Universities and Colleges are a launching pad for students

Universities and colleges play a really important part in launching students on careers.  We know how important this is from the evidence that students having a college or university education are more likely to find and keep jobs.  The difference a university or college education makes is substantial.  And in today's COVID-19 haunted world where more people are working from home, it is the college and university educated people who are being more successful in working from home.

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."

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
