MPI General Rate Application Hearing

Public Utilities Board

October 5 & 6, 2017

Download and read both PDF’s containing CMMG lawyer Raymond Oakes cross examination of Ward Keith. It starts on page 122 (749).

THE CHAIRPERSON: Good afternoon, Mr. Oakes…?

MR. RAYMOND OAKES: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Just before I start, I’d like to acknowledge, if I can, the graciousness of my colleague to the right, Mr. Williams, who is allowing me to not only go first this afternoon, but apparently tomorrow morning as well. It’s good to know that he’s still grounded despite his rising prominence in the highest court in the land.

THE CHAIRPERSON: Mr. Oakes, you mean Dr. Williams.

MR. RAYMOND OAKES: Yes. And Mr. Ward Keith, I also have a couple of lumps of sugar for you. I want to thank you for your direct evidence this morning. We’re very pleased to hear from someone with the dedication, professionalism and competence that you exhibit in these areas. It’s, I think, obvious to all those in the room and should be obvious to all Manitobans. So thank you for that.

MR. WARD KEITH: Thank you.

Alberta Fires Six Month Donor Update

In late January 2017 the CMMG received a letter from the Canadian Red Cross regarding the donation made by CMMG members in 2016 to help with the Alberta Fires in For MacMurray. Below is the letter we received. You can download a PDF of the brochure that accompanied the letter from here.

Subject: Alberta Fires Six Month Donor Update

Dear Friends of the Red Cross,

There are thousands of stories that have come out of the ashes of For McMurray. Everett’s is just one of them. Everett received help from the Canadian Red Cross after he returned home to find that the fire had consumed everything he held dear.

Your fundraising efforts in support of the Alberta Fires appeal ensure that the Red Cross is able to support people impacted by the worst domestic disaster in Canadian history. Your thoughtfulness ensures those affected have shelter, food, and even work-related equipment such as tools, so they can return to work once it is safe to do so.

Please find enclosed your copy of the Alberta Fires Six Donor Month Update. In it you will learn how your generosity is helping to restore hope to Everett and thousands like him who lost so much in the fire.

You will also see how your support is going to small businesses and local organizations that are so important to the health and resiliency of any community after a disaster.

I can’t thank you enough for the role you are playing in the releif and recovery operations in Alberta. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Ronan ryan

Chief Development Officer

Canadian Red Cross

We are inviting everyone to join the MB WRC in the “Celebrating Sadie Grimm” Motorcycle Ride and Celebration. It’s on Sunday June 11, 2017 starting at Headingley Sport Shop between 10 AM and 11 AM and ends with a celebration at the bandstand on Winnipeg Beach at 3 PM with reserved motorcycle parking on the main street, use of the bandstand and a live band provided by Town of Winnipeg Beach.

Please pre-register on www.eventbrite.ca. Its listed under “Outdoor and Travel“. Pre-registration is $20.00. Registration on event day, June 11, will be $25.00. Donations also welcome. All proceeds are going to erect a permanent structure for motorcyclists and the public in Winnipeg Beach. Work is in progress for approval of a covered picnic area and a metal motorcycle sculpture.

Rain or shine, use 4 wheels if you feel its not safe to ride. If you are unable to participate in the ride join us at 3 PM at the bandstand in Winnipeg Beach.

Who is Sadie Grimm? Sadie Grimm is the young woman who made history in 1914 by being the first woman to reach Winnipeg Beach, beating out many who tried the ride before her. Not too many roads back then and she was participating in the Antique Motorcycle Clubs Enduro ride. She got the gold! Descendants of hers are joining us in the ride and at Winnipeg Beach!

Thank you to Antique Motorcycle Club of Manitoba for kick starting the research and interest i Sadie Grimm in 2015 and to Carolyn and Paul Peters for all their research that has made this event a reality.

Thank you once again to CMMG for the great support they demonstrate for women riders and their enjoyment of the sport as well as their continued work towards a safer world for motorcyclists and reasonably priced quality insurance rates. Heads up everyone. To register or donate to the celebrating of Sadie Grimm Gold Medal Victory Ride on June 11, 2017, click here.
