During his participation in the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce Speakers Series, Ron Lemieux, Minister of Local Government, suggested that he would like to have an open discussion with local chambers about their community needs and how his portfolio could work with them and the municipalities. 

True to his stated intent, the Minister attended the MCC 2010 AGM, provided some comments (see video below) and participated in and listened during a wide-ranging open forum. 

A transcript of the discussions is available here
