It's not business as usual in Portage la Prairie. Flooding in Manitoba delays launch of 13th ThirdQuarter pilot.
It's not business as usual in Portage la Prairie.
On May 9, the Manitoba government declared a state of emergency for numerous areas across the province, including the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie, which is threatened by high water in the Assiniboine River.
ThirdQuarter has cancelled the May 20 launch of its 13th pilot in the city of Portage la Prairie, located about 80 kilometres west of Winnipeg.
"We certainly understand the focus of residents in Portage la Prairie is on the flood situation," said Graham Starmer, executive director of the ThirdQuarter project and president of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce.
"We hope circumstances improve and residents can get back to normal activities as soon as possible."
A new strategy for the launch will be announced shortly.
