SPIRIT VOWS TO "INTENSIFY" QUEST TO SAVE THE JETS

     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).
