GIVE TO THE JETS, GET A TAX BREAK
Published June 26, 1995
The Spirit of Manitoba, the group trying to purchase the Jets and keep them in Winnipeg, will unveil a plan today to local officials to offer a tax break to those who donate to their cause, according to this morning's WINNIPEG FREE PRESS. John Douglas reports that the group's guaranteed "investment pool" will fund the team's proposed new arena "in perpetuity and fund other 'life-enriching' ventures regardless of the success of professional hockey" (WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 6/26). Meanwhile, in Minneapolis, potential Twin Cities investors Richard Burke and Steven Gluckstern say "everything's still in place" to move the team to the Target Center if financing in Winnipeg should fall through (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 6/25).
