Yesterday was our first full day back in session, and I’m very excited to have had the chance to recognize a special constituent from my riding of Fort Whyte.

Vanessa Borovich is a young resident of Whyte Ridge who started the Welcome Basket initiative through the Whyte Ridge Community Centre.  These Welcome Baskets are delivered to new neighbours, some of which are new Canadians, just like her family was when they arrived from Uruguay in 2002. To date, Vanessa has partnered with 10 local businesses, and delivered 27 Welcome Baskets!

Thank you to Vanessa for going above and beyond for her community!
