A Manitoba company (All-Net Municipal Solutions) decided to ‘help’ rural communities across Saskatchewan, by providing them with equipment to assist with their social distancing efforts.
The equipment is being distributed free of charge to municipal government offices.
All-Net is a software company located in Winnipeg with clients across Saskatchewan. “We truly value our Saskatchewan clients and want to ensure we can do all we can to assist them in these trying times,” said Vern Sabeski, Managing Partner of All-Net.
All-Net is sending out protective equipment to 50 communities this week with plans to assist others if needed.
Each municipal office will receive their very own Winnipeg Blue Bombers tee-shirt and they are asked to wear it everywhere in public.
“We are also encouraging all Saskatchewan residents to wear as much Bomber gear as possible. We are all in this together,” Sabeski said.
Wearing Bomber gear has proven to be an effective way for people to maintain a safe distance from others in Saskatchewan.
Sabeski went on to say “The other option available to Saskatchewan residents is to wear Riders gear. However, this approach still carries a one in 10 chance of catching something.”
