I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a great start to the New Year. 2020 is an exciting year because not only is it the beginning of a new decade, but it also marks the 150th anniversary of Manitoba joining confederation.
Well, it’s December. Where has the year gone? These past couple of weeks have seen a lot of activity in the Dawson Trail constituency, and that’s going to increase as the holidays continue to creep up.
With November underway, I’m looking forward to what the rest of this month will bring, particularly in regard to our Manitoba government.
With a new mandate from Manitobans for our provincial government, I’m pleased to have the privilege of serving and representing the Dawson Trail constituency for another term at the legislature.
I am happy to report that since the beginning of this year, several organizations in the constituency of Dawson Trail have received grants from our Manitoba government.
Manitobans understand that a stable income and financial certainty are necessary for retirement. Our government is working diligently on strengthening the province’s pension system to ensure that steadiness after their working years.
With the legislative session wrapped up for the next few months, I am looking forward to getting out more in the Dawson Trail constituency.
Our Manitoba government is now providing non-profit groups and charitable organizations with a modern and efficient grant support program for community development projects.
Our government has been busy since we returned to the House in early March to work on legislation for the benefit of Manitobans. This period has also given me opportunities to present a couple of private member’s statements in honour of inspiring residents of the Dawson Trail constituency.
Despite the frigid weather and snowfall we experienced in February, it turned out to be a great month. This is largely because February is I Love to Read Month, when schools across Manitoba share the importance and joy of reading with students.
