Legislative & Judicial Fun!

Hanging out at the Legislative Building

Hanging out at the Legislative Building

What a great day we had at the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba and the Law Courts! We were able to take in Provincial court, Queen’s Bench, and even the Manitoba Court of Appeal. We were also able to sneak into Question Period, chat with the Minister of Education, and even meet the Lieutenant Governor.

This was all fun, but let’s see if we we were able to learn anything or apply or theoretical knowledge from the curriculum.

Here is a link to the Provincial Government’s curriculum for this course: Canada in the Contemporary World. Sift through the outcomes and see if you can identify certain elements from the document that you observed at either the Courts or the Legislative Building.

Below, write about what you observed and provide examples.

Minister of Education, James Allum.

Try to prove that you have achieved these outcomes which the people of Manitoba want you to learn. Secondly, what surprised you or challenged your assumptions at either place? How as the Legislative Assembly different from City Council?

Write a comment below. Feel free to respectively comment on what each other are sharing. Remember to provide concrete examples from our amazing trip!
