Inspiring all DJs through Education, Networking and Support
Last week, CPDJA Manitoba Regional Team Leader Kent Gudmundson sent a letter to Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister on behalf of DJs and wedding professionals in the province of Manitoba. The letter expressed a sincere frustration that most of the wedding and special events industry was completely shut out of a recent $5000 grant announcement to assist small businesses with the recent code red restrictions.
No response from the Manitoba Premier was received, but the Leader of the Official Opposition, NDP Leader Wab Kinew, was quick to reply and committed to supporting Kent's message by writing Scott Fielding, Manitoba's Minister of Finance.
Yesterday, on Monday, November 23, 2020, Wab Kinew followed through with his commitment and urged the Minister of Finance to change the implementation of the Manitoba Bridge Grant program to include our sector and to followup with our Regional Team Leader for Manitoba, Kent Gudmundson.
We are encouraged by and applaud the work Kent is doing on behalf of the industry in Manitoba.
Following is the letter that Wab Kinew submitted to the Minister of Finance.
