In the campaign, local businesses and customers come together to support the Parkland community through shopping local. Stephen Chychota talks about how the campaign is going. "So far it has been great. A lot of positive responses from the business side of things, and also a lot of interaction through social media with people making their posts." So far the Chamber has given out Chamber bucks to 4 lucky winners, with 2 more prizes being given out in the next two weeks. Anyone wanting to participate just has to use the "#ShopParkland" when they are at participating businesses.

Again, I was elected in 2010, and since then, we've lowered taxes 15%, and in the last couple of years we haven't raised them and we haven't had to." Mayor Irwin mentioned having $1.2 million worth of road construction to take place in Dauphin. Irwin also talked about installing 50 kilo-watt solar project to run the pumps at the lift station in the north end, the first of its kind in the region.
