MP Bergen Celebrates Manitoba Sunflower Festival

Altona, MB – On Saturday, July 28, Candice Bergen, Conservative House Leader and MP for Portage-Lisgar, took part in the Manitoba Sunflower Festival Parade in Altona.

“It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces on the route,” said Bergen. “Altona is a beautiful town with such friendly and supportive people like Bona, Verna, Peyton, and Anastasia, who volunteered along the parade.”

MP Bergen also attended the Mayor’s Luncheon where she had a chance to congratulate Altona’s own track and field athletes Curtis Loewen and Taylor Friesen. The two athletes will be competing at the Special Olympics Canada 2018 Summer Games in Nova Scotia this week.
