At yesterday’s Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce meeting Karen MacKinnon asked the Chamber of lobby on behalf of the community for improved internet service. She says there are problems with the internet here and was told the best way to improve it is using fiber optics. She says it has been installed in communities across the province including The Pas and Thompson and asked the Chamber to lobby MTS to get fiber optics into Flin Flon. Members agreed to contact MTS and find out why Flin Flon has been left out and how we can get fiber optics.
Discussion was also held on gas prices and why they are lower in The Pas than Flin Flon. Dave Kendall says he understands that suppliers tell the local stations where to set their prices. He added there is also more competition in The Pas. He said the price is not set by the local dealers.
