I am excited to celebrate this year’s recipients of the MLA for Fort Richmond bursary awards.
Congratulations to these deserving high school graduates:
David Jim Krouse, graduating from Fort Richmond Collegiate
Delphus Harper, a graduate of South East Collegiate
Jack Moore of Centre-scolaire Léo-Rémillard
Anne Zhang from Acadia Junior High was also honoured as a band student to continue her musical pursuits.
Your excellence is especially poignant during this challenging academic year.

As we look forward to a safe and healthy summer, I’m happy to highlight our province’s COVID vaccine progress.
We achieved our first milestone, withmore than 70 per cent of all Manitobans age 12 and above having received their first dose and over 25 per cent have received their second vaccination doses by the end of June.
This first milestone came hand-in-hand with some much-desired easing of restrictions. Of course, we are urged
to continue to follow the fundamentals including indoor mask use, physical distancing, and adhering to public health orders.
Here are some of the highlights of the newest public health orders:
Fully-immunized Manitobans can now visit loved ones in personal care homes or hospitals; travel domestically for essential and non-essential purposes outside of Manitoba without having to self-isolate upon return; and dine indoors at restaurants and bars with other fully immunized friends and family from outside their households.
For all Manitobans: outdoor gathering sizes on private property can now be 10 people; public outdoor gathering size limits have increased to 25; retail businesses can open at 25 per cent capacity; personal service businesses can reopen at 50 per cent capacity; restaurants and bars have reopened at 25 per cent capacity indoors and 50 per cent for outdoor dining.
Indoor faith-based services and organized community gatherings resumed at 25 per cent capacity to a limit of 25 persons with masks worn at all times; outdoor weddings and funerals may take place with up to 25 participants. Indoor weddings and funerals remain limited to 10 persons.
Recreation-wise, indoor dance, music, theatre and other organized sports and recreation activities may re-open at 25
per cent capacity to a limit of five persons; indoor and outdoor swimming and wading pools may reopen at 25 per cent capacity; gyms and fitness facilities may reopen for individual and group fitness classes at 25 per cent capacity with three metres distance
maintained between patrons; and summer day camps may reopen to a maximum of 20 participants in groups.

About Sarah Guillemard
Sarah is a community activist and long-time Fort Richmond resident.
A graduate of Fort Richmond Collegiate, Sarah has lived in Fort Richmond for over 30 years. She is proudly raising her family in the same vibrant, caring neighbourhood in which she grew up.
Sarah has been a tireless community advocate whose efforts have benefitted families in the community and throughout Winnipeg.
Sarah’s belief that parents should be active participants in decisions that affect their children’s education compelled her to take the lead in working with the Pembina Trails School Division to address timely issues. In recognition of her outstanding achievements, Sarah received the Parent Council Recognition Award from the Manitoba Association of Parent Councils in 2010.
Sarah also believes in welcoming those who are new to Canada. Living overseas with her husband and young family gave her an appreciation for the difficulty facing newcomers with a language barrier. This led Sarah to begin teaching English conversation classes for new Canadians through her church.
In addition to her work in the school system and with newcomers to Canada, Sarah was a long-time soccer coach and enjoyed working with her teams to bring out the best in each player both on and off the field.
Sarah was named Minister of Climate Change and Conservation following the 2019 provincial election.
With four generations of her family living in the area, Sarah is deeply committed to Fort Richmond. She is proud to be serving her second term as MLA for Fort Richmond, especially while navigating such a difficult situation as the global pandemic of COVID-19.
