The Thompson Local News


Mayor Fenske’s words at City Council earlier this week did not fall on deaf ears.

 

Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey spoke in the legislature Wednesday, and asked the Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade why the Pallister Government is not doing anything to help despite the economic challenges Thompson is facing.

 

Minister Pedersen responded by saying that this “new-found concern for the north and Thompson is another sign of the lack of integrity of the NDP”; the later part of the statement being a message that members of the PC caucus have been bringing up on an almost daily basis in the legislature.

 

The Minister added that the NDP “did nothing other than discourage mining and chase away businesses from the north” while they were in power for almost two decades.

 

Lindsey asked a follow-up question to Minister Pedersen, asking if he would help set up a fund to help with training in Thompson, citing comments made by Mayor Fenske earlier this week.

 

The Minister responded by talking about the Look North initiative instead of directly addressing the question.
