Pallister was asked why the legislature is not holding regular sittings. He noted they have met more than nine other legislatures, Parliament is not holding normal sittings and they are normally on a break at this time of year. He says he doesn’t think the argument works very well that they’re doing anything but being accountable as they’re facing a pandemic, they’re doing that effectively thanks to Manitobans, but the government’s done a lot of things right and they’re going to continue to learn through this process. He notes they’ve now got to focus on getting our province back and that means getting our economy back safely and that’s where their target is going to be for the next few weeks.
Pallister added Manitobans have done a good job so far through this pandemic and should continue to do so as we can beat this thing together.
