The Pallister government has once again shown it has no vision for the future by forcing Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries to cancel a new headquarters that would have helped to revitalize downtown Winnipeg, NDP MLA Ted Marcelino said today.
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.”
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.”
Job figures released by Statistics Canada reveal an alarming drop in full-time employment under the Pallister government and its regressive policies, NDP MLA James Allum said today.
The Manitoba NDP is urging the Pallister government to give families more time to respond in a thoughtful way to the possible lifting of the ban on cosmetic use of pesticides, MLA Rob Altemeyer said today.
