I was pleased to represent Minister of Education Ian Wishart at the grand opening of the new #Leatherdale Hall at The University of Winnipeg.

Leatherdale Hall was funded by $4 million in private donations including a whopping $2.5 million from Doug and Louise Leatherdale.

The hall includes the return of Tony's canteen to the University of Winnipeg Collegiate - many alumni shared fond memories of the original Tony's.

Architect Bridgman Wins Architect did a amazing job creating a functional and beautiful space. He even included a spot for heckling!

FUN FACT: Wins and I each have 6 children! Not too many families around that size these days.

One day last week, my calendar had me out of the house and on the go for 15 hrs straight from 6AM to 9PM.

Then my 5 year-old daughter called to ask me to come home for a tea party after school. She had carefully laid out all the place settings and made special treats for each family member.

How could I say no?

I had a productive and informative meeting w/ Bonnie Snow of Adoption Options Manitoba earlier this week.

Creating an adoption plan is one way parents can choose a love-filled life away from CFS and foster care for their child.

95% of today's adoptions have some degree of openness and continued contact with the birth parents after placement.

Placing a baby in an open adoption is a decision that requires tremendous strength & courage. I commend all who choose to do so.
