Manitoba's economy is the most stable in Canada.
That's according to a report from BMO, which credits our diverse industries led by strong growth in manufacturing and services.
The report also highlights our strong transportation industry and a weak U.S. dollar, both of which are contributing to steady growth in Manitoba.
They're here and they aren't going anywhere.
Zebra mussels are already in three Manitoba waterways and are spreading at an incredible rate, which is one huge concern for Manitoba Hydro. "They proliferate exponentially so they can really take over an ecosystem, and they attach to any hard surfaces including one another," said Marcus Smith, senior environmental specialist with Manitoba Hydro. "So for mechanical systems, that's our primary concern here."
Winnipeggers got their first look at the proposed Waverley underpass at an open house recently.
The $155 million underpass, slated to be completed in 2019, aims to eliminate long traffic lineups at railway crossings on Waverley Street and Taylor Avenue. Lindenwoods resident David Chickoine was one of the community members who attended the meeting. He's expecting the project to cause major disruptions, but said it's worth it.
A Toronto-based clean-tech start-up is redefining the lightbulb with wall-mounted, colour-changing LED panels you can control with your smartphone.
It's called the Nanoleaf Aurora, and it looks like the sort of thing you'd find pulsing on the wall of a nightclub — or a space station.
"The way that we think about lighting is still so old fashioned," CEO Gimmy Chu told CTV Toronto. "(This is) sort of like Lego for lights."
The University of Victoria has reeled in funding to support research into the potential of ocean waves to generate clean, renewable and affordable electricity.
The province is providing $150,000 from the Innovative Clean Energy Fund to the West Coast Wave Initiative at UVic.
"Canada has huge wave-energy potential and British Columbia has some of the best wave resources," said Elisa Obermann, executive director of Marine Renewables Canada.
