Stubb Ross, president of Time Airways said he will make an immediate appeal to Transport Minister Don Jamie- son. A letter of protest will also be sent from Grande Prairie. j "It appears it was a foolish move" on the part ol the trans- port commission, said Mr. Ross.

He suggested ihe city put in a formal request to the Alberta Housing Corpora- tion for assistance in purchas- ing land downtown. Aid. Barnes made no specific reference to using such land for an arena. He did, however, mention there are "two large commercial firms interested in coining to Lethbridge." Aid. Vera Ferguson suggest- ed land assembly money should be in the capital budget. "The city should be looking to pro- iect its base of the downtown area, Aid. Ferguson said. The question is one of priori- lies. "Because of a small inter- est group, we could bo stamped- ed into .something like lha arena." Aid. Ferguson said.
