RIVERVIEW TAKES TO THE WATER - by Robin McClure, input from Elizabeth Brigham & Alice Sherwin
The sports of kayaking, canoeing, and dragon boating are slowly developing a following in the community of Riverview.
Since its construction in 1997, the Manitoba Canoe & Kayak Centre has been offering programs to the public in
recreational and competitive paddling. A year-round training facility for Provincial and National Team athletes, the Centre
also provides recreational programs such as after-school paddling activities in the spring & fall, and XC skiing in the
winter, summer sport camps for children, and adult evening programs in kayaking & dragon boat. Alice Sherwin & Liz
Brigham both began their paddling careers through one of the Centre’ After-School programs and went on to represent
Manitoba at the Western Canada Summer Games, held last summer in the Interlake region of Manitoba. Now on the
training roster for the 2005 Canada Summer Games, both young women decided to step up their training this winter by
attending the team’ Spring Training Camp held at Del Lago Resort, near Houston, Texas this March. They returned
tanned and fit, having had a tremendous experience down south. Their days began at 7am with a light jog, and stretching,
followed by a 2 hour paddle, lunch break, then another long training session on the water, with some strength training to
finish off the day. It wasn’ all work though… on days off, there were trips to Galveston, San Antonio, and NBA Basketball
games! Liz Brigham would like to extend her sincere thanks to the sponsors who helped to make this training camp
possible: “ With the help of my generous sponsors and their generous contributions I was able to experience Spring
Training camp with the Manitoba canoe and kayak team in Texas for one month. This training camp was an amazing
experience. I was able to improve tremendously in my sport of high kneel canoeing, including my speed, racing time,
balance and endurance. Aside from training and sightseeing I became really close friends with a lot of my teammates,
which is really important to me. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my sponsors Roger Burns; Century 21, Easy
Living Shop, and Fort Garry Industries for their generous contributions and helping me take advantage of a once in
lifetime opportunity” Whether you are interested in recreational or competitive paddling, drop by the Manitoba Canoe &
Kayak Centre at 80 Churchill Drive to see if you’ like to become involved!

                Your NDP Candidate in
                Winnipeg South Centre
     Dear Friends and Neighbours:

     As a resident of Riverview, I am very pleased to be your NDP candidate in the coming Federal Election. Like
     you, I am frustrated with years of Liberal and Conservative governments that have reduced funding for
     Medicare, given billion dollar tax breaks to corporations and have been careless with taxpayers’money. I
     believe it is time for honest, active representation and I am committed to working hard to provide that. In the
     coming weeks I encourage you to examine the record of the Federal Liberals and consider who is best able to
     hold them accountable in the House of Commons.

     Please feel free to give us a call if you have questions, concerns, or would like to help on the campaign: 982-
     8120. I look forward to talking with you on the doorstop.

     Warm Regards,

     James Allum
