Lake Manitoba flood victims meet today

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 1/6/2011 (2272 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Residents, cottagers and farmers from the Lake Manitoba area are meeting today to demand that the province provide a permanent solution to the flood-related damages suffered in recent years.

The meeting takes place at 2 p.m. at Langruth Hall.

"The mismanagement of Lake Manitoba by the provincial government has gone on far too long and we have left it far too long," said Langruth resident Joe Johnson, adding that he has 580 acres of lakefront property but has not been able to use any of it since 1995.

Jonas and the meeting's other organizers says decisions made by the province to flow additional water into Lake Manitoba without providing an adequate outlet is consuming residents' lands and destroying livelihoods.

Johnson said today's meeting will also serve as the launch of a new organization that will advocate for changes in the way Lake Manitoba is managed.
