I'm sure you have all heard on the news about the open letter that was sent
to the premier by a group of physicians regarding the province's COVID-19
response. I received a notice yesterday that they are seeking more
signatures from researchers and academics. If you are interested, the
information for signing the letter is provided below.
With all best wishes to you and your families,

Subject: Open letter to premier
Caution: This message was sent from outside the University of Manitoba.
Thank you for signing the letter of concern to Premier Brian Pallister. We
have attached the initial letter with 202 signatures for your records. It is
heartening to see so many physicians, researchers, and other members of the
healthcare community coming together to advocate for the citizens of
Manitoba. Since it was sent on November 1, the letter has helped to raise
awareness of the crisis our healthcare system is facing and to stimulate
discussion amongst the public and politicians. Our sincere hope is not
simply that the letter will attract attention, but that it will be a
catalyst for increased strategic investments in the resources that are
urgently needed to respond to the COVID pandemic and to save lives.
There were 202 signatories on the letter submitted to Premier Pallister
Sunday evening. We have subsequently heard from more than 150 individuals
who have also signed the letter. We would like everyone to have the
opportunity for their voice to be heard and counted. To that end, we plan
to resubmit a letter to Premier Pallister with the updated names. If you
have contacted us to sign on but do not see your name on the letter attached
here, do not worry, if you are receiving this email from
manitobadoctorsgroupoutgoing(a)gmail.com, you have been counted. Anyone who
is interested in signing the letter and has not yet done so can send an
email to <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
manitobadoctorsgroup(a)gmail.com.The email should clearly state your name,
advanced degree(s), field of expertise, and email address, as well as your
desire to be added to the letter.

The response to this letter has been overwhelming. We have received
