Driedger returned to office

September 16, 2019

Winnipeg Free Press - The day after she was re-elected as MLA for Roblin, Progressive Conservative candidate Myrna Driedger’s voice was a bit worn out, but she is pleased to be serving her seventh term. “I am going to continue to do what I do within my constituency — meet with people,” she said. According to Elections Manitoba’s unofficial results, Driedger received 6,075 votes, easily defeating second-place New Democratic Party candidate Sophie Brandt-Murenzi, who garnered 1,886 votes, and Liberal candidate Michael Bazak with 1,728, and Green Party candidate Kevin Nichols with 1,209. With the provincial constituencies’ boundary realignment, this was the first time that Roblin included the RM of Headingley, which was formerly situated in the Morris constituency. Driedger said, while she definitely walked more than in previous campaigns, she received a strong response from Headingley residents.

Roblin candidates speak on policies

September 3, 2019

Winnipeg Free Press - Myrna Driedger (Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba): Changes are being made in health care in order to fix a system that was broken. The fact it is one of only three ERs remaining open and relatively close to the Roblin area is fortunate for the residents in terms of emergency health care. Cutbacks to front-line staffing have also hurt our health care system and have not been able to provide the level of care required. What I also hear at the door is the concern about privatization of the health care system. Seniors need access to adequate and appropriate health care, they also need these services at little to no cost.
