We Need your Support!

The Whiteshell Cottagers Association is committed to defend the interests of all Whiteshell Cottage Owners, and is making a concerted effort to reduce the heavy financial burden being created by the government’s planned park fee and lease rate increases. To achieve our objectives, we very much want to ensure full cottager participation in the WCA. To reach our goal of greater than 90% participation, we are asking that you PLEASE RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP NOW, if you haven’t already done so; or if you are not a current member, we are urging you to PLEASE JOIN NOW.

President’s Report

I want to begin this report with a tribute to a friend and cottager who tragically died of cancer a few short weeks ago. Warren Froese was a fine orthopedic surgeon, a humanitarian and family man of great character. He loved the Whiteshell Park, and in his last days amazingly found time and energy to defend the fragile nature around him from the ill-advised wastewater treatment project at Brereton Lake. His report in the Echo of August 2014, two short months before his death, with its call to arms to all Whiteshell Cottagers, is a fitting tribute to this fine man. We extend our deepest sympathy to Warren’s family and commit to carrying his banner of good works forward. Warren urged us all to follow his lead and be involved with the Cottager’s Association to protect the Whiteshell.

Join the WCA

Despite all of the excitement over the Ministry’s high handed and arbitrary management in the Park, we have been underwhelmed by cottagers’ willingness to join the organization and support our campaign. While we are encouraged to hear supporting comments from many cottagers and friends … ”keep up the good work, we really appreciate what your association is doing for us,” “thanks for stating the case for cottagers,” etc., etc. But the hard metric of paid up memberships reveal more of a story of apathy. Is this a sign of the boiled frog syndro

me that I described in the last Echo? I hope not.
