On behalf of the entire government caucus and all Manitobans, I would like to extend our sincere best wishes to Kevin Chief, member of the legislative assembly for Point Douglas, as he departs provincial public life at the end of this year.

Kevin’s passion for, and commitment to, his community has been evident throughout his career.  Not only in his work as an elected official but also during the course of his career preceding politics which saw him dedicate time to the University of Winnipeg, Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre and the River East Transcona School Division.

I know from experience, as do many members of our caucus, how challenging a life in politics can be for those with young children and I want to thank not only Kevin for his service, but his family for the sacrifices they have made in order for him to be able to serve the people of Point Douglas.

I know that all Manitobans join me in wishing Kevin and his family many happy moments together as he embarks on this new journey.
