The Manitoba government today released its 2014-15 annual report on ALL Aboard, the province’s poverty reduction and social inclusion strategy, which showed 5,000 fewer Manitobans were living below the poverty line in 2013 than in 2012, Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross said today.

“Poverty not only drags down individuals and families, it acts like an anchor on all aspects of life in this province,” Minister Irvin-Ross said. “While we’ve made progress in reducing poverty, we’re going to increase our efforts to help lift more Manitobans out of poverty.”

Theresa Oswald, MLA for Seine River, announced today that she will not seek re-election in 2016.

"Serving the people of Seine River has been a rare privilege and I thank them for their support and trust over the past 12 years," said Oswald.

It is with sadness that we share the news of the sudden passing of Bonnie Schmidt last night.

Bonnie was a long-time staff person at Provincial Office and a dedicated and deeply committed New Democrat, who most recently had been working in Tom Nevakshonoff's Constituency Office in the Interlake.

Many of you will have worked or volunteered on campaigns, events or fundraisers with her. Her devotion to our party and her desire to both see and actively participate in making positive change in Manitoba will be dearly missed.

As the year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to extend my best wishes to you and your family this holiday season.

The holidays are a good time to pause and reflect on a year gone by – and to look forward at the year to come.

They are time of generosity, hope and kindness. An opportunity to extend our hands and our heart to those less fortunate.

And they are a time for community. A time to spend in the company of family, friends and those you love.

So from my family to yours, I wish you the very best this holiday season and much health and happiness in the year ahead.

Be a part of it
