Harper announces new National Research Council facility for Winnipeg

After laying off hundreds of scientists and staff in Winnipeg, Harper offers a pre-election bribe of a "new national lab." I have not found any details on this. Presumably they will come out in drips as further "announcements" to keep the Harper brand in the news.

No other details have yet been provided for the new facility, including where it will be or how much it will cost.

In 2012 the federal government laid off at least one-third of the research staff at the NRC in Winnipeg, and announced plans to sell the two buildings at 435 and 445 Ellice Avenue.
