SPIRIT VOWS TO "INTENSIFY" QUEST TO SAVE THE JETS
Published August 2, 1995
The Spirit of Manitoba emerged from a four-hour meeting last night vowing to "intensify its quest" to keep the Jets in Winnipeg, according to John Douglas of the WINNIPEG FREE PRESS. Members said "there is only dishonor in failing to finish the race." Over the next several days, Spirit plans to "hit" Manitobans with infomercials and even a song, in an attempt to "recapture the emotion" that propelled the Save the Jets campaign to raise $61M in four days just two months ago. Spirit President Cam Osler: "The true question is whether the community is going to support the project with the financial resources that were committed before, plus another $20 million. We are resolved to focusing our efforts on that and proving to the world the city can do that" (WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 8/2).
