Many customers of another major local television service provider can expect to see partial refunds on an upcoming invoice.Verizon FiOS is the latest to announce a credit from Regional Sports Network fees, although they didn’t say how much customers should expect. Comcast Xfinity announced similar refunds in October. Those credits averaged about $4.

While many Manitobans have had to adjust to the COVID-19 lockdown, some of the province’s most vulnerable citizens have lost social opportunities and access to resources, members of a Winnipeg community ministry say.
In West Broadway, many community organizations have had to adjust their services since March, including the West Broadway Community Ministry.

“It was a place where people go laugh, play cards. Some would have … a knitting group going on, and we have a seniors’ group going,
