Cyndy and family recently witnessed first hand the devastation of our health care system caused by PC and NDP cuts and neglect.
As MLA for Steinbach, Cyndy will work hard to:
FIX HEALTH CARE beginning with addressing the shortage of doctors in Steinbach where there are over 6,000 residents without a doctor.
RESTORE THE EDUCATION SYSTEM by providing stable and dependable funding based on student growth and inflation.
IMPROVE SENIORS CARE AND LONG- TERM CARE by creating an independent office of a Senior’s Advocate as well as ensuring better funding and staffing for care homes and home care workers.
WORK TOWARDS SAFER COMMUNITIES by addressing root causes, as there is a strong correlation between crime rates and addictions, mental health, poverty and homelessness.
