We need to change our focus

We look at technology as good for advancing productivity while reducing costs. Already robots and sophisticated machinery are eliminating many jobs in manufacturing. Technology has eliminated many cashiers at checkouts in grocery stores and wait staff at many counters of fast food restaurants across Canada.

Deserving Respect

We are a diverse community.

Across Rainy River District, our population includes those of First Nations’ ancestry, as well as first generation people from Holland, France, England, Vietnam, and many other nations.

As a district, we have welcomed and accepted immigrants for several centuries. It has been—and continues to be—part of our culture.
