A storm looks like it’s heading for Winnipeg’s Richardson International Airport.  Looks like it’s going to be raining money… about 20 million dollars of it to be exact.

Winnipeg Airports Authority and Lakeview Management Inc. announced today that they will be building a new 20 million dollar luxury hotel at Winnipeg’s Richardson International Airport named The Grand Winnipeg Hotel. The hotel will start construction later this year and is expected to be completed by spring 2010.  Just in time for the opening of the airport’s new $585 million dollar terminal.
