At the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting Tuesday President Karen MacKinnon began the second year of her two year term. She says as a Chamber this is one of the most important times in our history with the economic uncertainty we have in our region. She believes more than ever Chamber members have to work together with our municipalities, our surrounding First Nations communities, the Manitoba and Saskatchewan Chambers of Commerce, the Provincial and Federal governments and most of all with the whole North. She adds if we all work together we will come up with some positive solutions for not only our region but also northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan as a whole. She says we have to show that northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan have many opportunities just waiting to be discovered and is a great place to do business.
MacKinnon adds she was recently in Cape Breton Island which faced many setbacks over the years but not only prevails but has blossomed by diversifying and citizens working together.
