50 years of providing great care
Hey there, time traveller!

I hope this message finds all of you having enjoyed a wonderful summer within our community and around our beautiful province.
I had the great pleasure and opportunity to take part in numerous summer celebrations with both my family and my colleagues. So much to do, so much to see and too little time to do so.
One of the celebrations I would like to especially note was the 50th anniversary of Extendicare Tuxedo Villa on Aug. 21. Extendicare residences are located throughout Canada and are proudly commemorating their golden anniversary of “helping people live better.” We are very fortunate to have one of their facilities in the heart of our constituency.
Tuxedo Villa’s pledge to residents, their family and the community is making their facility feel like home. The dedicated staff create an atmosphere of home by lending their expertise and support to facilitate a lifestyle of engagement, activity and enjoyment. The core values of Extendicare and Tuxedo Villa are courtesy, attitude, responsibility and excellence which shines through when you visit the residence.
The executive at Tuxedo Villa is comprised of administrator Catherine Ceran, director of care Keri Robinson and medical director Dr. Whittaker along with their amazing team of registered nurses, registered practical nurses, licensed practical nurses, personal support workers, health care aides, recreational program leaders, certified activity aides, social workers, dietitians, housekeeping, maintenance and administrative staff.
I would like to take the opportunity to wish all of the residents, their families and the staff of Tuxedo Villa continued happiness as they move on to their next golden anniversary.
In closing, this year marks my 18th anniversary of having the honour of serving as the Member of the Legislative Assembly for Tuxedo. I am so proud of our community and for all of the endeavours that have been accomplished over the years.
After the 2016 provincial election I was appointed Minister of Justice, Attorney General and Deputy Premier of Manitoba. The achievements that were attained and the groundwork that has been established within various avenues of legislation since 2016, has made and will make our province better, stronger and safer in the years ahead.
As of Aug. 1 I have taken on the new portfolio of Minister of Families and will continue serving as Deputy Premier. I look forward to continuing the work that my predecessor Minister Scott Fielding has established and will be steadfast in ensuring that the best interests of my constituents and Manitobans are addressed.
