Hey there, time traveller!

On Tuesday, June 23, members of the Manitoba BiPole Landowners Committee (MBLC) travelled to the Manitoba legislature to bring their concerns about the impact the BiPole III project will have on their family farms.
Instead of acknowledging the MBLC members, Ron Kostyshyn, NDP minister of agriculture and MLA for Swan River, stared at the floor and refused to even acknowledge their presence in the chamber gallery. Multiple requests for a meeting were ignored and the minister ran off before the members could speak with him.
This is a shameful attitude, and it highlights the NDP government’s disrespect for all Manitobans and for the environmental stewardship of agricultural producers across this beautiful province.
After saying in January he would meet with the MBLC members “very soon,” Kostyshyn has still not done so.
Citizens of Manitoba have a right to be heard. They’re tired of the NDP’s broken promises and want a change for the better. With Manitobans’ help, a change for the better is coming.
