Manitoba government injects funds into UNESCO bid

CBC News – The Manitoba government is investing $531,000 in a bid to have an area on the east side of Lake Winnipeg declared a UNESCO world heritage site. The money will go to pay staff to prepare land use studies and do community consultations in the area, Conservation Minister Stan Struthers said. Four First Nations have been working on the bid for nearly three years. Struthers said the money would help the Pimachiowin Aki Corporation — a partnership of the First Nations and the governments of Manitoba and Ontario — to prepare the nomination document and video.
