The Manitoba NDP is excited to report significant growth in its membership following the 90 day cutoff for Leadership 2017, Provincial Secretary Keith Bellamy said today.

"Our membership has grown to now include over 8,000 New Democrats from across the province," said Bellamy. "With thousands of returning and new supporters signing memberships, it's clear there is growing excitement for Leadership 2017 and the future of our party."

Thank You!

Dear Friends,

We made it! We walked and knocked every door in this constituency. We sat with our seniors and heard their incredible stories. We held ceremony with our young Indigenous activists and met them at the Bell Tower. We raised flags for Pride, and Filipino Independence, and we listened to as many people as we could find, to share their thoughts and hopes about Point Douglas, the NDP, and the future of our constituency.

Pallister Government Failing in Its Obligation to Support Inclusion

The Pallister Government is ignoring its commitment to the most vulnerable Manitobans by not providing support to new applicants through the Child Care Inclusion Support Program, said NDP Families Critic Nahanni Fontaine.

“The Minister is obstructing families’ access to critical supports and forcing parents of children with special needs to make hard decisions,” Fontaine said. “The Pallister government is failing parents and children who need our support the most.”

NDP Statement: Misericordia Urgent Care Centre

In response to the looming overnight closure of Misericordia Urgent Care, please accept the following statement on behalf of Official Opposition Health Critic, Matt Wiebe:

We are now seeing the consequences of the disruption and disorganization caused for front-line workers by Pallister’s cuts to our health care system. Pallister and his Ministers can no longer deny or evade the fact that their irresponsible and ill-conceived plan is having an impact on access to patient care for thousands of Manitobans.
