Pallister Government Shows Lack of Vision for the Future, no Plan to Grow Economy In Killing Winnipeg Railway Relocation Review

In killing a much-needed review of the economic advantages of moving Winnipeg’s railway lines, the Pallister government is showing a lack of any vision for the future of Manitoba’s capital city, said NDP MLA Nahanni Fontaine.

“This is a government that has no plan to grow the economy or create jobs and now it has passed on an opportunity to help transform the city,” said Fontaine. “There are so many possible advantages in planning for the future of our city, and yet this government is content to live in the past.”

Today’s NDP will boost funding for local roads in Winnipeg

Today’s NDP will boost the province’s share for fixing Winnipeg’s road investments to $65 million a year to help fix potholes and renew local streets, Fort Garry-Riverview NDP candidate James Allum announced today.

“Part of our NDP’s vision for a connected Winnipeg means freeing up City resources to fix local roads and potholes,” Allum said. “Smoother roads mean safer drives for families and less wear and tear on your car. These investments will help us grow Winnipeg for the future.”
