Part Three of The Current
Premier Greg Selinger
The man saddled with some of the toughest decisions in this water-logged province is Greg Selinger, the Premier of Manitoba. He was in our Winnipeg studio.
Lake Manitoba Flooding - Diane Price
As we've just heard from the Premier, it's not just the south of the province that is experiencing flooding. People living in the Interlake region north of Winnipeg are seeing the water rise as well. Eric Olson is a cattle farmer on the north end of Lake Manitoba on a Peninsula called Peonan Point. We heard from him.
Diane Price is the Reeve for the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale. That covers an area on the east side of Lake Manitoba, about two hours north of Winnipeg. She was in Moosehorn.
Last Word - Sandbagging
Over the weekend hundreds of Manitobans volunteered their time to help out with flood relief efforts. Our producer Kristin Nelson caught up with a few of them at a sand bagging centre near Portage La Prairie. We ended the program with the sound of that today.
