It Wendy Cox in Vancouver and James Keller in Calgary today. On Tuesday, MANITOBA show rest of Western Canada what will happen if cajoling, encouraging, warning and begging by premiers and Public Health officials for people to refrain from risky gatherings go unheeded. MANITOBA announced it is shutting down parts of its economy starting Thursday, limiting Non-essential retail outlets and restaurants to delivery and curbside pickup only. Churches will not be allowed to hold In-person Services and bars, museums and theatres will have to close. Recreational activities will be suspended and people will be forbidden from social gatherings with anyone from outside their household. Restrictions are expected to be in place for four weeks at least. MANITOBA leads all other provinces in per-capita active cases. Intensive-Care beds in the Province are running close to capacity and there is widespread community transmission of novel coronavirus. The province has lost the ability to reduce case numbers simply by targeting specific areas such as bars and restaurants, its Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Brent Roussin, say. Our test positivity rate is up. We were seeing a lot of Community-Base transmission, so now we just have to reduce contacts, period, Dr. Roussin say. Dr. Roussins ' counterpart in British Columbia didnt go quite that far. Dr. Bonnie Henry, along with Health Minister Adrian Dix, held a rare Saturday news conference to announce NEW restrictions that include banning gatherings outside of Persons immediate household. NEW rules were also place for recreation, with yoga studios and spin classes being shut down. NEW orders are in place for two weeks, but could be extended if necessary. They apply only to the Lower Mainland, which includes the Vancouver area and its suburbs, Surrey and Fraser Valley. But Dr. Henry avoided veering the Province into kind of lockdown experience in Spring. She noted that while exercise classes would no longer be permit, One-ON-One sessions with personal trainer remain okay as long as COVID protocols are exercise. She also clarify that household might include people who are part of the regular routine, including immediate family members or close friend. Dr. Henry encourages people to patronize restaurants that are strictly following protocols. Still, Premier John Horgan was blunt on Monday after a weekend that saw 998 NEW cases over a two-Day period. There were a further 525 cases overnight Monday. Mr. Horgan said if people are willing to do their part with such measures, then alternative-more comprehensive measures like those of Spring-would be likely. That end result if we start to see these numbers come down, he told reporters. Our objective is to make sure that our economy can remain open, he add, but it is going to require people to get with the program and there whole bunch of people that are not abiding by the minimalist rules we had in place. Alberta has been setting its own records for COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations, which remain among the highest rates in Canada.

Quebec

David McLaughlin is a former provincial deputy minister of intergovernmental affairs, federal Conservative chief of staff, and was campaign manager for Manitoba Progressive Conservative Party in 2016 and 2019. As Canadas premiers gather Monday in Toronto, there will be no shortage of topics to discuss. But one topic, Quebec Bill 21, which bans wearing of religious symbols by designated public-sector workers such as teachers and police, has been banned from the formal agenda. Base on the principle of separation of church and state, Bill 21 would prohibit people from wearing a crucifix necklace or headscarf on the job. Only one Premier, Brian Pallister of Manitoba, has spoken out strongly and consistently against Bill 21. He introduced a motion in the Legislature, passed unanimously, affirming opposition of all MLAs to any law that seeks to unjustifiably limit religious freedoms of citizens, including passing law that unjustifiably deny individuals the right to wear religious clothing or symbols of ones choice. Last week, that opposition gained national notoriety with the placement of pointed French language ads in Quebec daily newspapers by Manitoba citing 21 reasons to feel at home in Manitoba, featuring a photo of a Muslim woman wearing a hijab. Quebec Premier Francois Legault responded tartly, suggesting Mr. Pallister spend ad money on French-language services and, by way, keep Winnipeg Jets hockey players in Manitoba, before you start asking Quebeckers to move there. Premier Pallister was unrepentant. If you are not willing to defend other rights and freedoms, do not expect them to defend yours. He state in the Legislature. Something ugly and unjust is happening right now in Quebec. Manitobas Progressive Conservative premiers have had mixed history when it comes to Charter Rights and Quebec. Sterling Lyon was long holdout against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms during constitutional negotiations of early 1980s, citing the supremacy of legislatures. Gary Filmon was public skeptic of recognizing Quebec as a distinct society throughout Meech Lake negotiations of late 1980s. Mr. Pallisters opposition is grounded in neither of these shibboleths. It is an unapologetic defence of individual rights and freedoms and how they reinforce Canadian unity. It spring from unique Prairie conservatism that combines libertarian individualism with Progressive societal values of community. Turn out, he is one of the few-maybe only-practising proponents of this active Progressive conservatism in the Canadian Conservative movement. Neither federal Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer, nor Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, has expressed anything close to Mr. Pallisters ' level of criticism. Mr. Scheer was hunting seats in Quebec in the federal election and Mr. Kenney hopes to get a pipeline through the province. Meanwhile, Premier Doug Ford hastened to assure Premier Legault that the unanimous motion in the Ontario Legislature criticizing Bill 21 sprung from the opposition side and not his government. Quebec political clout in Federation is, well, distinct. Its outsized influence has shaped Canada from the Confederation. Key to majority government only work in Quebec door.
