Statement by Interim NDP Leader Flor Marcelino on the Passing of Jim Prentice

It is with great sadness that we learned today of the death of Jim Prentice. On behalf of the Manitoba NDP caucus, I want to offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Prentice. Mr. Prentice was a tireless and dedicated worker for the people of Alberta in his time as premier and for all Canadians when he served as a federal cabinet minister. His passing is a great loss, not just for his family and friends, but for all Canadians. He was a true statesman and a great Canadian.

Pallister Government Delays its Own Legislation To Muzzle Voices of Public & MLAs: Lindsey

The Pallister government is intentionally delaying introducing its own anti-labour bill in order to limit the time the public and members of the Legislative Assembly can voice their concerns, NDP MLA Tom Lindsey said today.

“Manitobans deserve a debate on Bill 7,” Lindsey said. “The only reason to delay introducing it is to muzzle the voices of Manitobans and members of the Legislative Assembly who know this anti-labour legislation is going to make it harder for workers to improve conditions in the workplace.”

Manitoba Loses 10,800 Jobs Since May Under Pallister Government’s Watch

Manitoba has lost 10,800 full-time jobs since May under the Pallister government’s watch, according to the latest figures released this morning by Statistics Canada.

“This is a worrisome trend. Every one of those lost jobs represents a real person who now has to rely on Employment Insurance or move out of the province to find work so they can support themselves or their families,” said NDP Interim Leader Flor Marcelino. “Meanwhile, the Pallister government is fixated on firing hundreds of civil servants, freezing the minimum wage and picking fights with organized labour, rather than coming up with a plan to grow the economy and create jobs.”

NDP Leader's Levee


This fall is an important time for our party. Manitobans have assigned us an important role as the Official Opposition, and there is no shortage of work to be done to hold Brian Pallister's Conservatives to account.

In addition, we are preparing for the incredibly important task of selecting our next leader. Robust engagement with members is essential for strengthening local constituencies and our grassroots activism ahead of Convention 2017.

Pallister Government Failing to Stand up For Working Manitobans

The Pallister government has abandoned working families and individuals by refusing to protect their right to be paid a living wage and by undermining long-standing practices that create fairness in the workplace, Interim NDP Leader Flor Marcelino said today.

“This government is showing a disregard for workers who face rising costs for food and to put a roof over their heads,” Marcelino said. “Brian Pallister keeps saying he has a plan to make Manitoba the most improved province but he’s actually making it worse for working individuals and families.”

Pallister Government Undercutting Manitoba’s Affordability Advantage

Manitoba families are in danger of losing their affordability advantage under a Pallister government that has no plan to grow the economy and sits on its hands while costs threaten to rise, NDP Interim Leader Flor Marcelino said today.

“Instead of putting forward real plans to invest in the economy, create jobs and maintain one of the lowest costs of living in the country, the Pallister government is content to conduct endless reviews,” Marcelino said. “We urge the premier to stop ducking his responsibility and instead work on behalf of Manitoba families.”
