Recognizing Canada Day in Tyndall Park
Hey there, time traveller!

I recognize I am biased on this issue, but I believe Canada is the best country in the world to call home. Canada as we know it today became a federation of provinces back in 1867, and we will be recognizing Canada’s 155th birthday this coming July 1.
We have not been able to have our usual Canada Day celebration in Tyndall Park for the past two year, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we are excited to share that we are going to try our best to make up for it this year
Canada’s birthday has always played a big role in my life and holds a special place in my heart. I grew up attending this annual event and, as I got older, I was unofficially promoted to the position of face painting and hosting games. Since being elected as an MLA in 2016, I have co-hosted this annual event in Tyndall Park. I am very much looking forward to being able to gather with the community the way we have in previous years prior to the pandemic.
My father, MP Kevin Lamoureux (Winnipeg North), and I want to extend an open invitation for you, your family, and friends to join us on July 1 this year as we restart our annual Canada Day event behind Tyndall Park School, alongside the Tyndall Park Community Centre.
We will have a smaller fireworks display this year, but you can expect to see many family fun games beginning at 5 p.m. As with previous years, the evening will be packed with activities that all can enjoy. For our young ones, and those young at heart, there will be water games, face painting, sack races, and more. Starting at 6 p.m., there will be numerous cultural performances, entertainment, and pizza will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. Dancing will be underway by 10 p.m. with Canada Day fireworks to follow at 10:35 p.m. sharp.
With this year’s event, and every year to follow, I want to ensure I do my part in recognizing Canada’s history and, furthermore, use our annual event as an opportunity to build awareness of reconciliation. We will start off the program with a land acknowledgment and will be having an Indigenous elder speak about what reconciliation means to them and how we, as Canadians, can do our part and take steps in the right direction. We also want to be able to highlight Canada’s Ukrainian heritage with a special number dedicated to the heroes of Ukraine.
It has truly been a long time, and we hope that this year’s event will be an opportunity where our community can reconnect and learn from one another. Hopefully the weather will coo-perate!
If you have any questions or would like to know more about the event details, or are interested in volunteering, please reach out to me at email@example.com.
I look forward to seeing you once again on July 1 at Tyndall Park.
