Following the extremely difficult times we are going through at the moment, it will be very important for people to have opportunities to learn new knowledge and new skills. There is a lot of interest in people taking on-line courses and a lot of need for people to learn new things so that they are better able to contribute in a society where we may be doing more on line. It has been fascinating for me to talk to high school teachers who are exploring the world of on-line teaching and developing new skills. Having the courses and instructors to help teachers make this transition in real time when the teachers need it is vital. It points to the need for universities and colleges and the need for them to have the funding to be able to fully address the new opportunities and new needs which are present now.
Let us be sure that we are able to launch our young people well, and for those who are older and learning or relearning, to re-launch our older people well in today's world. Cutbacks in university and college funding are the opposite of what is needed today. We need more investment in this area to build a better future for all Manitobans, not less. Manitoba Liberals say to Mr. Pallister "Do not cut funding to Universities and Colleges."
