Flin Flon MLA Clarence Pettersen says last week’s provincial budget invests in training education opportunities so our kids can stay and work in Manitoba, in strong growth and jobs and in roads and infrastructure including in the north. He says as you can see they are moving on work on number ten highway near Flin Flon plus they have other roads in this constituency like from Snow Lake to number ten and from Thompson all the way to Lynn Lake which are investment projects they are working on there.
Pettersen adds the budget helps keep health care strong with plans still developing for the new emergency room at the Flin Flon General Hospital. He says he particularly likes the increase to 75 percent of median market rent in the rental assistance plan that provides employment and income assistance recipients with assistance with their shelter and utility costs. He concludes there’s something for everybody in the budget.
