The Executive Council of MAHCP is proud to announce our sponsorship of the 19th Annual Ironman Outdoor Curling Bonspiel!
This bonspiel, which raises much-needed funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, takes place Feb. 1 to 3, 2019, at The Forks on the Red River.
Not only will MAHCP be a sponsor, we will also be fielding a team to participate in the tournament.
This team will be led by MAHCP President Bob Moroz, who is an avid curler when he’s not out in the public fighting for the rights of his members.
Along with Bob, MAHCP is looking for up to five more curlers to play on the team (Ironman allows for four players on the team, plus two spares). These curlers will need to bring their own equipment with them.
If you are an MAHCP member (or a direct family member) who is interested in being on the team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Ironman Bonspiel” in the subject line and your contact information.
Since this is meant to be an enjoyable team event, we’ll be selecting this year’s team on a first-come, first-serve basis.
As the organizers of the Ironman Outdoor Curling Bonspiel say, together we can raise money, make a difference and have fun! More information on their event is available at www.ironmancurling.com
This annual bonspiel has raised over $102,078.50 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. The goal for 2019 is $15,000.
We look forward to seeing our Team MAHCP “hurry hard” for the Heart and Stroke Foundation!

Health Minister Cameron Friesen told media that doctors will also be subject to Bill 28, the Pallister government's wage capping bill, that MAHCP and other unions are fighting in court. Here's an excerpt:
A four-year contract between the province and Doctors Manitoba, the physicians' bargaining agent, is set to expire March 31.
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...
