NDP ANNOUNCES CAUCUS, CRITIC POSITIONS

NDP Leader Wab Kinew announced caucus and critic roles for NDP MLAs today.

“Our team will stand up for everyday Manitobans, and for the issues they care about: good jobs, quality health care close to home, and a future in this province we can all look forward to. I’m proud and humbled to lead a team reflects the diversity of Manitobans. We are committed to working hard every day to serve them.”
