This fall is an important time for our party. Manitobans have assigned us an important role as the Official Opposition, and there is no shortage of work to be done to hold Brian Pallister's Conservatives to account.
In addition, we are preparing for the incredibly important task of selecting our next leader. Robust engagement with members is essential for strengthening local constituencies and our grassroots activism ahead of Convention 2017.
All of this hard work promises to bring new energy and renewal to our party. There is much to be excited about and look forward to, and that is why it's important we find time to come together as New Democrats.
