The campaign for the Manitoba provincial election is in full swing with a little more than two weeks before election day on October 3.

PC leader Heather Stefanson visited Lt. General Anita Neville on September 5, marking the dissolution of the House and the official beginning of the election period.

At dissolution, the governing Progressive Conservatives held 35 of the 57 seats in Manitoba’s Legislature. The NDP had 18, the Liberals held three and one seat was vacant.

Seven Filipino Canadians have put their names in the hat. Two of them are running for re-election while the other five are looking to join provincial politics for the first time.

To dance with a purpose


by Lucille Nolasco-Garrido

Dancing can mean different things to different people. It can be a means to express someone’s creativity as an art. It can help with uplifting your mood as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle. Dance can also be utilized to aid an important cause.

On September 23, dancing will take centre stage in ZumbaYanihan 2023 – a Zumba dance masterclass featuring talented Zumba instructors from the community, in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
