Sept 16th, Dougald Lamont, Cindy Lamoureux and I had a Caucus meeting to discuss the results of the election and to start preparing for the Legislative session which is coming soon. We are all working well together. Cindy and I are both in strong support of Dougald as our Manitoba Liberal Party Leader.
Manitoba implemented physical distancing measures in mid-March. South Dakota has still not made physical distancing mandatory. The result is a dramatic difference in the incidence of covid-19 viral infections between the two jurisdictions. This graph shows the number of people with Covid-19 infections from March 27 to April 14. Manitoba ( red line ) started leveling off about April 4 and has seen only a small increase in Covid-19 infections since then. South Dakota ( blue line ) has seen a dramatic increase in Covid-19 infections since April 4. Those who are skeptical of the impact of physical distancing in Manitoba should look at this graph! Data are from the Johns Hopkins daily tabulations
