Great summer weather offers needed normalcy

What a lovely summer we’ve had!
Between the gorgeous weather and the easing of public health restrictions, it’s been a welcome treat after the challenging year we’ve all endured. It’s been so nice to regain some sense of normalcy, and I would just like to thank all Manitobans for coming together to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Over the past year, many activities we have come to cherish have had to be postponed or cancelled. It’s great to once again see baseball diamonds alive with activity and the Lacrosse fields utilized by the many leagues throughout our city.
Another great outdoor activity that has seen an increase in interest is canoeing, and several new launch sites have been built to accommodate this growing number of newfound canoers. LaBarriere Park, located outside St. Norbert, along the Seine River, known for its many paths, fields, and sport areas, now boasts of a canoe launch site. The new site is easily accessible and accommodates more than one canoe being launched or docked.
In addition to the team sports, many organizations are hosting events that were previously postponed or cancelled. I am proud to represent a constituency that actively hosts events and supports so many community organizations. Golf tournaments have been hosted to support St.Amant, Dakota Community Center and this year, TJ’s Gift hosted their first annual golf tournament. COVID has emphasized the importance of family, friends, and community. Countless organizations and volunteers honour this sentiment by continuing to give their time and expertise.
Another great thing to have happened recently is that businesses have been able to fully reopen again. Businesses were hit hard this past year, especially small, local businesses. I’m so glad that they can fully reopen their doors once again, and it’s important now more than ever that we make a conscious effort to support our local businesses and families.
A great way to do that would be to attend some of the local outdoor markets. Not only is it a great way to support local, but it’s also a great way to get outside in the fresh air and interact with the community.
