Kevin believes that it is labour’s role to be an active participant in the political process, to advocate and push governments to do more to help working families. The MFL continues to fight for working families on a number of fronts, including advocating to make Manitoba’s minimum wage a living wage at $15-an-hour and taking the Provincial Government to court over its unconstitutional legislation that disregards collective bargaining rights by mandating wage freezes for over 120,000 public sector workers.

As a long-time activist in the New Democratic Party, Kevin currently serves as Selkirk Constituency Vice President, and has served on the party’s Provincial Executive, as a constituency president, and as co-chair of the party’s constitutional committee. Kevin believes in the importance of the labour movement working with the NDP to engage people to be more politically active and involved in our communities.
