Touring Other Facilities:

Over the years I’ve toured large facilities in Edmonton, Calgary and Ottawa. This month I toured two local facilities! Thank you to MLA Jon Reyes for organizing the tours of the centres in Winkler and Niverville. I’ve posted photos and a brief summary on each – SEE Touring Manitoba Recreation Centres

Thank you to everyone who has provided input, and I will keep you updated as this project develops.
