The Government of Manitoba is seeking feedback on COVID-19 enforcement and a possible curfew for Winnipeg.
A telephone town hall on Thursday night will be the first in a series of engagement initiatives from the province.
“We know Manitobans have valuable insights and will provide great input, and I look forward to working with Manitobans to help make these important decisions together," Premier Brian Pallister says in a statement.
Starting this week, the province is hosting weekly town halls. This week's theme is COVID public health and emergency order enforcement.
“Our number one priority is protecting Manitobans, and we want to stay connected and hear directly from Manitobans, even when we must stay physically apart."
The town hall will also discuss a possible curfew for the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region and possible enforcement. The discussion begins at 7:35 p.m.
The province has not announced who the provincial officials on the call will be.
On EngageMB, there is more information on how to register for the town hall, as well as the online survey Pallister mentioned at Monday's press conference regarding a possible curfew for Winnipeg's metro area. This website has a specific #RestartMB Pandemic Response System page for issues related to the pandemic.
The province says future Thursday town halls could discuss enforcement practices for COVID-19 restrictions, vulnerable populations and COVID-19, and personal care homes and COVID-19
"Plans for future stakeholder roundtable discussions will be announced in the coming weeks," the province says in a statement.
The province says they have seen success with previous telephone town halls. They say throughout the summer they saw 100,000 people participate in town halls.
