This spring was a great session in the legislature.

As families know, the end of June was grad season. Although on some days there were two or more graduations scheduled for the same day, I made it a priority to go to every neighbourhood school’s graduation I could. All the best to this year’s graduates.  Congratulations on accomplishing so much!

Our government’s $5.5-billion infrastructure plan will help keep our unemployment rates among the lowest in Canada. Thanks to these investments, families in the south end of Winnipeg will see a lot of positive changes to the south Perimeter over the next five years.

The Perimeter Highway is slated to be reconstructed from the Trans-Canada Highway to Brady Road which will smooth out the drive.

Manitoba is building a new diamond interchange at McGillivray Boulevard to help ease traffic congestion and Highway 75 will be upgraded to interstate standards just like I-29. Last year, we committed to building the bridge over Pembina Highway, including active transportation elements.  Construction will be finished this fall.

Now is the time to invest in infrastructure and training for our young people. These good jobs and opportunities will help ensure Manitoba continues to be a great place to live and raise a family, and help our graduates set down roots right here in Manitoba.

Feel free to contact my office with any questions or concerns at 204-261-1794 or by email at Dave.Gaudreau@YourManitoba.ca. Congratulations to all the new Manitoba graduates! See you on the doorstep this summer!
