THANK YOU!                                  

Steven Fletcher went to the University of Manitoba where he obtained his engineering degree and, after his accident which left him paralyzed from the neck down, an MBA. Steven overcame adversity and persevered through traumatic injury with the belief that public service was how he could best give back to a city, province and country that helped him to live and to heal.

Over more than a decade of public service, Steven rose to serve in Cabinet and supported the economic viability of the services and infrastructure we rely on, and did so throughout a period of unprecedented change in the Canadian and Global economy. Steven worked to bring our hard-earned tax dollars from Ottawa back to Manitoba.

Brian Pallister asked Steven to run in Assiniboia given his legislative experience and his loyalty to local constituents. Steven, alongside an increasing number of voters in Assiniboia, believe the time has come to put an end to unbearable hospital wait times, bottom-of-the-pack educational results and irresponsible fiscal management.
