Statement regarding reported claim against The Pas and firefighters

In recent days, it has been reported that Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries has filed a Statement of Claim against the town of The Pas and six volunteer firefighters.

To clarify, Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries was not advised of the filing of this Statement of Claim. To the best of our knowledge, this is a subrogation claim on the part of the insurance company. We received payment for the full amount of the Town Centre Hotel VLTs in June 2018, and therefore have no reason to be a participant in this Statement of Claim.

As this is now a legal matter, of which we are not involved, we are unable to provide further comment.
