Spring is a time of optimism
Hey there, time traveller!

As the days begin to get warmer and brighter, I see the arrival of spring as a time of renewal, optimism and hope. We know that the harshest winter days are behind us. For me, this means getting outdoors more frequently to enjoy nature.
This winter has been unlike any other, as we have had to stay apart from loved ones. I know that we have all grown tired of the COVID-19 pandemic and are eager to put this challenging time behind us. While we may not be fully out of the woods just yet, I am confident that we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Safe and effective vaccines are critical in our fight against COVID-19. Our federal government has been working around the clock to secure doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for Canadians. We are working closely with provinces and territories, who are responsible for vaccine rollout and administration. By the end of June, Canada will have received 23 million doses of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, with a total of 84 million doses arriving by the end of September. Every Canadian who wants a vaccine will have access to one by September 2021.
As we look forward to better days ahead, let’s remember that we must continue to do everything we can to keep one another safe. By keeping apart, wearing a mask and washing our hands, we will get through this health and economic crisis. It will take us all doing our part to keep our families and community safe. Every single one of our efforts matters in the fight against COVID-19.
Let’s also continue to support our friends, loved ones, and our community in any way we can. Throughout this challenging time, I’ve seen firsthand how Winnipeggers are coming together to support one another.
During the most difficult of times in our country’s history, Canadians have always stepped up to help one another, and this time is no different.
