Costa Rican retreat of Manitoba's premier
The Costa Rican retreat of Manitoba’s premier, Brian Pallister, is not exactly the humble, weekend getaway you might expect from a prairie premier known to tout his modest farming roots.
Its entryway, a series of stone steps leading through a small pond, opens to an open-concept living room. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Pacific Ocean, an azure pool in the foreground. Just beyond is the Pallisters’ 35-acre, private tropical forest, cut by a river.
