This reporting covers the period from the last PRC meeting in February. Sisters, Brothers and friends, This continues to be an unusual time and I know we are all adjusting to this new COVID reality. It’s been very challenging for me not to be able to interact with members in person. I never thought that we would be running ratification votes for a potential 19,000 members all online. I also never thought that we would have to cancel our typical Labour Day activities because they go against basically every public health order.

This report covers the period from the last PRC meeting in November 2019. The federal election kicked off this reporting period.  With the new elections act requirements, more coordination was required.  Every member in the Prairies received a mailout with information on political party platforms.  We launched an election page on our regional website to consolidate all election related event notices and information.  While we were successful in getting some labour friendly MP’s elected, we also lost some great MP’s that were always ready to stand with our members.
