WINNIPEG CITY COUNCIL, MEC HEAD FOR MAY 1 JETS DEADLINE

     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).
