In an email, concerning the hog Industry, Manitoba's Sustainable Development Minister, Rochelle Squires, called the previous manure treatment system “unnecessary, elaborate and costly” and said the province maintains “strong environmental protection and enforcement” without it.
That is quite a statement from an individual with a background of journalism and master of fine arts, and who only
'very recently' was appointed to her present position.
So…. once again, the hog Industry has a benefactor, who is in lock-step with the pork factory producers.
Why can't Manitoban's and Canada have a minister dedicated to the needs of protecting our waters and environment?
Someone with the fortitude, determination and integrity to do what is needed and must be done. We don't need or want puppets for this responsibility.
Where are the Erin Brockovich's in Canada?
