The future looks prosperous as we focus on quality of life, clean water, housing and economic development. We recently engaged in a waterline contract with Russell to bring clean fresh water to our homes. Where we lack resources, the Municipality of Russell Binscarth was more than willing to meet the demand of our growing population in terms of waste deposal and fire protection agreements. We have similar views in the midst of our cultural diversities, sharing a common vision for future growth and development and working together for the betterment of those living and working in our communities.
Economic development activities we are currently engaging in include oil drilling on our land as well as the final stages of commencing an addition to reserve in Brandon which will include retail businesses.
As Chief of Gambler, I extend an invitation for you to join me for coffee and conversation. My door is always open as I strive to make myself available for members and neighbours alike. I look forward to new and exciting ventures exploring the vast opportunities this Land has to offer. We are always looking for new and exciting opportunities in which to work, play and raise our families. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me by phone, by mail, or in person.
