Games co-chair Clayton Swanton says they are ready to hit the ground running with recruitment efforts for volunteers.

"We want people to let us know that they are willing and able to help us out that week.  And leading up to it, even if they are not around that week, they can still reach out.  There is stuff leading up to the games that we can use help with."

The 2024 Manitoba Summer Games takes place August 11th to 17th in Dauphin.

Games coordinator Bryan Mintenko says they need around 1,000 volunteers to help successfully stage the games.

"We have a very strong group of committee chairs already, about 70 or 80 volunteers that are doing the planning stages of the games.  But what we really need are people at each venue and at each event during games time, so that is about a thousand people."   

You can register as a volunteer at the signup booth at City Hall, as well as through a link on the province's Summer Games website. 

Games officials will also be at several events over the next few months to sign up prospective volunteers.

A recall has been made on a handful of products after a deadly listeria outbreak in the US.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued this recall on President's Choice Mexican-style Street Corn pre-packed Salads that have been found to contained listeria contamination in the cheese it used.

The salad kits are available across Canada and the United States, and the recall was first issued stateside on Monday this week.

The products affected will have a best-before date up to and including February 19th.

So far, the Listeriosis cases have only been reported in the states, but the recall is being made out of an abundance of caution.

Listeria is a bacteria that can result in listeriosis, which can manifest as fever, muscle aches, nausea, tiredness, vomiting, and diarrhea, according to the FDA. More serious symptoms can include convulsions, confusion, and loss of balance.

according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, this is a Class 1 recall, meaning it has a high risk of serious health outcomes if consumed.

The 2024 crown lands auction is to be put on hold as the province is seeking a thorough review of the program.

The Agricultural Crownlands Program has seen many changes over the past 5 years, and Ag Minister Ron Kostyshyn plans to thoroughly examine it before going forward.

Minister Kostyshyn is looking to meet with both producers and organizations to learn the issues that matter at all levels of the cattle industry, saying "We want to do it right".

Notably, this will not impact short-term one-year agreements, and the Minister added that vacant crown land will be open for grazing as it has been in previous poor hay years.

While a timeline has yet to be confirmed for this review, a year of review could lead to more clarity and a more satisfying conclusion for all involved.
