The weather is changing, the snow is melting and our government is hard at work in the Manitoba Legislature for the spring session. Our team is working hard to make life more affordable, strengthen health care and bolster the economy.

Our government has stood in solidarity with Ukraine as the world watched with horror when Vladimir Putin illegally invaded Ukraine, and our government has since taken action. We have waived the fee for Ukrainians coming to Canada through the provincial nominee program, pledged $800,000 to the Ukrainian-Canadian congress and removed all Russian liquor products from Manitoba Liquor Marts. As your MLA, I can assure you that our government will continue supporting Ukrainians during this time. The Manitoba government also has a website full of resources for Ukrainians coming to Manitoba.

Recently, I was excited to welcome a neighbouring MLA to the Legislature when Obby Khan became the first Muslim MLA in Manitoba’s history after winning the Fort Whyte byelection. I am excited to work with MLA Khan alongside our entire Progressive Conservative caucus, and I know he will be a strong voice for southwest Winnipeg as we work together to build a brighter future for all Manitobans.

Heather Stefanson, Premier of Manitoba and MLA for Tuxedo, welcomed newly elected MLA Obby Khan to the Legislature at his swearing-in. Khan won the Fort Whyte byelection on March 22.

As Manitoba emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, our government has been hard at work preparing budget 2022. This budget is about Manitoba’s recovery — more affordability, stronger health care and building our economy. Manitobans deserve a budget that revitalizes and strengthens our province, and I‘m excited to share its contents with constituents.
