Blaine Pedersen says that the north matters to Manitoba as a whole.
Pedersen, who currently serves as the Provincial Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade, spoke to Arctic Radio News on a recent visit to Thompson and said that the north has been a priority of the Pallister Government since they were elected.
Pedersen added that he has been to Thompson more in the past eight months than some communities in his own riding.
To hear part one of the three part interview with Minister Pedersen, tune in to 102.9 CHTM tomorrow afternoon at 12:40pm and again at 5:10pm.
