With the summer in full swing, I have been taking advantage of the warm weather and longer days and am attending many of the wonderful events Dawson Trail has to offer. I’m excited to be attending the Richer Roughstock Rodeo, as well as the Landmark Friendship Festival. Both are fun, family-friendly events filled with lots of activities to bring the community together. I look forward to getting out and joining in the festivities and spending time with constituents.

I’m happy to highlight that our government has recently provided the Bibliothèque Taché Library with some additional funding. The library is receiving $83,774.24 to support their facility and activities during the current fiscal year.

Last March, our government launched the five-year, $25 million Teachers’ Idea Fund, which provides funding for innovative solutions created by educators. These initiatives enhance classroom support and improve student learning outcomes and well-being. Our government recently announced that an additional $1.8 million has been invested into new projects, bringing the total funding for approved projects to just over $7.8 million. Of the most recent approved projects, three of them affect schools in the Dawson Trail constituency. Richer School is receiving $18,280 to improve their students’ oral language and literacy skills; Dawson Trail School is receiving $14,700 to help engage the families and parents of their students, and Collège Lorette Collegiate is receiving $5,000 to help create connections through E-sports.

I’m proud to be part of a government that recognizes the importance and value of supporting its rural communities.
