But such is the case as General Motors and Ford have recently announced their participation with several other car companies in a new pilot program designed to make it easier for electric vehicles to communicate with utility companies. The goal is to make charging less stressful on the power grid and the best way to do that is to communicate via the cloud.

Winnipeg in a building boom
Winnipeg Sun
If you gauge the growth of a city by its construction activity, Winnipeg is booming. The city has been enjoying a steady rate of improvement the last few years, particularly building new condos and apartment buildings. "The value of construction and number of units added have been on the rise, and the permits worth at least $1 million that were approved in 2014 show that more big things are on the way."

City data: Traffic signals are improving, but lots of work still to be done
Winnipeg Free Press
Last time the skies opened up, courier Paul Katik knew what to expect — traffic lights out all over the city causing jams at intersections, driver confusion and delayed deliveries. "It happens a lot, especially after it rains heavily or when it snows," said Katik, the owner of Slingshot Courier. Last year, Winnipeg's traffic signals malfunctioned 3,100 times. That's a lot, an average of eight trouble calls a day, but it's a huge improvement over past years.

Group: Winnipeg drivers unfairly ticketed in construction zones
CBC News
A lack of proper signage at road construction zones means drivers are being unfairly ticketed in those areas, according to a Winnipeg anti-photo-radar group. The Manitoba government recently doubled the fines for speeding in designated construction zones, as well as made it mandatory to obey lower speed limits in those zones regardless of whether workers are present or not.
