The 93rd annual Winter Session kicked off today, beginning with great excitement, and cumulating in a rousing debate! The opening ceremonies began with inspiring words from our Lieutenant Governor, Sachit Mehra, who is an alumnus of the Youth Parliament of Manitoba.
The bill debated today was the Research Integrity Act, presented by the Minister of Labour, Ryan Sherbo. This bill seeks to make corporate research and development more ethical and more focused on long-term social benefits. A government committee would establish research guidelines and target goals and would distribute funding to businesses that follow them.
Tomorrow’s debates will include The Glass Ceiling Act, The Healthcare Initiative Act, The Business Ethics Act and the Artistic Integrity Act.
