I was in Winnipeg for three days over the past week. I met some phenomenal entrepreneurs while teaching a marketing class. One of the things that amazed me was how little they knew about our province as their neighbor. They didn’t know that most of the world’s uranium comes from our north. They didn’t know that our unemployment rate is so low that businesses have given up marketing products and services and are marketing themselves as great employers. They didn’t know that the increased price of wheat will make this Christmas a very merry one across the prairies.
I told the stories of prosperity and wealth. I told stories of our amazing entrepreneurs. They were shocked! Have we got such a beaten down, Depression mentality that our counterparts around the country can’t even think of us as a leading economy?
Why not us?
