Non-Democratic Party Insults Landowners

My wife and I along with over 100 other farmers and landowners had a crash course on how democracy works within the walls of the Manitoba legislature under the NDP regime.

We attended a legislative committee meeting regarding Manitoba Hydro projects on Oct. 25.

Finance Minister Rosanne Wowchuk and other NDP committee members argued for close to an hour, so they would not have to hear a 10-minute presentation from former Hydro chairman and CEO Len Bateman regarding the Bipole III project, as well as a five-minute presentation from a local farmer representing the voices of all farmers who will be affected. They also refused an invitation to have a public meeting regarding the $1.75 billion option of going the west route and affecting 1,350 landowners unnecessarily.
