Lloyd Axworthy endorses Manitoba Liberal Party Platform

Lloyd Axworthy has endorsed our Manitoba Liberal Party Platform - see below: 

Statement by the Hon. Lloyd Axworthy, PC, CC, OM, PhD

As Manitobans head to the polls this Tuesday, they will be weighing a serious choice on the direction of our province as outlined in the ideas and proposals put forward by all the parties.

In making that decision, I ask you to pay special attention to the platform of the Manitoba Liberal Party. It’s a bold blueprint crafted to meet the demanding issues of our day. The Liberal leader Dougald Lamont and his team of vigorous candidates are committed to progressive action that can replace the tired two-party warfare that has plagued this province for too long.

It’s a platform that takes a balanced approach. It commits to serious investments in education, health care, infrastructure and the environment - while also growing the private sector.

On the issue of the environment, Manitoba Liberals were the first to commit to meaningful, immediate action on Lake Winnipeg before one of the world’s largest and most productive body of fresh water reaches a tipping point towards ecocide.

On the issue of climate change - the defining issue of our age - it weds the most ambitious plan of all the parties to make Manitoba carbon neutral by 2030 to practical, achievable steps that will grow the economy.

The Manitoba Liberals have also made it clear that their plan is achievable, and that it applies to all Manitobans, whether they live in Winnipeg, rural or northern Manitoba. And they make the practice of reconciliation a priority of a new legislature. Many people are frustrated and disappointed with the current state of politics. 

We cannot afford to be cynical. We cannot afford to sit out the game, or be divided. At a time when democracy and its institutions are being challenged and eroded around the world, this is an opportunity for renewal and engagement.

The Manitoba Liberal Party have shown they are credible, serious, and deserve your support in the Manitoba election on September 10

Comparison between Manitoba and South Dakota shows dramatic impact of Physical Distancing

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

We need a more precise and detailed provincial plan to address the coronoavirus - Covid-19

With increasing evidence that the coronavirus Covid-19 is spreading globally, it is important that Manitoba have a clear plan to deal with a number of critical issues.  Having a clear plan will reduce people's anxiety and allow people to better plan individually.  So far the Pallister government either has not fully planned for Covid-19, or it has not released its plan.  We put out a press release this morning calling for the release of such a clear plan by the province.  Manitoba Liberals: The Time for a Coronavirus Plan is Now WINNIPEG – With new coronavirus cases emerging in South Korea, Italy and elsewhere around the world, Manitoba Liberals say the Manitoba Government needs to show they are ready with a plan to ensure Manitobans stay as safe as possible in the likely case that the virus reaches Manitoba. The virus has been spreading around the world, with 82,000 cases and nearly 3,000 deaths. While it started in China, there have been recent outbreaks in South Kore
