NEEPAWA, Man. — Our roads are in shambles and Manitobans are concerned about cutbacks to health care, yet last month, the provincial government announced that it is writing off $82 million in loans to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The loans are related to the construction of the Bombers’ new stadium, Investors Group Field, and are part of a saga that has been filled with nothing but bad news for taxpayers.
The Salvation Army’s annual Toy Mountain campaign kicks off early this year with support from the Winnipeg police, Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service, Retired Firefighters Association, and the Blue Bombers.
