The Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce plan to launch a new campaign to get the city to feel good about itself.

"We Believe in Winnipeg" will see a series of stories about successes in the city run over several months, beginning on April 12.

"We need to keep reminding ourselves we live in one of the best places on Earth," Free Press co-owner Bob Silver told a business audience at a breakfast this morning.

The effort is not a marketing campaign, said chamber president Dave Angus.

Similar campaigns in the past included Love Me, Love My Winnipeg in the 1980s and 100 Reasons to Love Winnipeg in the 1990s.

Silver and Angus said Winnipeg needs to get over its inferiority complex and do a better job of trumpeting its success stories.
