Manitoba's GDP growth sluggish in 2014
Winnipeg Free Press
The preliminary economic growth numbers for 2014 are out, and Manitoba didn't do so well. Statistics Canada said recently Manitoba's real gross domestic product by industry increased by only 1.1 per cent last year after a 2.3 per cent expansion in 2013. That was the third-worst performance among the provinces, and Manitoba's weakest output since the 2009 recession. It was also less than half Canada's growth rate of 2.4 per cent.

Daily Commercial News

At the same time, there is growing evidence that the impact of low energy prices is having a positive impact on activity in British Columbia as well as in Manitoba.

Scammers targeting Manitoba Hydro customers
Metro News
Manitoba Hydro is warning Winnipeggers of a group of scammers pretending to be from the utility demanding money. The scam works like this: A call originates from a toll-free number. In some cases, Manitoba Hydro's phone number also appears in the caller ID. The caller asks a few questions, then states that the customer's account is in arrears and must be paid immediately. The customer is provided with payment options, which include making a payment through a local retailer (often Safeway/Sobeys), paying through a PayPal account, wiring a cash payment via Western Union, or providing a credit card number.
