Bakcgrounder for Guest Speaker


We're honored to have Donnan McKienna join us as our guest speaker this week. Donnan is running for a seat in the Provincial election in the riding of Swan River. His dedication to public service and his passion for building stronger communities make him an ideal guest to inspire and inform us about his vision for the future of Manitoba. Don't miss the chance to hear from a candidate who is committed to making a difference.

Donnan spoke at our Swan River tour presentation, and was very well received, I believe you will find his talk informative and entertaining!

Donnan McKenna resides in the RM of Mountain with his wife and family.

Donnan’s 30-year career with the RCMP included provincial, national, and international experience in both front-line policing and command capacities. He is a crime reduction and family violence expert with experience dealing with government policy and system changes. His volunteer work includes several board positions and security operations.

Donnan retired from the RCMP in 2019 as the Officer in Charge of the Grande Prairie RCMP Detachment where he oversaw a 30% reduction in crime.

“The Keystone Party offers a new way forward. It is based on respect, listening, and empowering Manitobans. Keystone will put the power back in the hands of the people, where it rightfully belongs.”

Let's come together as a community to make a positive impact. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday and working hand in hand to build a stronger, more united Manitoba.

What Our Logo Means

The logo for Manitoba Stronger Together incorporates elements that symbolize unity, community, and the strength of the bison.

  1. Bison Icon: Is a silhouette of a stylized representation of a bison, symbolizing strength, resilience, and unity. The bison is depicted in a side stance, representing progress and moving together as a community.

  2. The vertical stripes: represent that the movement includes all people from all walks of life, all beliefs and all political affiliations.

  3. The Horizontal Connecting Lines: across the bison represent the connections and interdependence of community members, emphasizing the concept of being stronger together.

  4. Blue Tones: The blue in the logo design represents growth, harmony, and the natural beauty of Manitoba's landscapes.

  5. Dynamic Font: We choose a strong and modern bold font for the organization's name "Manitoba Stronger Together" to convey a sense of confidence and forward-thinking.


Let us continue to unite, ignite our passions, and work towards building a stronger and united Manitoba. Together, we will shape the future we want and deserve.

Keep an eye out for our next meeting announcement, and let us walk this transformative journey as one!

Stay united, stay empowered, and stay strong!

In solidarity,

The Manitoba Stronger Together Team
