Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Gladstone, on the CPR Minnedosa Subdivision in the Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone, was once part of the Manitoba Pool Elevators network. Taken over by its successor company Agricore, ownership reverted to the Gladstone Elevator Association due to “unfulfilled contractual obligations on the part of Agricore.” As of 1 August 2001, the building has been operated by Delmar Commodities.
