World Wide Web CANADA POST SALES AGREEMENT NO 0563595 Recycled newsprint is used in the production of this newspaper When the sun rose yesterday morning, residents of Fort Whyte could still see a few firefighters dousing the smouldering remains of the elevator. Police said pilots on inbound flights to Winnipeg reported seeing the fire from 35 kilometres out. Black said the 911 switchboard was lit up as Win-nipeggers across the city phoned in the fire. The first call came in at 2:23 a.m. “Flames were shooting out the top 30 to 40 feet,” said Brent Glesby, who lives on nearby Invermere Street. Glesby watched the blaze from the second storey of his home. He said the winds were blowing the sparks east of the housing area near the grain elevator. Leigh Young was a little closer to the action. He’s one of the owners of To-Le-Do Food Services, a food wholesaler located adjacent to the grain elevator. Young said police alerted him about the fire and he drove over. “I could feel the heat all the way up to Whyte Ridge,” he said of the nearby residential community. Young said firefighters kept spraying water on his building and it was barely touched by the nearby inferno. He said if firefighters hadn’t cooled his building down, the heat from the elevator would have sent his business up in flames. “Lucky for us they were there," said Young. He said firefighters told him the fire began about I a.m. Young said the entire structure burned completely to the ground in just four hours. David Coolen also watched the familiar grain elevator burn to the ground. “I heard an explosion ... that’s what KEITH PLACE WINNIPEG FREE PRESS Blaze rips through elevator at McGillivray Blvd. and Kenaston Blvd. early yesterday morning. woke me up. It was an unbelievable fire,” said Coolen. He said the explosion happened about 2:15 and he heard sirens about five minutes later. Black said the last of the firefighters left the scene at 4 p.m. He said a backhoe was brought in at one point to turn over the debris because struc tural steel had collapsed on burning embers. The fire commissioner was still on the scene yesterday afternoon continuing the investigation. Coolen said this was one elevator that went down quickly. “It didn’t take long to bum,” he said. He said it was unfortunate because the Toss away old Tory loyalties and oust Grits, Day tells rally Alliance leadership hopeful delivers election-style attack on Liberals By Colin Perkel Canadian Press WATERLOO, Ont. - Federal Conservatives must leave aside their old, emotional attachments and join the new Canadian, Alliance if they hope to defeat the Liberal government, Alberta Treasurer Stockwell Day said yesterday. In his first foray into Ontario as an alliance leadership candidate, Day at times sounded like he was already running in a federal election as he tore into the government of Prime Minister Jean Chretien. “There is growing dissatisfaction for what is at the federal level,” Day told about IOO young Ontario Tories at a motel in this southwestern Ontario town. “The system itself is creating dissatisfaction and discouragement.” He attacked the billion-dollar “fiasco” in the federal Human Resource Development Corp., and switched to French to mock Chretien’s response to the issue as amounting to a shrug. “I see it as just the tip of an iceberg that has punctured the hull of the Liberal Titanic and as that ship takes on water, we’re seeing disarray on the decks of management." The problem, he said, is that vote-splitting between the Tory and Reform parties has allowed Liberal candidates "to stagger up the middle.” The answer, he told the crowd, is the new alliance, which must still be formally approved by a Reform party referendum later this month. If the Canadian Alliance is approved, members will begin voting for a new leader, who will be elected by the end of June. Day’s unite-the-right message appeared to find fertile ground. “This is a lot more ideologically where I lean,” said Barbara Campbell, 21, a provincial Tory at the University of Western Ontario. "I don’t think (Tory Leader) Joe Clark and the Conservative party exemplify conservative principles.” While many people wore buttons supporting Day, others hedged their bets on who they would vote for to lead the new party. But Campbell was adamant she wouldn’t support Reform Leader Preston Manning, who said Thursday he would give up his duties as official Opposition leader to run for the alliance’s top job. “You can’t have Preston Manning and say it’s a different party. They aren’t going to buy it. It’s not going to sell across the country.” But one young woman, who asked not to be named, said she wasn’t interested in the alliance, a view that appeared to be in the minority at the gathering. “We already have an alternative to the Liberals and that’s the Progressive Conservative party,” she said. In his speech, Day, 49, characterized himself as a fiscal manager with a proven track record and someone who understands Canadians wherever they are. His roots in small-town Ontario have spread through his growing and working years throughout the country, including Quebec, giving him a genuine national perspective on the country, he said. elevator had recently been renovated. Brian Hayward, CEO of UGG, confirmed the company was fixing up the structure. “We were just renovating —we were really close to being finished,’’ he said. Hayward said the elevator wasn’t in use while being renovated. Winnipegger / continued from Page A1 In 1997, she was nominated for best new solo artist on the heels of her debut CD, Under These Rocks And Stones, but lost out to country singer Terri Clark. Under These Rocks And Stones sold more than 200,000 copies worldwide. Colour Moving And Still has sold 150.000 copies in Canada alone since its release in September 1999 and comes out in the United States within weeks. Kreviazuk, who now lives in Toronto, married Our Lady Peace frontman Raine Maida in December. His band went zero-for-two last night, losing out to the Matthew Good Band in the best rock album category and bowing to Winnipeg-born pop singer Tai Bachman in the best producer slot. Bachman was the big winner of the night, picking up two awards. But Kreviazuk was the only bona fide Winnipegger to pick up a prize — all five other Manitoban nominees, including double-nominees Thra Lyn Hart and Glenn Buhr, went home empty-handed.
