Pallister Government Must Explain Future of East Side Road

The Pallister government has just laid off some 80 workers effective Nov. 25 with no clear plan in place to continue the work that would connect the communities on the East Side Road or grow the regional economy, NDP MLA Jim Maloway said today.

“The government has a responsibility to explain to Manitobans and especially the residents of the East Side of Lake Winnipeg whether the road construction project will continue,” Maloway said. “The future of the communities and the jobs that would come from this project are now in limbo.”

Pallister Government Must Stop Dithering And Help Families in The Pas

THE PAS— The Pallister government must work with resource companies to deliver real solutions to help keep the Tolko paper mill open, NDP MLA Amanda Lathlin said today.

“The crisis in The Pas is very real and will be devastating for workers and their families,” Lathlin said. “Our forests are resources that belong to all Manitobans. Government has a clear role in helping families now before they lose their livelihoods and their homes.”
