On Monday night, all 3 levels of government met with Barry Shenkarow, Jim
Burns (chair of the Burns committee, tasked with figuring out how to keep
the Jets here), and a group of local businessmen. Out of this meeting came
a commitment to build a new barn downtown. The cost of this (around
$110 to $120 million) is supposed to be borne by the private sector.

The general feeling is that more private sector money will come forward
with this commitment. They are going to ask Shenkarow to extend his
deadline (which is tomorrow) for an extra year. He'll probably do it.

Things are much better these days, compared to the gloom and doom last
Friday. When Premier Gary Filmon announced that government could not
afford to foot the bill for a new arena, it felt like a family member was
given only 3 years to live with a terminal illness. They'll work something
out.

I'm not too happy with the downtown location. Where are we supposed to
park? Sure, there are parkades, but at five bucks 45 times a season, thats
a lot of scratch. Besides, with more juvenile delinquents running around,
count on your car being vandalized or stolen.

Watch for the Jets to make some noise this season. With Keith Tkachuk,
Teemu Selanne, Teppo Numminen, and Alexei Zhamnov combined with good old
Western Canadian heart, the Jets will get past the second round of the
playoffs.

 Go Jets Go!!!!

I think that you mean "borne by the public sector" ... the impact of
the building will be far greater than the $100M+ ... if it doesn't
go, the city will spend at least that much one welfare cheques ...
the jobs and downtown revitalization that money would support would
obviously have a much different impact on the city (duh!).  An arena
downtown makes sense because one can plan a night out around a game.
The present Arena is nearly in the middle of nowhere ... Polo Park
mall next to it is closed by the start of the third period, and the
bars and clubs nearby aren't much to write home about.  But downtown
can be something special ... if they do the right thing.

Was reading the paper today and it said that Winnipeg will be getting
the new arena needed to keep the team in the city.  So I guess it
looks like they will be staying.

Looks like Winnipeg haters will have to either continue their
wishful thinking that the Jets will leave "real soon now" or
spend $3 and by an effing *MAP*!! (-;

The local and provincial politicos did the right thing ...
either spend $100M on the Jets and for jobs and the downtown,
or else spend it on future welfare cheques that would happen
otherwise.

I think the essence of the deal in Winnipeg right now is that
some Winnipeg businessmen bought out some of Shenkarow's minority
partners...and that they, Shenkarow, and the governments have
bought some time to see what the new collective agreement with
the players looks like...if it doesn't hold the prospect of
curtailing salary increases to some extent, the franchise will
be toast...unless Axworthy throws a lot of federal money at it.

Quebec separation is hurting the Nordiques chances of survival...
because without the 2002 Winter Olympics, which they are relying
on to get the feds to pay for most of a new building, their
franchise is toast also...and a PQ victory in the fall is going
to guarentee that Salt Lake City gets the 2002 Winter Olympics,
and not Quebec.

The Oiler deal is almost almost almost done...

-- Well good.....I missed that in the paper...last I'd heard (when I wrote
above comment) was the premier saying...nope, no money...tough.....pleased
that things are looking up....
