My name is Willard Reaves and I am your Manitoba Liberal Candidate for Fort Whyte.
I have been watching with growing concern the direction our province is headed in, and now it's time for me to step off the sidelines and fight for Manitobans. I decided it’s time to do what I’ve always done – make a difference.
I was married in Manitoba, raised my family right here in Linden Woods, and helped the Winnipeg Blue Bombers capture the Grey Cup in 1984. After my football career, I worked as a Sergeant with the Manitoba Sheriff Service and have spent many years working with the community, sports organizations, and charities across Winnipeg and Manitoba.
The massive cuts to our health care system by the PC government have left the system underfunded and understaffed. The situation has been made much worse since COVID-19.
The PCs are even cutting funding to our education system that our future generations depend on.
I have lived in Winnipeg and this constituency since 1985. I joined the Manitoba Liberal Party because they are the only party that will fight fair for what we know is best for Manitoba: fixing what was done and focusing on what we need going forward.
My promise is that I will focus on the priorities that matter the most to you: making life more affordable, supporting local businesses, and improving our health care and education systems.
All my life I have had success against all odds.
It’s time to do it again.
