Pallister ignores the North, puts youth and Indigenous communities at risk

Manitoba New Democrats are keeping government accountable to its promises and advocating for investments that build the economy and bring hope to the North, Indigenous and Municipal Relations critic Amanda Lathlin said today.

“Investments in the North are investments in hope, especially for our Northern youth,” said Lathlin. “Projects like the East Side Road and Hydro developments are more than asphalt on the ground and lines on poles. They represent jobs, training and a brighter future. I am deeply concerned that Pallister’s lack of commitment to the North will harm many communities.”

Pallister Moving Jobs and Resources Out of the North: Lindsey

The Pallister government is revealing their hidden agenda to ignore Northern jobs, roads and families, MLA for Flin Flon Tom Lindsey said today.

The Pallister government is dissolving the East Side Road Authority, putting jobs and economic growth in the North at risk. The Manitoba NDP has called on the government to maintain the annual capital commitment and seek federal cost-sharing for the initiative.
