Federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May is speaking in three different communities across Manitoba.

She made stops in Brandon, Portage la Prairie, and Winnipeg.

The events are a part of her Community Matters Tour that can stop in all of Canada’s major cities ahead of this fall’s federal election.

May answered questions from a full house on the Park Theater on Osborne Street this afternoon.

After spending a day within the province, she says Manitoba has been vocal about many alternative federal issues.

“Individuals are concerned about our health care system, and the way we maintain it as a public health care system, what can we do about rising drug prices?”

She fielded questions from audience members as a part of the event.

“In all places we go across Canada, we hear that Canadians want solutions to the climate crisis,” she explained.

She also had a robust opinion about pollution in Lake Winnipeg.

May said that for years, the federal government has failed to seek out a correct clean up solution, and that making a plan for one in all Canada’s largest bodies of fresh water is becoming more essential.
