New Year’s Message to Winnipeggers from Mayor Brian Bowman

As 2021 comes to a close and we look to the promise of a New Year, I want to thank Winnipeggers for all that they are doing to respond to the significant challenges of the global pandemic.

Winnipeggers should take comfort and inspiration from how our community weathered the COVID storm in 2021. How we supported local businesses. Answered the call from our healthcare heroes to get vaccinated. And supported local organizations that have been helping our most vulnerable citizens.

Whether it is a flood, blizzard or global pandemic, Winnipeggers know how to work together.

That is why I remain hopeful that our community will continue to demonstrate the strength, compassion and resilience that Winnipeggers are known for. Qualities of community that will be needed to carry us forward in 2022 and beyond.

From our family to yours, all the very best wishes for 2022. Happy New Year Winnipeg!
