Happy New Year to St. Boniface Hospital staff
Hey there, time traveller!

As we close out one of the hardest years in living memory, we reflect that there are few it’s been harder on than our brave and dedicated health care workers.
I want to show my appreciation for the health-care workers who have struggled so much in 2020 and, in spite of the vaccine rollout, still have tough times ahead in 2021.
With that in mind, my office is humbled to partner with the Norwood Grove and Provencher Business Improvement Zones to provide a gift to nurses at the St Boniface Hospital.
Using the St. Boniface ward per capita grant, $1,000 worth of gift cards are being purchased from restaurants and eateries in the St. Boniface area to be distributed to nursing staff at the St. Boniface Hospital.
Our hope is that they will be able to enjoy a nice meal from one of our many outstanding establishments along Marion Street, Provencher Boulevard, Goulet Street, St. Mary’s Road, Archibald Street and in between.
2020 has also been a hard year for our small and local businesses. Successive shutdowns and disruptions to their operations have seen many struggling. My hope is this initiative helps them out, as well.
Thank you to the Manitoba Nurses Union for helping facilitate the distribution of these gift cards, and on behalf of all St Boniface residents — thank you to all the staff at St. Boniface Hospital.
