The Emergencies Act 100 per cent needed to be used during that horrible time. Those people terrorized the residents ,which has led to long-term health problems and PTSD. If it hadn’t been enacted, it would likely still be going on. I think that how it all ended was the best-case scenario under the circumstances. I am all for peaceful protest, but there was NOTHING peaceful about those protests.
I have been a public school teacher since 2006. Things were not good in 2006. They were not good in 2014. They are not good in 2022. The NDP or PC hasn’t mattered. The Manitoba Teachers’ Society is nothing more than a toe on the NDP’s foot. MTS does not care about kids, regardless of being deft at pretending. They don’t even care about teachers unless they are loyal NDP/MTS followers. The system is an absolute mess, and kids who are going to school for the right reasons, and know how to behave suffer the most. I didn’t agree with all of Bill 64, but some of it was necessary. I was shunned by some teachers who didn’t like my opinions on Bill 64. Yes, some teachers are bullies. Very low turnout throughout Manitoba for trustee elections prove that trustees are nothing more than useless, single-issue relics of a past era. They represent their own selfish interests, and nothing more. What kind of a democracy do we really have when teachers in the trenches have to keep quiet or remain anonymous?
