. In early 2010, he also became owner of the Argonauts, becoming the only person to own two CFL teams simultaneously.

"We were proud to host Sen. David Braley as the keynote speaker at our Growth and Power Breakfast Series in January," said Sheldon Leiba, MBOT President and CEO.

"Sen. Braley is an influence not only in the sports world, but also in the business world. He has worked hard to get to where he is today and we look forward to having him share his experiences with the Mississauga business community."
