Congrats to our second MAHCP Window Sticker contest winner
New year, new winner!
Congratulations to Lisa Thibeault, an MAHCP Member Advocate, for being our second Window Sticker contest winner, for the month of December.
The Window Sticker contest is open to all MAHCP members and the monthly prize is a $50 gift card of the winner’s choice.
Here’s how to enter: Please place this sticker in a safe, unobtrusive part of your vehicle’s windows, take a selfie of yourself (or ask a friend to snap a pic) with the sticker visible, and send it into firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to win a gift card.
For those who sent in a picture but were not selected, your name stays in the pot for the following month, so those who entered after October’s AGM and through December still have a chance to win.
The goal of this contest is to increase our visibility day-to-day among our fellow Winnipeggers around the city and beyond the Perimeter.
We’re planning on keeping this contest going over the next few months, so enter as soon as you can for more chances to win. The January winner will be announced during the first week of February, and so on.
There will be stickers available at upcoming site meetings with MAHCP President Bob Moroz. Please visit our website mahcp.ca often to view our calendar, located right on our home page. Events will be added as meeting rooms are booked.
In addition, members can pick up stickers at the MAHCP office located at 101-1500 Notre Dame Ave. from Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Friesen told the Free Press Tuesday doctors will be expected to abide by a government policy that all public-sector workers undergo pay freezes for two years, followed by increases no greater than 0.75 per cent in the third year and one per cent in Year 4 of any collective agreement.
The legislative assembly passed Bill 28 to implement the government's public-sector pay regime in 2017. Doctors were included within the provisions of the bill. But the Progressive Conservatives have yet to proclaim it, so it is not yet law.
A coalition of 25 labour unions — not including Doctors Manitoba — is fighting the bill in the courts. A hearing is set to begin in November.
Manitoba's nearly 3,000 doctors will have to do their part to help the province overcome a stubbornly high operating deficit, Health Minister Cameron Friesen says. A four-year contract between the pro...
