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

Standing up for Seniors

Yesterday in the Legislature I  asked the Minister of Health questions about the care of seniors in personal care homes in Manitoba.   I specfically called for the Minister to increase the training and staffing requirements for personal care homes in Manitoba to bring them up to date.   My questions, the Minister's comments and the Speaker's interjection are below:  Personal-Care-Home  Improvements - Need for Upgrades to Standards and Training Hon. Jon  Gerrard   (River Heights): Madam Speaker, we're very concerned this government is not adapting to the reality of caring for seniors who are living longer. Seniors living in our personal-care homes today have much more challenging health-care conditions than those who were in similar homes even five years ago, and yet the staffing formula, or minimal personnel requirement, is over 20 years old. Too few care aides and nurses are adequately trained to look after residents with dementia and multiple chronic health conditi

Premier Pallister is wrong when he says no one could have predicted the speed and severity of the second wave

Premier Brian Pallister is just wrong in saying yesterday that "Nobody could have predicted the degree to which COVID came fast."  He was referring to the speed and severity of the COVID-19 virus spreading this fall in Manitoba.   Contrary to what the Premier says, many people were predicting the Second Wave of the pandemic  would  be worse than the first.  Historically this has often happened with pandemics in the past.  In Manitoba in 2009 the H1N1 pandemic was worse in the second wave than during the first wave.  The speed of the pandemic was not a surprise.  COVID-19 infections are well known to rise exponentially when adequate containment measures are not in place.   In jurisdictions like Italy and New York as well as elsewhere we had examples of sudden explosions of cases when the spread of the virus was increasing exponentially.  There was already evidence to suggest that the virus would be worse in winter months, and that spread would be faster as people moved indoors
