It’s the last week of 2018, and it was quieter because of the Christmas Break. It’s given me a little time to relax, and spend some time with my wife and kids.
In one of my year-end interviews, with CBC, I was asked what my “worst” moment of the year was. When asked the question, all I could think of was all the people I’ve met and known across Manitoba who have lost friends and family members, or who are struggling to get help with addiction or finding a job.
Whatever my “worst moment” would be, it would seem small in comparison to the tough times so many people I know and met have gone through in the last year.
It was a good year. I am grateful to everyone who made it possible. There are always too many people to thank, but it is humbling to earn the support of extraordinary people like you.
Now that the Winter Solstice is past, the days are getting longer and we can look forward to New Year and new beginnings.
In St. Boniface in February, we will be celebrating the 50th edition of the Festival du Voyageur. Tickets are available here: https://www.heho.ca/en/.
Since the legislature does not return until March, we will be busy planning, and touring Manitoba to listen to Manitobans about what their top issues are.
If you want to have me visit a community or group, let us know!
All the best to you and yours for a peaceful and prosperous New Year,
Leader, Manitoba Liberal Party
MLA St. Boniface
