It’s spring! The snow is melting and the geese are returning. Is change in the air?
Based on today’s Decision ’16 debate, Progressive Conservative leader Brian Pallister is acting like a premier in waiting – staying to the script, getting in the odd dig and giving answers focused on the shortcomings of the premier, NDP leader Greg Selinger.
Listen to the answers on why they want the job. Do they connect with you?
Here is an exchange on organ donation. Leaders of the lung, kidney and other associations want to see organ donation become mandatory. It’s called presumed consent. After a certain period of time, it would be mandatory to donate your organs upon death unless you fill out a refusal card. Who actually answered the question?
The premier defended his record on emergency room wait times. Liberal leader Rana Bokhari and Brian Pallister say Selinger has failed to deliver on several healthcare promises.
Selinger defended himself knowing he would be the targeted by both opponents. Bokhari did well in many parts of the debate but showed a lack of knowledge in some policy areas. She did connect with many voters in the way she approaches topics. Pallister stuck to the script and knows his stuff. He’s known at times for getting angry. He didn’t show that at all.
