The Thompson Local News


The President of the Manitoba Federation of Labour says that the Pallister Government is failing working families here in Thompson. 

 

Kevin Rebeck spoke to Arctic Radio News during a recent visit to Thompson, and said that he is extremely disappointed by the “deafening sound” coming from the Province on the job situation here in northern Manitoba. 

 

Rebeck said that the Mining Community Reserve Fund was set up for situations like Thompson is facing, but that the Pallister Government isn’t prepared to invest in the community. He added that the community at large is being impacted by the loss of good jobs, and that Thompson needs strong voices speaking out and calling for action.  

 

When asked about the Province’s response to the job situation, namely the ‘Look North’ initiative, Rebeck said that tourism can be a component of a solution, but that it can’t be the only one. He added that there is a lot to focus on a do to try and mend the situation, and that the Premier and his government are failing the City of Thompson. 

 

The elected head of the MFL also took time to address the Greyhound situation, saying that it’s a “disgrace that the government can write off $82M for a football stadium but are unwilling to ensure safe transportation for those living in remote communities”.  

 

The Manitoba Federation of Labour acts as the province’s central labour body and represents the interests of unions here in Manitoba affiliated with the Canadian Labour Congress.
