Manitoba politicians will put their knowledge of global issues to the test in a simulated game show this morning.
The Manitoba Council for International Co-operation is hosting "Are You More Concerned About a Better World Than A Seventh Grader," – a take off of the popular "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader" game show – as part of International Development Week.
Manitoba ministers and MLAs – along with the help of a Grade 7 student – will answer questions about the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
Students from John Pritchard School, Meadows West School, Lockport School and Arthur Day School will offer their brains to Minister of Education, Peter Bjornson, Conservative Leader Hugh McFadyen and Liberal leader Jon Gerrard.
The event, which will be hosted by local radio personality, Ace Burpee, will also feature videos on Manitobans working on international projects helping the UN meet its development goals.
