Farewell One Great City
Posted on September 5, 2008
Today, Winnipeg bids farewell to its slogan, "One Great City." Mayor Sam Katz unveiled the new slogan, "Heart of the Continent."
Will this impact The Weakerthans' beloved song, "One Great City?" The band's songwriter and lead vocalist, John K. Samson, made his own suggestions for a new slogan back in July but I haven't managed to uncover any indications that The Weakerthans might change their song title.
Mind you, people in Texas and Seattle might not get the title's reference, but they sure do sing along.
