Looking at the pictures, one can plainly see and wonder why the hog Industries were ever allowed to develop and expand in such a flood plain area.
Could this happen in Manitoba? It already has!
The Red River area and the Interlake are perfect examples where barns were allowed .
So...Who's looking after the environment and our water ? Lake Winnipeg has the answer….Nobody…!.
It's Pigs….Politics.,,,,Poop…..and Profit , nothing else matters and government could care less.
