Winnipeg, MB – Today the House rose with the Pallister government laying out a plan for deeper cuts to services and less support for Manitoba families.
The Premier started a new session with a Speech from the Throne that targeted health care and education for more cuts and a lackluster State of the Province address that failed to invest in economic growth. Instead, the Premier continues to pour money into the pockets of high-priced accounting firms and American consultants. The Premier is silent, however, when it comes to the most important issues facing our province.
Manitoba NDP Leader Wab Kinew and NDP MLA Andrew Swan introduced Bill 201 The Health Services Insurance Amendment Act (Personal Care Homes Staffing Guidelines) in the House today. They were joined by Manitoba Nurses Union President Darlene Jackson and long term care nurse Karen Jantzen.
Join us as we celebrate the 1969 election of Manitoba's first NDP Government led by Premier Ed Schreyer, with tributes from Hon Premier Gary Doer and Wab Kinew.

In June 1969 Ed Schreyer's New Democrats formed the first NDP government in Manitoba, a turning point in our province's history.
Since this 1969 breakthrough, the NDP have been elected and re-elected in Provinces across Canada and federally as the Official Opposition.
Governing is about choices. Each day, government makes choices about who will benefit and who they will prioritize.
We know next week this government will have a throne speech in which they choose to make more cuts. We are here to present the better choices we would make to help Manitoba families.
