An upcoming political policy summit in Winnipeg will feature some big name draws to speak out about how to move Manitoba forward through policy change.
Michelle Rempel, minister of State for Western Diversification, and Treaty Commissioner Jamie Wilson will headline Manitoba Could Be on June 13.
Manitoba Forward — a non-partisan group — is putting on the one-day event, which will also include urban planner Rob Galston and public policy expert Brian Kelcey as panelists.
The idea is to engage the public through a panel of experts on how to improve the province. Those who can’t attend can weigh in on social media.
“The key to good government is thoughtful public policy and public engagement in crafting it,” said Dave Shorr, executive director of Manitoba Forward. “We urge not only the provincial government but all four political parties in upcoming election to engage Manitobans when developing their platforms.”
Participants can attend The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre in-person or live stream the summit at ManitobaCouldBe.ca.
