New year, new role
Hey there, time traveller!

The past year has certainly been a busy one!
As you may know, I was recently appointed Minister of Northern Affairs. I am honoured and excited to take on this new role. I wanted to write a bit more about how this new role will complement my most important role as your Member of Parliament.
This month, I have travelled to our Northern Territories and to Churchill to meet with local leaders, stakeholders and community members to better understand the issues that are a priority to them. As the new Minister of Northern Affairs, it is important for me to hear from them so that I can ensure that the work we undertake responds to their needs and priorities.
It is similar to the work I do as your MP: in order to be an effective voice for you in the House of Commons and at the Cabinet table, I need to hear from you and meet with you to hear those concerns and suggestions. That’s why it is important for me to continue to attend our community events — from the Breakfasts with Santa to the Canada Day celebrations, each of these allows me to connect with you, the residents of Saint Boniface – Saint Vital.
As the federal budget nears, this is an important time to have your voice heard. You can share your thoughts with me at email@example.com, or take a survey and share your ideas at budget.gc.ca/PBC/ or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also meet me at my annual Louis Riel Day Pancake Breakfast. I invite everyone from Saint Boniface – Saint Vital to join me on Mon., Feb. 17 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Southdale Community Centre for free pancakes and conversations with friends. It’s a great way to meet up with friends and neighbours before heading out to Voyageur Park!
