Makeover Madness


Manitoba has a new slogan and logo that will no doubt bring back the thousands of people who have left and put a stop to all of those that plan on leaving. If you believe any of that, I have a bridge to sell you!

The branding Manitoba campaign was launched yesterday and the best slogan the New York ad firm Interbrand could come up with was "Spirited Energy." In total, the entire re-branding exercise cost $2.1 million, only $500,000 of that coming from the private sector.

The challenges Manitoba has cannot be fixed with a coat of paint, a long-term economic plan to lower taxes, cut waste and become business friendly are what will attract and retain people.

Coat of paint?

This is more like a bumper sticker on a rust bucket.

At least the good folks of Manitoba had the good sense to throw the corrupt crooked Conservatives out on their arse. The economy of Manitoba is still reeling from Filmon's idiotic ideology and government. Good for Doer to try and undo the bad image the Conservatives brought to that great province!

Yeah, good for Doer for attempting to fix a gunshot wound with a band-aid. That's a politician Leftdog can support!

He used a band-aid?

I thought it was a chain saw.
