THANKS Cynamon Mychasiw for coming on the show today to talk about the URGENT NEED with the United Way Tools for School program! It makes sure that all students receive the educational supplies that they need for success in their classroom. In some areas of the Region, the need for backpacks filled with school supplies is as high as 8 in 10 students. United Way’s Tools for School aims to reduce barriers preventing kids from successful learning and participation in school. Donation collection bins are set up throughout the city of Brandon to help over 900 students each year. Supplies are boxed up and delivered to all schools in the Brandon School Division at the end of August and are made available to students for the first day back to school. With inflation hurting families across Manitoba in more ways that one, the NEED IS MUCH GREATER than it has EVER been! For more details on what is needed, and where you can drop off supplies please click below:
SPEEDY GONZALEZ! Not only does Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland drive, but she drives fast. Obviously not on her bicycle, and instead in a rental car in Alberta, apparently our Finance Minister has a lead foot. “The Deputy Prime Minister was pulled over for driving 132 km/h while travelling between Grande Prairie and Peace River,” said spokesperson Katherine Cuplinskas told the Toronto Sun. The Deputy PM’s office confirmed the charge to the Toronto Sun after news of the interaction broke on the Counter Signal website. In that story, Keean Bexte reported that she was driving 42 kilometres over the speed limit. Freeland’s office has so far not answered what the speed limit was in the area of the highway where she was driving.
