The best part of summer is being able to travel our beautiful constituency of Saskatchewan Rivers and connect with you.
Over the last few weeks, I have been pleased to have several meetings and public coffee parties. During a meet and greet at the Anderson Community Centre I was able to discuss issues with Lakeland Reeve Cheryl Bauer-Hyde in Christopher Lake. I also spent time in Meath Park and had a meeting at the R.M. of Garden River office during my summer tour of the constituency. In Meath Park, I often make it a point to stop in at the Country Store. It’s a great little place where Anne will greet you with a smile and some freshly-baked buns, perogies, muffins or pies. In White Fox on June 22, we celebrated the 90th anniversary of the community starting off with a pancake breakfast.
Just before the school year came to an end, I visited Grade 4 students at Red Wing School who were well-prepared with great questions and ideas. The future of our province is in great hands! Thank you to homeroom teacher Lisa for the warm welcome and generous hospitality.
On June 10, I was happy to help support the valuable 4H program in our area by attending the 4H finished beef auction. The grand champion steer was auctioned off, and I, along with Dr. Janzen, Dr. Wilson, and Fremont Trucking, were successful in our bid for it. We were happy to support the valuable 4H program in Prince Albert and surrounding area.
Canada day found me in Candle Lake with my family while
partaking in the annual parade and celebration. We are so fortunate to live in
a prosperous, free country, full of opportunity, surrounded by loved ones.
On the other side of the constituency, in Debden, I joined hundreds of
people who came out to celebrate the July 4th grand opening of the
new Demers Shopping Centre and the new RONA store. It was a wonderful event
that showed the strength of this amazing community. The people of Debden and
area have warm, welcoming hearts, resilience and optimism. I felt very
privileged to be included.
Serving in my role as the Saskatchewan Provincial Secretary, I was pleased to represent our province in attending the Ministerial Conference on the Canadian Francophonie Week in Iqaluit. The purpose of this conference is to identify Canada-wide intergovernmental collaborations likely to reinforce the vitality of francophone communities across the country. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the ministerial conference on the Canadian Francophonie (Cfpc) and this important milestone was highlighted by the ministers during the meeting that took place for the first time in Nunavut, the 27th and 28th of June, 2019.
More recently, I was pleased to be a part of history as I welcomed Canada’s Premiers and National Indigenous leaders to our beautiful constituency of Saskatchewan Rivers on July 9th. Premier Scott Moe was joined by New Brunswick’s Blaine Higgs, Alberta’s Jason Kenney, Prince Edward Island’s Dennis King, Quebec’s François Legault, B.C.’s John Horgan, National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Perry Bellegarde, and Nunavut’s Joe Savikataaq; all hosted at Big River First Nation by Chief Bruce Morin, to kick off the annual Council of the Federation meetings. This was a wonderful opportunity to showcase Big River First Nation’s many successes and sightseeing opportunities to a national audience. Many thanks to Big River First Nation for warmly welcoming all of Canada.
