Manitoba Time... uh no Manitoba: Glorious and Free
Travel Manitoba is about to unveil a $2 million marketing campaign.
The slogan will be "Manitoba Time".
You have to wonder if anyone thought about the built in jokes such a slogan will have. Miller Time and Hammer Time come to mind.
I have a suggestion that goes old school. Glorious and Free. It is right on our coat of arms. It say a lot. It means a lot. It represents Manitoba and doesn't seem to be manufactured by some test audience somewhere.
It seems we spend a lot of spirited energy trying to convey something to others about our province.
Why not stick to something that has worked a long time.
