Earlier this month Premier Wab Kinew travelled to Brandon to announce the establishment of a new Westman regional cabinet office to act as a liaison between families, businesses and community organizations in Westman and the provincial government.

The new regional cabinet office is being led by Jason Gobeil, a former school trustee with Brandon School Division (BSD), board member at Brandon University and community coordinator with more than 10 years of experience working directly in the areas of employment counselling, project management and community program development across the Westman region.

Head of Council for Boissevain-Morton, Judy Swanson, says she’s very pleased with the opening of this new office as it strengthens the communication and collaboration between Westman and Winnipeg, bridging the gap between two city centers, but also two very distinct regions.

“Personally, I think it’s a really good idea especially when we don’t have rural representation in government,” shares Swanson. “So, we really need to know that there is a bridge and that we can actually meet that gap. So, I thought that it was very positive for the provincial government to consider opening an office here.”
