As we wrap up the last weeks of the school year and ease into the summer holidays, I want to take a moment to congratulate all the graduates in my constituency. I wish the classes of 2022 my heartfelt congratulations for all of the work that was done to achieve this important milestone.

With so many students going above and beyond during the difficult school year, I want to congratulate all the amazing young leaders who have made positive impacts on their school community this year. I am proud to recognize, yearly, one deserving student from each of our schools — Maples MET School, Sisler High School, Maples Collegiate, O.V. Jewitt School, Lord Nelson School, Elwick Community School, Robertson School, Andrew Mynarski and King Edward Community School with the Burrows MLA Leadership scholarship.

I would like to publicly congratulate and recognize the scholarship recipients from the graduating classes of 2022. I would also like to congratulate Amandeep Dhanoa from Maples MET School for winning Schulich Scholarship funding. The community of Burrows is so proud, and I cannot wait to see all that your future holds.

The amount of work that education staff have undertaken to keep our children safe and learning over the past two years has been nothing short of heroic. To the teachers who put in extra hours adapting their lesson plans online, we commend you. To the educational assistants stretching themselves thin in classrooms that are not adequately resourced, we salute you. To the janitors and custodial staff going above and beyond to ensure that classrooms and hallways are sanitized, we thank you. For school staff, I know that each day you’ve done your best to make your students feel safe and supported in an environment in which they can learn.

As the MLA for Burrows, I will continue to call on the government to bolster resources in our classrooms so that we can ensure we have smaller classroom sizes, nutrition programs, mental health supports, and a plan to break the cycle of child poverty.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact with my office by calling 204-415-7621 or

Our constituency office is located at 3-350 Keewatin St. Have a relaxing and safe summer holiday!
