Is Manitoba currently on a course you agree with?
The Manitoba government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been bad -- just like their response to the climate crisis.
The PCs have cut spending on important services. They've pressured provincial government workers to take unpaid days off. They're going ahead with more reopening without adequate public health measures in place. They're trying to entice people off federal emergency benefits and into bad jobs.
💚Demand a Just Recovery from COVID-19 in Manitoba that prioritizes people and the planet!💚
Join in for three simultaneous rallies at MLA's offices across the city to send a clear message that Manitobans want a just recovery from covid-19 that puts people before profit and that strengthens our communities to deal with the climate crisis.
