Manitoba Liberals Will Connect the North




August 29, 2019


WINNIPEG  - Manitoba Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont announced today his party’s plan for connecting the North by ensuring all Northern Manitoba communities have access to High Speed Internet and cell phone coverage within three years. Manitoba Liberals will invest in upgrading Northern infrastructure to create jobs and make life more affordable for Northerners. 


“The North has been a huge source of energy and resources for all Manitoba, but while the benefits flow south, people in the north face steep costs,” said Lamont. “Northern Manitoba and its people have tremendous potential. We must ensure that Northerners share in the benefits from their land.”


Lamont said it is appalling that Flin Flon still does not have access to High Speed Internet and that cell service is not only bad — it has gotten worse over the years.
