Farmers whose lands were flooded as a result of the Manitoba government's decision to use the Portage Diversion this past summer will be eligible for $1.15 million in compensation, Agriculture, Food and Rural Development Minister Ron Kostyshyn and Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton announced today.

"During our flood response, the Manitoba government used the Portage Diversion to manage water flow and provide protection to as many Manitobans' homes and properties as possible," said Minister Kostyshyn. 

"The government recognizes this decision led to flooding on agricultural land and losses for producers.  This compensation will be targeted to farmers affected by the use of the diversion and support their land restoration efforts."

"Payments will be made to crop and forage producers in the immediate vicinity of the Portage Diversion for lost production and land restoration," the minister said, adding more than 2,500 acres are expected to be eligible.

"Manitoba is following through on its commitment to help farmers, families and rural communities recover from this year's flooding," said Minister Ashton.  "At the same time, we continue to invest millions of dollars in flood-related infrastructure to reduce the future effects on people and property."

Affected producers will be contacted by Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC).  Producers can also contact their local MASC office for information.   

Minister Kostyshyn noted this support is in addition to the Canada-Manitoba Forage Shortfall and Transportation Assistance Initiative announced under the AgriRecovery framework last week.  Additional information about flood recovery programs for agriculture is available online at

Saturday, 11 October 2014 00:41



Goaltenders Adam Vander Linden and Devon Fordyce made 75 saves combined as the OCN Blizzard beat the Winkler Flyers 1-0 in the shootout on Friday night. Blizzard forward Rhett Law scored the only goal of the six round shootout, handing the Flyers their second shootout loss in as many games.

Playing the first of two straight home games against the Blizzard, the Flyers looked to get back in the win column after falling 4-3 in a shootout to the Winnipeg Blues on Tuesday night.

 The Flyers had many great chances to score in the opening period but were unable to capitalize on their chances. The two teams skated into the first intermission scoreless despite Winkler outshooting the Blizzard 17-11 through 20 minutes.

With end to end action the entire game, both goaltenders stood tall and kept the game 0-0 throughout regulation and into the five minute overtime period. Despite the lack of goals, this contest was as exciting a game as you could ask for.

Blizzard forward Rhett Law scored the deciding goal in the sixth round of the shoot-out and that proved to be the difference as OCN took game one of the weekend series 1-0.

Adam Vander Linden (3-1-1), who was credited with the shut-out, made 35 saves through 65 minutes of play as the Flyers out-shot the Blizzard 40-35 throughout regulation and overtime.

Winkler went 0-for-5 on the power-play and 4-for-4 on the penalty-kill.

The two teams will go at it again Saturday night in Winkler. Puck drop at the Winkler Recreation Complex is 7:30pm.

Tristan Keck scored his second goal of the game with 9.9 seconds left in overtime to lift the Winkler Flyers to a 2-1 home ice victory over the Selkirk Steelers.

Adam Vander Linden kicked aside 29 of the 30 shots he faced while earning his second victory of the season.

With two days off since their last game, the Flyers returned home for their first meeting of the season against the Steelers. After beating Selkirk twice during preseason, the Orange and Black were poised to do the same during the regular season.

The Flyers took the play to Selkirk in the opening frame and drew first blood with 5:57 left in the period. Defenseman Connor Hamonic passed the puck up to Shawn Pachet who found Tristan Keck up near the Steelers blueline. Keck then cut to the middle of the ice and fired a wrist shot between the legs of the Selkirk defenseman and over the shoulder of the goaltender giving the Flyers a 1-0 lead.

Winkler outshot the Steelers 17-6 through the first 20 minutes, but were forced to settle for only a 1-0 lead heading into the intermission. Selkirk managed to outshoot the Flyers 12-6 in the second period but the Flyers still led the game 1-0 heading into the third.

The Steelers were able to tie the game at one, 5:38 into the third period and with the score remaining tied through regulation, the game was headed for overtime.

With the five minute overtime period nearly at and end, Tristan Keck was able to send the home crowd happy for the second time this season. Skating down the left wing, Keck made his way towards the front of the net and scored his second goal of the game over the right shoulder of Steelers goaltender Nathan Park to secure the 2-1 victory. Evan Last and Connor Hamonic drew the assists on Keck’s third goal of the season.

Adam Vander Linden had another strong game in goal for Winkler making 29 saves while improving his record to 2-0. Winkler out-shot Selkirk 34-30 overall. The Flyers were 0-for-3 on the power-play and 2-for-2 on the penalty-kill.

The Flyers (2-1) will host the Dauphin Kings (2-0) on Friday, September 26th in their next game. Puck drop at the Winkler Recreation Complex is 7:30pm. Winkler had a 2-2 record against the Kings last season.
