Thursday evening, the Fort Gary Community centre hosted the federal minister for Natural Resources, Jim Carr, as he and constituents of his riding, Winnipeg South Centre, traded statistics on the LNG Pacific pipeline, jobs, economic stimulus for northern communities, the lame, tired, should be retired, left-overs Tory carbon emissions targets, development challenges in knowledge, capital, construction, communications, technology and energy grid networks in remote northern communities, the futility of playing the zero-sum fossil fuel game on a planet fighting the tick tock of the clock, the pointlessness of existence, and the fat Christmas envelop going to the award-winning and spectacular, Downtown Winnipeg Forks Market, one of the loveliest and probably almost totally subsidized, places in Winnipeg, for their Surprise Christmas Market Party. Everyone is welcome.
