The Province of Manitoba will be spending some more money in the North. Friday, Premier Greg Selinger was in The Pas to make two announcements. The first announcement was that $870,000 will be spend on new infrastructure, including the Town of the Pas receiving over $150,000 and the RM of Kelsey receiving $50,000. Selinger said it will also lead to some jobs. The province also announced a new program helping aboriginal people overcome barriers to employment and the challenges in finding and keeping good jobs in The Pas and area. The program is offered in partnership with FireSpirit and Manitoba Works.
