UNION, FANS MAD AT PROSPECTS OF ANOTHER CORPORATE ARENA

     A union of Canadian Airlines is upset with their company's
plan to pay C$10M to change the name of the Olympic Saddledome in
Calgary to the Canadian Airlines Saddledome.  Union officials
complain that the company is spending that money during a time of
difficulty for the "money starved" airline, according to the
CANADIAN PRESS.  Reportedly, the Flames will also fly for free on
Canadian, which will cost the airline an estimated C$850,000 a
year (CP/GLOBE AND MAIL, 7/20).  In this morning's CALGARY
HERALD, a call-in poll found that 237 opposed the name change
verses 94 who approved (CALGARY HERALD, 7/20).
