A New Support for Struggling Mining Communities is Being Proposed.

In Flin Flon yesterday Premier Brian Pallister said if re-elected they will replace the Mining Community Reserve Fund with the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund.  He said the government will invest a 20 million dollar base and it will be managed by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce while the government focuses on jobs and partnerships.  He explained where they’ll have their involvement is working with First Nations communities on protocols, promoting and encouraging exploration and prospecting, trying to encourage with the existing advantages we have as besides the raw materials we have also able renowned workforce people in our province with the reputation for good work ethic, ready to learn, to be trained and they’re setting up partnerships to do that.

             

Pallister adds the change will make the fund sustainable so it will be there when needed.
