🎉 Join Us for the MST Zoom Meeting on February 6, 2024! 🎉


This week, we have a very special guest speaker who's a powerhouse within MST and a champion for freedom and democracy in Canada. Please join us in welcoming Ken Drysdale to the virtual stage.


Ken is not just any MST member; he's a co-founder of our movement, a dedicated advocate for freedom, and a key figure in shaping MST's mission. But his influence doesn't stop here.

Ken is also the Chair of the Commissioners at the National Citizens Inquiry, where he plays a crucial role in ensuring that the voices of everyday Canadians are heard.


He spearheaded the inquiry into Criminal Allegations following the COVID-19 response, authoring an 89-page report that delves deep into this critical issue.


With his vast experience and unwavering commitment to democratic values, Ken will provide unique insights into the inner workings of one of Manitoba's major political parties, the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba.


He'll take you on a journey through the party's constitution, its internal decision-making processes, organizational structure, and the rules that govern it. If you've ever wondered how you can directly participate in shaping a political party, Ken's got you covered.

Bakcgrounder for Guest Speaker


 

Featured Guest Speaker: Ken Drysdale | Co-Founder MST


Ken is more than just a political enthusiast; he along with Chris Riddell are the driving force behind MST's dedication to transparency, accountability, and democracy. His passion for these principles has been a driving force in our movement, and he continues to inspire us all to actively engage in the political landscape of Manitoba.


 

But that's not all! We have some exciting updates for you. We've heard your feedback, and we're constantly striving to improve our meetings to better serve our ever-growing MST community.


Starting with this meeting, we'll be adding a new feature to our weekly agendas.


As you know, we've been inviting members of the Manitoba Legislature to address our gathering of over 43,000 participants.


From now on, we'll include a section in our agenda to keep you informed about who we've invited and whether they've responded or not.


At MST, we believe in the power of direct communication between our members and their elected representatives. These responses, or sometimes the lack thereof, can provide valuable insights when it comes to making informed voting choices in the future.


So, mark your calendars, invite your friends, and get ready for an evening filled with knowledge, insights, and the opportunity to make a real difference in Manitoba politics.


Join us on February 6th at 6:30 PM Central Time. 


Let's make our voices heard, together!

Stay strong, stay informed, and stay MST! 💪🗳️🇨🇦

What Our Logo Means

The logo for Manitoba Stronger Together incorporates elements that symbolize unity, community, and the strength of the bison.

  1. Bison Icon: Is a silhouette of a stylized representation of a bison, symbolizing strength, resilience, and unity. The bison is depicted in a side stance, representing progress and moving together as a community.

  2. The vertical stripes: represent that the movement includes all people from all walks of life, all beliefs and all political affiliations.

  3. The Horizontal Connecting Lines: across the bison represent the connections and interdependence of community members, emphasizing the concept of being stronger together.

  4. Blue Tones: The blue in the logo design represents growth, harmony, and the natural beauty of Manitoba's landscapes.

  5. Dynamic Font: We choose a strong and modern bold font for the organization's name "Manitoba Stronger Together" to convey a sense of confidence and forward-thinking.



 

Let us continue to unite, ignite our passions, and work towards building a stronger and united Manitoba. Together, we will shape the future we want and deserve.


Keep an eye out for our next meeting announcement, and let us walk this transformative journey as one!


Stay united, stay empowered, and stay strong!

In solidarity,

The Manitoba Stronger Together Team
