That is why the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development, today announced funding of $11.2 million for FlexNetworks to bring new or improved high-speed Internet access and capacity to 21 rural communities in Saskatchewan.
