Manitoba's inflation rate falls in June
Inflationary pressures continued to ease last month in Manitoba, with the province's annual inflation rate falling to 1.5 per cent from 1.9 per cent in June.
That's one of the lowest provincial inflation rates in the country, second only to B.C.'s 1.4 per cent, Statistics Canada data shows.
It's also more than a half a percentage point below the national of 2.1 per cent, and down more than a full percentage point from May, when it was 2.6 per cent.

Ontario talks hydro trade with Quebec and Manitoba
Ontario's energy minister says he has held direct talks with his counterparts from Quebec and Manitoba about importing more electricity into Ontario.

Chiarelli made the comments at the annual meeting of federal and provincial energy and mines ministers, which wrapped up recently in Sudbury.
He said the one-on-one meetings with Quebec and Manitoba officials during the federal-provincial conference were useful.

Sudbury's floating solar panels could power island nation
Early next year, Sudbury-developed clean energy technology is expected to be tested off the coast of Malta, a small European island nation in the Mediterranean Sea.
Kim Trapani, a Mining Innovation, Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corporation (MIRARCO) researcher who is originally from Malta, worked on light flexible solar panels that can float on any body of water.
Malta is one of the world's smallest countries. Its entire landmass is 316 square kilometres, about one-tenth the size of Greater Sudbury.
