I bet it happens to you all the time! You bump into a lighting person at the
theatre or crowded restaurant and they're the ones looking up at the ceiling
instead of where they are going. They are fascinated by the lighting only!
Another thing lighting people have in common are the tales of discovery.
Most people tell you that they caught the lighting bug quite by accident and
can often be heard retelling stories to our colleagues about how they first
entered into this dynamic industry. The ED50 introductory course is an exciting opportunity to help start a new
generation of "lighting people."

The Manitoba government has created a steering committee to boost the economy outside the city of Winnipeg.

Kostyshyn said Manitoba's rural economy isn't struggling or contracting right now, but the committee will look at ways and means to build upon rural strengths and opportunities.
