Winnipeg Free Press
Imagine a Winnipeg that could build the Union Bank Tower, Canada's first skyscraper, the nation's tallest building, crowned with the British Commonwealth's highest flagpole. Imagine a Winnipeg that could have more construction in a single year than Toronto and Montreal combined. The Winnipeg of 1904 optimistically pushed skyward with every new building, marking its place on the world stage with its towers, just as developing cities such as Dubai and Shanghai do today.

Science Daily
Converting sunshine into electricity is not difficult, but doing so efficiently and on a large scale is one of the reasons why people still rely on the electric grid and not a national solar cell network.

Winnipeg Free Press
Manitoba Hydro, pressured by the provincial government, continues to spend and make commitments for its $22 billion "preferred development plan."
