Read it, spread it and send some feedback. You have one week.

Hmmm, I must be ahead of things, I thought this was already in effect. Didn't know about Ducks part though, pretty costly to drain larger sloughs. We only do minor surface work, so guess that's why I didn't know about this.


It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Terminology is "approved organization", but DU will surely be on the list. You would be surprised how minor work can be deemed major when the gov't gets involved.

Any sort of transparency doesn't fit with the communist CO-OP agenda...

Thanks for the links!

Talk about sickening, giving money to those idiots to be able to use our own land!
Changes to 3 diff pieces of legislation have been in the works for quite some time. Approx 18 months ago their was a public consultation into what changes /amendments should be made. This covered drainage regs, Conservation Districts and watersheds and an ALUS program if I remember correctly. Now this is the public consultation on the final document.

The proposed chges in so far as wetlands drainage are not new. Thru the licensing process getting a license to drain a permanent wetland would be difficult. Federally thru Dept of Oceans and Fisheries they had this type of system years back. If a person was to do work on a wetland, river, creek etc that negitavely impacted it then the person would have to do some form of mitigative work to offset the damage either onsite or on another location. RM had to deal with this numerous times. Whats new is that now a $ value can be put on it and basically handed of to another agency. I'm assuming DU,CD etc.

Govt's at all levels are getting pressure from all sides to manage / regulate drainage and land use. Their is a lot more emphasis being placed on wetland preservation, water retention and reducing water flows. The damage caused to private property ( land,farm buildings,crops, homes, fancy cottages built in flood zones at lake level etc) and public infastructure ( roads, culverts, bridges etc) by flooding is huge. Private insurance doesn't cover most of this and Govt's at all levels are broke and cannot afford to keep paying millions out in emergency programs and Disaster Assistance Funding. This is not only a problem in Manitoba but the rest of Canada and worldwide. Govt's are now stuck dealing with the problem created by years of poor land use planning, bad property development esp along lakes / rivers and insufficient water / drainage infastructure that has not kept up to current needs. Prov and municipal drainage infastructure that was built 1940 -60 was not designed to handle todays flows and unfortunately has not been upgraded or maintained to deal with todays agricultural and urban needs.

A lot of the other proposed chges I think will streamline the permit process to do Minor drainage and culvert/crossing works for farmers and RM.

Unfortunately the reality is that their will be more regulation and cost.

Shell doesn't do bulk delivery in Saskatchewan any longer.
FCL used to be the source of the fuel when they did.
Shell rack price may give some indication of where Co op is at.
I fully agree Co op is definitely not a price leader, they never were.
And as far as their oil pricing goes, well they have priced themselves right out of the market.

So the rack price for diesel is 10 cents cheaper in Toronto than Regina for diesel. I guess you have to be elected for this to make sense. Should be the other way around

Fuel here jumped 10 cents from last week to this week. Hope it will drop before spring, but not holding my breath.

Was at a farm show in the states yesterday and spoke with a fuel dealer. Price they gave me having never done business or even met me before was over 10 cents per liter less than I would be paying in Canada, and this is off my most recent Canadian fuel price which may just be low if farmercook is right. #2 summer diesel. The real kicker is that the fuel is refined in Canada and shipped via tanker to North Dakota! Now looking at whether they will drop-ship directly to me but I bet there is something in the rules that prevents this and protects the Canadian petroleum system...
