Manitoba Liberals Nominate Kathryn Braun for Kildonan-River East

Nurse Practitioner to run under Manitoba Liberal banner


WINNIPEG – This evening, Manitoba Liberals nominated Kathryn Braun as the

candidate for Kildonan-River East in the upcoming provincial election. Braun, a nurse

practitioner, has experienced the chaos of the Pallister Government’s health care

changes first hand while working in the system. She also experienced it first hand when

her father fell ill.

"My dad was ignored and neglected by the many staff who didn’t seem to have the

capacity to do their jobs properly" said Braun. "The failure of the healthcare changes

should not leave anyone feeling written off. I am proud to stand with the Manitoba

Liberals who have committed to ensuring that healthcare is reliable, responsive, and

provided close to home."

In September 2018, Braun’s father George Myer received a CT scan and an MRI which

showed a growth on the upper lobe of his right lung. After months of delays, Myer was

taken to an Emergency Department on Christmas Day. During this visit, Myer was left

on a stretcher in the hallway for between 48 and 60 hours. Myer was diagnosed with

lung cancer much too late.

"I am honoured that someone of Kathryn’s tenacity and courage has decided to run for

the Manitoba Liberal Party. We are very excited to have her on the team," said Dougald

Lamont, Leader of the Manitoba Liberal Party.
