NDP Calls for New Emergency Room

Winnipeg, MB — St. Boniface NDP Candidate Blandine Tona, alongside NDP Leader Wab Kinew and Health Critic Andrew Swan, called for the building of a new Emergency Room at the St. Boniface Hospital, and pledged her support for training and hiring more nurses.

“The Pallister government’s deep cuts to our healthcare system, including closing three Winnipeg ERs, has caused chaos for front line workers, patients and families,” said Tona. “The NDP is the only party able to stand up to Pallister’s healthcare cuts - and we are saying loud and clear St.Boniface Hospital needs a new ER.”

Province Should Step Up On Addictions, Transit

Pallister asleep at the switch, not dealing with pressing issues: Kinew

Winnipeg, MB – NDP Leader Wab Kinew welcomed action on public safety and transit announced by Mayor Bowman in his State of the City Address today. Missing in action were any concrete initiatives from Brian Pallister to partner with the City of Winnipeg to electrify transit or stop the meth and opioids crisis.

Wab Kinew Launches Health Care Tour

Join Wab as we visit communities and neighbourhoods to talk health care. While Pallister pushes through cuts that are making life harder for Manitobans, we will take what we hear to chart a new direction for our health care system. Starting in Winnipeg, and then moving out to communities around the province through the winter, we hope to see you there.
