After 60 years of inaction by previous governments, I am proud to announce historic funding - $540 million - to build the Lake Manitoba Outlet Channel. It’s a promise we made in the 2016 election campaign and today we keep our promise. #mbpoli
It was my pleasure to bring official greetings on behalf of Premier Brian Pallister and Minister Ian Wishart, MLA for Portage la Prairie at the Motor Vehicle Industry of Manitoba Scholarship Awards banquet.
Special congratulations to the 21 award recipients who received $750 and $1,000 scholarships on their way to Red Seal certification! One of them even got to represent Canada on the world stage in a contest in Abu Dhabi!
An inspiring evening made even more special by the fact that my hosts and the driving force behind this organization are my former employers Don and Joyce Sobering. I worked as a courier for them for summer work after high school graduation nearly 30 years ago! Small world of Winnipeg!
Today our government announced that Concordia Hospital will be home to a new Connected Care Clinic next summer!
This clinic will be open 12 hours every day from 9AM to 9PM, 365 days a year! It will be staffed by qualified physicians and registered nurses. Patients will have access to X-ray, lab and diagnostic services all on site.
Approximately 50% of cases currently going to Concordia ER will be able to have their needs completely addressed in this new clinic.
This clinic will benefit area residents and also provide an alternative to urgent or emergency care for health concerns that need to be addressed the same day but are not life-threatening.
Dr. Ainslie Mihalchuk, chief medical officer of Concordia Hospital, and president of the Manitoba College of Family Physicians says, “Connected care works in partnership with other clinics to create a seamless patient experience, relaying information back to patients’ primary health-care providers and, most importantly, connecting patients to a primary care provider if they do not have one.”
Thank you to Health Minister Kelvin Goertzen for making this part of the plan for our health care system. Thank you also to my colleagues Blair Yakimoski, Andrew Micklefield, Cathy Cox and Ron Schuler for joining me in advocating for improved health care for the citizens of north-east Winnipeg.
And always remember: if you are experiencing a medical emergency call 911 so that you can receive the best available care soonest.
