Manitoba Infrastructure gets new minister, name

MHCA will meet with newly minted Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Doyle Piwniuk, who takes over the portfolio from Reg Helwer, who becomes Minister of Labour, Consumer Protection and Government Services.

“I had a very good, introductory telephone conversation with Minister Piwniuk, welcoming and congratulating him on his appointment,” MHCA President Chris Lorenc said. “He comes with a strong background in finance, which is advantageous as provincial investment in core and trade transportation infrastructure is very much a financial priority as it is an economic-growth enabler.”

Lorenc said the minister’s office and the association are arranging a date to meet with Board members, to more fully outline the priorities of the industry, which are rooted in promoting economic growth not just provincially but regionally and nationally.

“Our advocacy for a Western Canada Trade Gateway and Corridor Initiative, which has growing support from regional and national bodies, would elevate the West’s and Canada’s trade profile and productivity,” Lorenc said. “And it dovetails with Manitoba Infrastructure’s trade infrastructure investment focus, to see all regions of the province tied to a trade-route highway so people and goods can move efficiently to their destinations, including outside the province.”

Piwniuk was among a number of cabinet changes Premier Heather Stefanson announced January 18. To view those changes, click here.
