EAST SELKIRK, Manitoba (DTN) -- Doug Chorney's phone started ringing last week after he took part in a press conference with Manitoba officials about the province's new water management initiatives.

As president of Keystone Agricultural Producers in Manitoba, Chorney felt it was important the farm group play a role in working with government officials on surface-water management and drainage licensing requirements the province is developing. Chorney spoke about the importance for agriculture to be involved in the work from the get-go. At least some members of KAP question why the farm group was working with government officials on water regulations.
