Manitoba Lieutenant Governor Janice Filmon and the Honorable Gary Filmon are visiting Flin Flon for Culture Days. Yesterday they visited Hapnot Collegiate Culture Days. Filmon says she is really impressed with how dedicated people here are to leadership and building a community. She says you look at all the things you’ve got going in this community and they’ve been in The Pas and Cranberry Portage and she thinks that singularly the leadership that she sees of individuals who’ve come forward with whatever their idea was or passion and then they’ve been able to build a team around themselves and get it done is really outstanding and she can’t wait to get back to tell everyone how beautiful it is and what amazing people she has met.
Filmon added she is really impressed with the pride and passion people she’s meeting here have for this community both those born and raised here and those who have moved here and stayed.
