The Thompson Local News

The MLA for Flin Flon has been standing up for Thompson in the Legislature.


Tom Lindsey pressed Blaine Pedersen, the Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade multiple times last week about the Mining Community Reserve Fund and why Thompson was not able to access it.

Lindsey, who serves as the Manitoba NDP’s labour critic, spoke to Arctic Radio News about why it’s important for him to voice the concerns of a city, and it’s people, who aren’t in his own riding.


He said even if the topic didn’t fall under his role as labour critic, that it is still important for him to bring up as "things that affect one community in the north..chances are they’re going to affect other communities in the north".

Lindsey added that today it’s Thompson needing help, and that it could be Flin Flon asking tomorrow.


Pedersen never gave a direct answer to Lindsey’s questions; something that the Flin Flon MLA said isn’t surprising.
