Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is taking criticism for making comments about the physical appearance of the woman who chairs the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce. As he began giving a state of the province speech yesterday, Pallister spoke about Johanna Hurme, an award-winning architect. “I want to thank Johanna for dressing up. I want to thank her for those heels. I notice they are a foot high,”. NDP status of women and justice critic Nahanni Fontaine has called on Pallister to apologize.
