Snapshot of Summer
It’s been great to be back in the riding the past month and have the opportunity to take part in the many parades, festivals, and cultural events that Provencher residents enjoy during the summer months.
My first event of the summer was the 50th anniversary of Chateau Malouin in St. Malo. My congrats to their team for so many years of providing seniors with affordable supportive housing. The next day, I was in La Broquerie for their annual pancake breakfast, then hurried to Blumenort for their parade.
On June 29th our Manitoba Caucus had the opportunity to sit down with the executive for the Association of Manitoba Municipalities and later that day with Winnipeg Mayor Scot Gillingham.
It was great to really kick off summer on July 1st at the annual Canada Day celebrations in Vita. It was a great turn out and great to see so many families enjoying the sunshine, and have that opportunity to connect with constituents.
Since June, I’ve also been able to attend parades and other events in Niverville, Lorette, Montcalm, Mitchell, Ste. Agathe, St. Labre, St. Joseph, and Dugald.
Last week, I had the privilege to travel to Churchill, Manitoba to do outreach for our party and hold meetings with our Manitoba Caucus. I had the opportunity to meet with the Board Chair and also the CEO of the Arctic Gateway Group, owners of the Churchill Port and railway line. We also met with the Chamber of Commerce and Parks Canada and toured several interesting facilities related to exporting and environmental projects. I was also able to meet with the mayor and other local officials. Our message of affordability and common-sense governance is working its way through the riding of Churchill Keewatinook Aski. While in Churchill, I was approached by several individuals, who identified themselves as residents of Provencher and expressed their concern about this current government and also appreciation for our Leader Pierre Poilievre and our conservative vision.
I’ve also had the opportunity to join my party’s leader (and I believe our next Prime Minister), the Hon. Pierre Poilievre at a couple of events this summer. Back in June, I was excited to join Pierre in Winkler in an effort to help the newest member of our Conservative caucus, Brandon Leslie, get elected. Earlier this week, I was in Kenora with Pierre as he held a rally to share our Conservative vision for Canada.
Everywhere I go, whether it’s around the riding, up in Churchill, Kenora, and even in Winnipeg, I hear the same two things. Canadians can’t afford the cost of living and we need a change in government. Provencher families, even those with good jobs are struggling to make ends meet. Justin Trudeau is out of touch and Canadians are out of money. That’s why I’m pleased to have this summer to spread our Conservative message of hope.
It is such an honour to serve Provencher as your MP. I am so encouraged by all the messages of support I receive from my constituents. It is great to know you have my back and you better believe I’ve got yours.
I look forward to more busy days ahead. More events, more conversations with constituents, hearing the issues that matter to you. Then, I look forward to taking those issues, the views and values of Provencher back to our Parliament in the fall, as your commonsense voice in Ottawa.
