Naomi and I begin our 24 hour fast at noon today to support children in Manitoba

 Today at noon, Naomi and I will begin a 24 hour fast to support the children of Manitoba, specifically the children who have been or who are now in the care of child and family services.  We will be in the Tipi closest to the Legislature.  Hundreds of millions of dollars were taken by the provincial government from the Children's Special Allowances which were meant for these children.   In some cases this was taking away money put in trust for these children when they aged out of care so that they would have opportunities like going to post-secondary education.   This was wrong.  And now the Pallister government has legislation before the Manitoba Legislature which would prevent any legal action to return this money to these children. I believe the money should be returned to these children and I am supporting a protest organized by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, and specifically by Cora Morgan and the Office of the First Nations Family Advocate.  This protest is in the form of a month long fast - in which many individuals, like myself, each participate in a 24 hour fast leading up to November 5, when the bill is likely to have final consideration in the Legislature.  If you are concerned about what is happening, you can email the Premier to say you object to what he is doing or you can sign up to make a presentation to Bill 2 when it comes to committee.  You can do this by calling 204-945-3636.

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
