THERE HAVE BEEN VERY FEW galvanizing moments throughout this whole COVID-19 pandemic — and that’s one reason Brian Pallister got his moment in the sun this week.

Pallister is the premier of Manitoba, the province that, per capita, has been the hardest hit by the pandemic’s second wave.

Manitoba has extremely strict lockdown protocols in place right now because of the rampant spread of the virus.

With limited exceptions, no one is allowed to open the doors of their homes to anyone who doesn’t already live there.
