The fall session of the Manitoba Legislative Assembly began with the Throne Speech on Nov. 19. The fall session wrapped up on Dec. 5, with the spring session to begin in March 2020.

Prior to the fall session the Premier made some changes to cabinet. I now have the honour of being named Minister of Agriculture and Resource Development. The Department has been expanded to include- besides Agriculture- Mines and Petroleum, Forestry, Wildlife, Fisheries, Crown Lands, Water Management. These are all natural resources with a major economic impact on Manitoba. It has been an intensive six weeks learning the various divisions of the new department and with great staff I look forward to helping guide new initiatives to assist Manitoba to move forward.

My constituency office is located at Unit 2 – 195 Main St. S in Carman. Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. to noon. Contact info 204-745-2203 or

From our family to yours wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year. Manitoba and indeed all of Canada have so much to offer. Peace and Good Will to everyone as we celebrate our diversity and our strengths together.
