Parks are for nature, not profit


Hi Pam,

Our provincial parks need your love and attention like never before.

The Manitoba government is looking for ways to privatize and divest from provincial parks at a time when we need them most. This Request for Proposal is asking a consultant to examine 76 Manitoba provincial parks and build a business case for parks while examining privatization and divestment — and building amusement parks.

Parks are not a business model.

Write now to protect our parks!
Divesting, privatizing, monetizing parks is a dereliction of duty from Premier Brian Pallister’s Progressive Conservative government. And hiring a consultant to do it, while axing the staff in Manitoba’s Conservation and Climate Department who know how parks need to be expanded is incredibly insulting and demoralizing.

This is the worst idea I have seen in my 16 years with the Wilderness Committee. In fact, this is the first time since the Manitoba government signed on to an international agreement to protect nature and biodiversity in 1992 that we are actively moving away from that goal.

Our parks have taken care of us during a time of profound need: the COVID-19 pandemic and our physically-distanced summer. And we’ll rely heavily on them next summer too. This is just one of the many benefits of having parks. Parks help the climate, preserve biodiversity, and keep us healthy — all for very little cost or effort. 
Write Now!
Please write a letter right now to protect our parks. Manitobans do not want privatization. We want increased staffing, increased funding, increased services and more parks. This is the future that scientists tell us we need. Let’s not deny parks the care they need. 
 
For the wild,
 

Another Sunday morning, another mess to clean up behind the clubhouse. I've asking the city if the table and bench from there could be removed or, failing that, a camera installed at that location. This is getting really upsetting having to clean up all the time and now, no bin at that location.

Hi all. The benches located in front of the clubhouse have been returned all refurbished. Also, we have new picnic tables around and the benches have had soon boards replaced. I was told by the crew that there is an anniversary planned for the park. I don't have any information on that so I've written the parks people about it but no response yet. 

On the down side the garbage cans have been picked up so I am suppling orange bags again and breaking out the LMP Honey Wagon. Please, don't just toss the bags into the bush.

We had a pod cast done about the park, the hauntings around LMP and my web site back in 2019. I have expressed my desire to do a follow-up interview with them. It was fun to listen to what other people say.

*Editors note, there is foul language expressed through the program so be aware.

We had a fun filled mess to clean up this morning. A group of a-holes left curried chicken, bones, broken glass and anything you wish to name in the picnic area behind the clubhouse last night. Many thanks to Ruth and Donna who helped clean it up.

Hi all. Farmers road has been opened up again. I made interesting, perhaps scary discovery, a .22 bullet on one of the trails. Also, I've asking the City if they could replace some of the picnic table top boards. They are slowly rotting away and becoming dangerous.

I finally got the city to move a bench to the small field so we'll have a place to sit. Still nothing on the bathrooms being open any time soon, except that the city does have the keys turned over to them from the contractor. The parks crew will be packing it up this weekend. The garbage cans will be rounded up once again. I've asked to be involved in the discussion on putting them in better locations for winter pick up but the city has not scene fit to respond to me. Oh well, break out the LMP honey wagon and garbage bags again! Farmers road was still cut off for the gas line installation. The north parking lot is still accessible from the Klimpke side.

 

Sunday, October 4th we had planned a visit with you for St. Francis of Assissi's Day, the Blessing of the Animals.
It seems, as of Monday, the province's pandemic response system will be elevated to "code orange.'  This
will limit gatherings inside and outside to 10 people.  Consequently, we will not be able to come this year.
We will, however, include you, your friends and those lovely dogs in our prayers next Sunday.
Take care and keep safe.
