It may have been the worst-kept secret of the 2014 mayoral campaign: Mark Chipman is in Brian Bowman’s corner.
The executive chairman of True North Sports and Entertainment made his support for Bowman official today, with a formal announcement on Bowman’s website.
"Brian Bowman is the breath of fresh air our city needs right now," Chipman says in a statement. "I am proud to offer my support for his candidacy as Winnipeg’s next mayor."
Chipman’s endorsement was all but certain at the end of June, when he co-hosted a closed-door fundraising reception event at the MTS Centre.
On Monday, mayoral candidate Gord Steeves began the week’s campaigning with an endorsement from Coun. Scott Fielding.
