Campaign Politics - Manitoba


CPAC’s Gosia Sawicka Fazio reports on the provincial campaign in Manitoba, where the NDP is trying to extend their reign for another four years.

A 2013 decision to raise the provincial sales tax remains unpopular. Combined with an internal challenge to the party’s leadership, it's made this campaign a challenging one for Greg Selinger and the NDP. The Progressive Conservative party led by Brian Pallister has produced a lengthy list of campaign promises to woo voters. Among them is a promise to reverse the sales tax hike. Hoping to capitalize on the popularity of federal leader Justin Trudeau, the provincial Liberals under lawyer Rana Boukhari are campaigning on a pledge to fund all-day kindergarten. The Liberals, with only one seat at dissolution, hope to make significant gains.

Voters go to the polls in Manitoba on April 19.
