Hey there, time traveller!

As your Member of Parliament, I have been working hard to advance your priorities in the community and in Ottawa.
Locally to date, I have met with several provincial cabinet ministers, Winnipeg city councillors, and the mayors of East St. Paul and West St. Paul, to discuss how we can work together to bring much-needed infrastructure dollars to our community.
Critical infrastructure projects have been delayed for far too long. The North End wastewater treatment plant is nearing the end of its life cycle and needs to be replaced. The plant treats 70 per cent of Winnipeg’s wastewater and its replacement cannot be pushed off any longer. The Chief Peguis Trail extension to Centreport is a key element of Winnipeg’s inner ring road and was first proposed over 50 years ago. Kildonan – St. Paul residents have been clear — they want to see these two projects move forward without delay.
In addition to advocating for infrastructure in our community, I have been happy to attend a variety of local events and meet you, the residents of Kildonan–St. Paul.
One of the most memorable events was ‘I Love to Read Month,’ where I visited students in the River East Transcona School Division and the Seven Oaks School Division and read The Little Boy from Jamaica, authored by Kildonan–St. Paul constituents Devon and Pearlene Clunis. The book is about Devon’s inspiring journey to become the first Black Police Chief in Canadian History. Seeing the smiles on the faces of students as they heard this powerful story was truly a highlight.
On Feb. 14, I handed out Valentine’s to seniors of River Ridge II and the Donwood Manor Personal Care Home. I was pleased to bring greetings and to spend time listening to the concerns of residents. Everyone was looking festive in pink and red outfits during an afternoon of activities organized by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers to celebrate the day.
Having the responsibility of representing such a wonderful, hard-working, and steadfast community in Ottawa is something I take very seriously. I am working hard to represent you in the House of Commons and hold the government to account on your behalf.
If you would like a visit to your local organization, or would like to share your thoughts and concerns, please contact my office at 204-984-6322 and email@example.com
