Questionnaire Response

Greg Selinger - St. Boniface

1. Why did you decide to run in the 2016 Manitoba election?

When I look at all that we have accomplished over the years, I am deeply optimistic about Manitoba’s future. Our community is growing, more people are moving here and businesses are thriving in Manitoba’s strong economy. I want to ensure this momentum continues and that we continue to look after the most vulnerable members of our community.

 Je suis très optimiste quant à l’avenir de notre province quand je regarde tout ce que nous avons accompli ces dernières années. Nos communautés s’agrandissent, plus de gens déménagent ici et les entreprises prospèrent au sein de notre économie stable. Je veux m’assurer que cet élan continue et que nous prenions soin des personnes les plus vulnérables dans notre société.

2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as MLA?

I’ve enjoyed being part of this community for the last 37 years. Representing families at both the civic and provincial levels has allowed me to know and understand local residents well. I will continue to bring this experience and a strong desire to make sure everyone has opportunities here in Manitoba.

J’apprécie beaucoup faire partie de cette communauté. J’ai eu la chance de représenter les familles ici au niveau municipal et provincial, et ceci m’a permis de vraiment connaitre les résidents locaux. J’apporte ces années d’expérience et un fort désir de faire en sorte que tout le monde ait la chance de participer et de trouver du succès au Manitoba.


3. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our province? In your electoral division?

Manitobans look after one another, and it’s that sense of community and that sense of caring that we stand up for as New Democrats. We believe in strong education for all people, providing health care to everyone who needs it, and ensuring good jobs are available to all Manitobans. At the core of our party are values of inclusion, diversity, human rights and the basic principle that everyone matters. This is what we are fighting for in this election.

Les Manitobains se préoccupent l’un de l’autre, et c’est ce sens de communauté et de souci du prochain que nous défendons comme Nouveaux Démocrates. Nous croyons que l’éducation devrait être accessible pour tous, que les soins de santé devraient rejoindre tous ceux qui en ont besoin et que tous les Manitobains devraient pouvoir bénéficier de bons emplois. Les valeurs d’inclusion, de diversité, des droits humains et le principe simple que «chaque personne compte» sont au cœur de notre parti. C’est pour ces raisons que je me suis joint au parti, et ce sont pour ces valeurs que nous nous débattons dans cette élection.


4. What key issue(s) / topic(s) would like to stand for in your role as MLA, and why is it important to you?

St. Boniface is home to many young families who want to ensure a bright future for their children. I will continue to invest in schools, expand childcare spaces, and ensure post-secondary education is affordable so that young people have opportunities to build a good life here in our community.

There are also a lot of aging residents here. Health care is very important, which is why we’re investing in hospitals and personal care homes. Access to French language services is also very important to families in St. Boniface.

 Il y a plusieurs jeunes familles à Saint-Boniface qui veulent assurer un avenir prospère pour leurs enfants. Nous continuerons à investir dans nos écoles locales, à augmenter le nombre d’espaces de garderie et à assurer que les frais postsecondaires soient abordables pour que les jeunes puissent bâtir leur vie ici dans notre communauté.

Nous avons aussi bon nombre d’aînés dans notre quartier. Les soins de santé à long et à court terme sont très importants, et c’est pourquoi nous continuons à investir dans les soins de santé, les hôpitaux, les cliniques express et les foyers de soins personnels. L’accès aux services en français est aussi très important pour les familles à Saint-Boniface.

5. What is one thing in particular that you value about the electoral division that you wish to represent?

We have a real cross-section of Manitobans living in St-Boniface — old, young, newcomers and families across the socio-economic spectrum. I want to ensure that this spectacular diversity is represented in the Manitoba Legislature.

Nous avons une vraie diversité de gens qui vivent à Saint-Boniface- ainés, jeunes, nouveaux arrivants, et des familles qui couvrent la gamme socioéconomique. Je veux m’assurer que cette diversité impressionnante soit représentée dans la législature manitobaine.

6. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

St. Boniface is my home, and I have a deep attachment to all the wonderful people who live here. I had the privilege of representing this neighbourhood in municipal politics, and I’m dedicated to ensuring my neighbours, like all Manitobans, are looked after with the services they need.

Saint-Boniface est mon quartier, et je tiens à cœur toutes les personnes merveilleuses qui y vivent. J’ai eu le privilège de représenter cette communauté au conseil municipal, et je tiens à m’assurer que mes voisins, comme tous les Manitobains, reçoivent les services dont ils ont besoin.
