A 14-year-old has been arrested after Winnipeg police say she knocked a woman down and robbed her.
Police said Monday the victim, 22, was waiting for transportation in a building foyer in the 300 block of Portage Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. on Saturday. Suddenly, a girl pushed her from behind, knocked her to the ground and began pulling her hair.
Another teen grabbed the victim’s purse and fled the scene, while the first teen left the building and started walking down Portage Avenue.
The elimination of the Future Shop brand may be the end of an era for the once-successful Canadian retailer, but it does not foretell the end for stand-alone electronics stores, says one business expert.
Mark Satov says closing Future Shop was an “inevitable” move for Best Buy, the American company that bought the Canadian retailer in 2001.

HALIFAX – An Air Canada plane that crashed at the Halifax airport was about 335 metres short of the runway before it hit an antenna array, which ripped off its main landing gear, the Transportation Safety Board said Sunday.
The aircraft also lost one of its two engines and left a trail of debris as it skidded along the asphalt for another 335 metres early Sunday morning before it came to a stop, said Mike Cunningham, the agency’s regional manager of air investigations.

WINNIPEG – Jonathan Toews knows you don’t always have to win pretty this late in the season.
All that counts is getting the win.
Toews deflected in Niklas Hjalmarsson’s long shot with 31 seconds left in regulation as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Sunday.
“We’re going to have to win games in dramatic fashion sometimes, especially this time of year,” said Toews, who scored his 25th goal of the campaign. “They’re not going to be pretty and winning games by two or three goals, so we’re going to have to find ways to squeak them out.”

Volunteerism is at the heart of most rural Manitoba communities. Almost everything that happens in our communities does so thanks to the donation of time made by community members.
Across the region, volunteer organizations are doing lots of great things. Thinking about the activities, attractions and assets that define our communities, almost all have been done thanks, in large part, to volunteers. But in addition to those initiatives with which we are well acquainted, many organizations are working hard at projects we know nothing about.
