After a successful first day of ceremony and rousing debate, Manitoba’s youth prepare to return to the legislature early Friday morning.
Among the bills being debated is the Progressive Energy Development Act. This act seeks to phase out the sale of all gasoline-powered vehicles in Canada by 2028 in favor of alternative energy. Joseph Broda, Minister of Finance and the bill’s presenter, aims to promote innovation in Canadian industry by incentivizing companies to develop green technology.
We will also be debating the Social Development Act, the Career Education Act, and the Healthy Society Act.
