MPPCOA – Parks Joint Meeting

Posted on: February 5, 2020  |  

Members of the Manitoba Provincial Parks Cabin Owner Association (MPPCOA)  attended a Meet and Greet at the Manitoba Legislature on February 3rd, 2020.

MPPCOA reports that the meeting went quite well.  It began on time and the format was informal and flexible enough to present what the committee had prepared.

Bruce Alexander, Chair, MPPCOA Advisory Committee on Cottage Fees provided a “kit” including MPPCOA’s full presentation and handouts including a list of MPPCOA Executive Council members and the Guiding Principles.

The Minister, Deputy Minister, Assistant DM, and Rob N., Director of Parks received the information warmly. It is apparent that “the lines of communication” are now open with the Minister and vice versa.

The Minister agreed and complimented the MPPCOA delegates for the thorough presentation.

Bruce Alexander suggested that this consultation exercise is a marathon, not a sprint.
