WINNIPEG CITY COUNCIL, MEC HEAD FOR MAY 1 JETS DEADLINE
Published April 7, 1995
The Winnipeg City Council is scheduled to vote April 19 on a zoning amendment that would allow the Manitoba Entertainment Complex (MEC) to build a new arena for the Jets. If the zoning for the facility is approved, Mayor Susan Thompson says the council will look at the MEC's final business plan for approval of the project on April 28. The MEC, a group of local business leaders, has until May 1 to submit a deposit to buy the Jets and keep them in Winnipeg (Nick Martin, WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 4/7).
