    École River Heights School is a candidate school for the Middle Years Program in the International Baccalaureate World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. The programmes focus on teaching students to think critically and independently, and how to inquire with care and logic. With an innovative, international approach, students learn in ways that develop their full potential. As part of that candidacy the school hosted its very first National Indigenous Day at the school today. I was very impressed by all of the students who created movies, PowerPoint presentations and stand up displays, documenting the history of Indigenous people in Manitoba and the River Heights area. My tour guides Aidan and Grace were very knowledgeable and gracious hosts. It was a pleasure meeting the students who researched and created the displays and participated in the day’s events. I am very proud of and impressed with everyone’s efforts!

    This afternoon I attend the Women's Health Clinic AGM.  I very much appreciate how they struggle in the current climate after being affected by cuts to the healthcare system. They have a strong desire to remain relevant, especially toward Mental Health and Wellness.  Carolyn Clarke and Margaret Kozlowski both received awards for their years of dedication to the WHC.  New executive director Nadine Sookermany has returned to Winnipeg and the WHC with a vision to improve and strengthen the organization. Her goals include helping continue to support the health care needs of all cis and trans women, while raising awareness of life situations faced by non-white women and their ability to access healthcare in our province.

    The Association des Professeurs et Professionnels de l’Université de Saint-Boniface (APPUSB) hosted a rally with MGEU members from The Université de Saint-Boniface to protest cuts to post secondary education, and the loss of two French professors. These cuts not only impact Charter Rights for people to learn in Canada's other official language, but also affects local and international students who are our future.  The 2018-2019 Manitoba Budget saw support for post-secondary institutions (colleges and universities) cut by 0.9 per cent, or $6.3 million. This has resulted in cuts to programs and jobs.

    Today I attended the groundbreaking ceremony at the Winnipeg Art Gallery for the new Inuit Art centre. It will be a 40,000 square foot architecutral landmark housing over 13,000 artworks from Indigenous artists. It's creation is a step in a very positive direction bringing the North to the South, which is supported by all levels of government. I look forward to attending the grand opening when its completed!

    Manitoba needs a plan to deal with a drought. We need to be ready not just for floods, but for a drought. It will come. Will we be ready? Please share if you agree.

    Yesterday in Question Period, I asked the Pallister government to share with Manitobans how the government plans to evacuate people when planes cannot land due to dense smoke.
    Question Period - Wildfire Evacuations

    Im very upset about how the fires were responded to in first nations, last year with island lake and this year. Dont wait bickering over who has responsibility and listen to the leadership and trust their governing judgements when its matters of life and death. These latest fire evacuations are too close for comfort.
