To find a better lake
Winnipeg Free Press
To look at Lake Winnipeg right now, it's as frozen over as Pluto. The lake at this time of year is mostly forgotten except for the odd snowmobiler and fisher's ice shack. And for the province's Clean Environment Commission.

Winnipeg at the tipping point
Winnipeg Free Press
The news that next year Manitoba will outdo nine of the 10 provinces in the barometer for economic health, the gross national product, was exciting but only confirmed what many of us have been witnessing for a long time. Manitoba has changed. The Conference Board of Canada is forecasting a 2.9 per cent increase in Manitoba's GDP this year, well ahead of the national pace of 1.9 per cent and second only to British Columbia.

Seven Oaks Arena will be revolutionary for Winnipeg
Winnipeg Sun
Roger Tuk doubts there was much consideration for energy efficiency when most of Winnipeg's rinks were built in the 1960s and 1970s, which is one of the many reasons the new Seven Oaks Arena will be such a welcomed — and long overdue — addition to the amateur sports community. Spectators at the new two-rink facility won't have to cram into designated areas under tiny heaters that may or may not be on as Seven Oaks will have "a nice ambient temperature" throughout, said Tuk, the construction chair on the board of the Garden City Community Centre.

Winter not kind to solar energy production
Kingston Whig
Energy output of solar panels during winter months is greatly reduced due to shorter days. Heaps of snow translate into less energy derived from solar panels. Even small amounts of snow lay bare the consequences of less power generated, collected and sold. This ultimately makes it difficult for those living in the northern hemisphere to reap the benefits of solar energy.
