A University of Manitoba dean says that as Northern Manitoba deals with an ongoing economic crisis, The Pas should recover while Churchill will likely face a “crisis,” reports CBC. Asper School of Business Dean Michael Benarroch says that The Pas’ diversified economy will help it attract new investments and developments that should shepherd it through difficult times, while Churchill’s geographic isolation makes the community a difficult target for development, even with government support. “I think other than the tourism industry, there's not a lot there. I think the people there are quite resourceful, there's a greenhouse and a few little things like that, but it's very difficult in Churchill,” Bennarcoch said. CBC
