Canada’s Governor General Julie Payette is in Flin Flon for Culture Days. During a visit to Hapnot Collegiate yesterday she said she is amazed at the beauty of our area. She says she has seen it from space before because whenever she could spend a few minutes to pass over Canada she did from a spaceship and what is really amazing about the northern part of Manitoba and the northern part of Ontario is the number of lakes, its peppered with lake and forests, lake and forests and lakes and forests and of course the big lakes Winnipeg, Manitoba and Winnipegosis are absolutely stunning from space and now here she is visiting on the ground and it’s just as beautiful.
Payette says we are very lucky to live here and we are lucky to live in Canada which is a country where it doesn’t matter what you want to be it’s a place where you can accomplish it.
She presented Hapnot Principal Steve Lytwyn with a picture of Manitoba taken from space.
