Greg Rickford, MP-Kenora announced an investment to help Red Lake diversify and strengthen the regional economy.
The FedNor of $84,008 will enable the Municipality of Red Lake to support two tourism-related initiatives. Of the total, $45,000 will be used to conduct an engineering study for the development of a multi-community trail network that would link Balmertown, Red Lake, Cochenour, Madsen and Starratt-Olsen. The remaining $39,008 will assist the city to upgrade its community docks, which serve as a focal point for community and angling events that draw visits to the area. http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?nid=918519
