Prime Minister Harper announces $2.5M to train miners in northern Saskatchewan

AIR RONGE, Sask. - The federal government is committing $2.5 million to help train miners in northern Saskatchewan.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper made the announcement at a training college in Air Ronge (RAHNJ), a several-hour drive northeast of Prince Albert.

Northlands College will use the money to purchase and house training simulators.

The simulators, akin to flight simulators, will allow students to virtually learn how to operate heavy mining equipment and how to react to emergencies.

The college plans to recruit northern Saskatchewan residents and aboriginals for the training.

Across the street from Harper's announcement, 20 protesters held up signs urging him to do more to fight native poverty and environmental degradation. -CP-
