“Met Premier Brian Pallister and Ron Schuler, Minister of Crown Services at the Cafeteria of the Manitoba Legislative Building. We had a chance to talk briefly about FSJ and he told me that he will soon have a meeting with the premier of Ontario where he will ask about their efforts to stay away from Natural Gas. He is quite aware of how clean burning natural gas is.”

“WE NEED YOU! Who can join us in Winnipeg on Saturday morning to make a splash at the Liberal convention? We want you and your vehicles to join us 10 AM at the MTS Iceplex (3969 Portage Ave) from which we’ll head downtown to the Winnipeg Convention Centre (375 York Ave) for 11 AM.
