MPPCOA Meeting with Minister Squires

Posted on: October 23, 2017  |  

On Friday afternoon, October 13th, the Manitoba Provincial Parks Cabin Owners Association were invited to a Meet and Greet with the new Minister of Sustainable Development, Honourable Rochelle Squires. The 45 minute meeting was highlighted by the new Minister being briefed on the history of MPPCOA – a Strategic Coalition of now six Cottage Owner Associations in Manitoba Provincial Parks which was formed in 2016 in response to the Provincial Governments drastic and unaccountable plan to increase cottage owner service and lease fees. The objective of the Coalition was to present a Single Voice in consultations with the Provincial Officials.  

Our Association was impressed that Minister Squires was very prepared, had been thoroughly briefed and was most open and articulate. 

Minister Squires commented that when the drastic increase was made public, the leader of the Provincial Conservative Party, Brian Pallister, was concerned about the impact the proposed dramatic fee increase might entail for many cottage owners. It seemed very clear from the Minister comments that the present government is intent upon sincere consultations with cottage owners to work out a win-win financial arrangement that is fair to both sides.
