Questionnaire Response

Tony Hill - Selkirk

1. Why did you decide to run in the Manitoba election?

Beautiful Lake Winnipeg is under siege by phosphorous pollution. Experts say if this pollution is left unaddressed, it will render our lake unsafe for swimming and it will have devastating consequences on our fishing industry. As citizens of the Interlake and Selkirk Riding, we have a great responsibility to our lake. We take in its beauty. We kayak its waters. And we play along its shores. It gives us so much, and yet we take it for granted. To those of us who live next door to Lake Winnipeg as its closest neighbour, we cannot take it for granted any longer. It is in danger and it needs our help.

Moreover, the global climate crisis is the biggest threat we face.  The time for action—real action—on addressing climate change is now. As a firefighter, I know the value of arriving to the scene and taking action as quickly as possible. There can be no more delay. Acknowledging our climate crisis is not alarmist-thinking, it is forward thinking. And, taking action on our climate crisis is not anti-progress, it is solution focused. These are the reasons I am running in this election.

2. Why should a voter consider electing you to represent them?

Since retiring as a Captain with the Winnipeg department a year ago, I have discovered a new calling: protecting the environment and saving Lake Winnipeg and the Interlake’s wetlands. Throughout my career as a firefighter, I lived and worked by a code of honour. As the Green Party candidate for the Selkirk Riding, you can count on me.

When I watch my seventeen year old daughter studying for exams and preparing for university, I can’t help but worry for her future and the future of her generation. I believe the future is Green and I hope you’ll join me in the fight to save our planet.

3. What key issue(s) / topic(s) will you stand for in your role as MLA, and why are these important to you?

The Green Party has a well-prepared platform, including a proposed and costed-out guaranteed income program, universal child care, and a fully-developed plan for reducing carbon emissions and growing the green economy. The Green Party is neither left, nor right. We are forward.

Rickie Fowler, Scottie Scheffler tied for lead in desert

January 17, 2020

Winnipeg Free Press - He's ahead of schedule, shooting an 8-under 64 on Friday at PGA West's Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course for a share of the second-round lead with Scottie Scheffler. Playing in the same third of the field as Fowler in the pro-am event, Scheffler also opened with rounds of 65 and 64. Fowler and Scheffler will play PGA West's Stadium Course — also the site of the final round — on Saturday. Andrew Landry was a stroke out of the lead after a 64 at La Quinta. Defending champion Adam Long was 5 under after a 70 on the Nicklaus Course.

Will Henry’s runs or Mahomes’ passes decide AFC champion?

January 16, 2020

Winnipeg Free Press - The Chiefs like to go with five defensive backs, but they might need more bulk on the field against Henry. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)The catalyst, naturally, is QB Patrick Mahomes (17), who was slowed by injuries early and midway in the season. Now that he's healthy, Mahomes is looking like the 2018 league MVP who tore up the NFL. Damien Williams (26) handles the bulk of the run game, and Tennessee has been formidable against the rush. Reid has been masterful in his handling of Mahomes and the schemes that make KC's offence as dangerous as any.

More quarterbacks are using their hands to catches passes

January 10, 2020

Winnipeg Free Press - Coaches aren't shy about drawing up trick plays that let quarterbacks use their hands for more than throwing a football. Deshaun Watson caught a 6-yard TD pass from wideout DeAndre Hopkins in a 28-22 win over New England on Dec. 1. Andy Dalton, Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel were the only other quarterbacks to catch passes in 2019 but their receptions came on tipped balls they threw. All of these plays began in shotgun formation because quarterbacks aren't eligible to catch passes if they line up under centre. Drew Brees once caught a TD pass from LaDainian Tomlinson for the San Diego Chargers.

As No. 2 seed, Chiefs on cusp of returning to AFC title game

December 30, 2019

Winnipeg Free Press - Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon III (25) is tackled by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Anthony Hitchens, left, and linebacker Reggie Ragland (59) during the first half of an NFL football game in Kansas City, Mo., Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019. - The Kansas City Chiefs were inches away from playing in the Super Bowl a year ago and, to many in their locker room, the sting of that overtime loss to New England has served as motivation to return to the AFC title game this season. That means they get the week off while the Patriots are forced to play a wild-card game, and ensures a divisional-round game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium the next weekend. The Patriots still have Tom Brady, and the Texans already have gotten the best of Kansas City once this season. STOCK DOWNWide receiver Sammy Watkins had just one catch for 8 yards against Los Angeles, though part of that had to do with the fact that Kansas City rarely had the ball.

Vikings: DT Armon Watts and OT Rashod Hill each left in the fourth quarter with an unspecified left leg injury. Vikings: Play a wild-card round game next weekend at either New Orleans, San Francisco or Seattle, depending on the result of the 49ers-Seahawks game later on Sunday night.
