Questionnaire Response

Andrew Frank - Concordia

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

To work to ensure that Manitoba is a province where families find it affordable to live, that has healthcare and educational systems among the best in Canada, has a growing economy so my sons don’t have to move elsewhere to find good jobs and to chart a responsible course in addressing climate change.   In short to make Manitoba a place where our citizens can prosper and others choose to make it their new home!

2. Why should a voter consider electing you to represent them?

Over the past nearly 30 years I have had first hand experience in helping the most vulnerable in our society through my involvement with our local Harvest Food Bank, ensuring students have the resources and environment to excel while on a school board and the challenges of starting and developing a company that manufactures unique Smart products that serve medical, sports and consumer markets.    This all has provided me the empathy to understand the needs of the community and tools to help build the consensus, and implementation plans necessary to bring new solutions to challenges we all face as we go forward together in Manitoba

3. What key issue(s) / topic(s) will you stand for in your role as MLA, and why are these important to you?

Key issues for me as an MLA are Education, Healthcare and growing Manitoba’s economy.

With a child still in school and a business that is always looking for skilled employees I want to see an education system that equips our children to benefit from the employment opportunities and needs that Manitoba businesses have as they grow.   Healthcare has to improve to keep pace with an aging population and new technologies.  Thirty years of experience in helping those with medical challenges has given me insight into how we can better serve Manitobans.  Our economy has to grow to support the services and programs our community needs and to provide local opportunities for our children as they enter the workplace.

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

Deficits and debt means that Manitoban dollars that could solve Manitoban’s needs are not available to do so.  I am in favor of balancing the budget to free more resources for improving infrastructure, education and Healthcare.

As No. 2 seed, Chiefs on cusp of returning to AFC title game

December 30, 2019

Winnipeg Free Press - Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon III (25) is tackled by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Anthony Hitchens, left, and linebacker Reggie Ragland (59) during the first half of an NFL football game in Kansas City, Mo., Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019. - The Kansas City Chiefs were inches away from playing in the Super Bowl a year ago and, to many in their locker room, the sting of that overtime loss to New England has served as motivation to return to the AFC title game this season. That means they get the week off while the Patriots are forced to play a wild-card game, and ensures a divisional-round game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium the next weekend. The Patriots still have Tom Brady, and the Texans already have gotten the best of Kansas City once this season. STOCK DOWNWide receiver Sammy Watkins had just one catch for 8 yards against Los Angeles, though part of that had to do with the fact that Kansas City rarely had the ball.

Letters, Dec. 24

Winnipeg Free Press - On Dec. 12, I watched an interview on CBC News Network with a member of the faction "Conservative Victory." Nuclear optionRe: Small nuclear reactors no solution to climate change (Dec. 20)In his opinion piece, Dave Taylor makes a number of incorrect assumptions. Dr. Theresa Tam, chief public health officer of Canada, also released a report recently. A focus on health education and individual behavior change distracts us from understanding and addressing the root causes of health gaps. Let’s listen to communities with lived experience and public health experts to address the systemic injustices that drive health gaps and hurt us all.

December 9, 2019

Winnipeg Free Press - (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP)NEW YORK - Some Golden Globe nominations seemed like locks: Joaquin Phoenix, Tom Hanks, Adam Driver and Eddie Murphy. The film adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical stars Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson and Taylor Swift. HBO's “Watchmen,” an adaptation of one of the most acclaimed graphic novels of all time, was ignored by the Globe voters.
