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.

Pallister Refuses to Support Parental Leave

Today, NDP Bill 211 did not receive the support of Progressive Conservatives.

Bill 211 would have amended maternity and paternity leave legislation in Manitoba, allowing parents to take advantage of new Employment Insurance provisions, amended by the federal government, which now allow parents to extend parental leave benefits over eighteen months, as opposed to the previous twelve months.

New Democrats Stand Against Pallister Cuts

Today the second session of the forty-first Legislature ended with the Pallister government ramming through measures that will damage the future of Manitoba families.

Government legislation will raise tuition for Manitoba students by 5% plus the rate of inflation annually. Families will be forced to pay hundreds of additional dollars every year to afford an education. The average student in Manitoba today pays $4,058 in tuition plus the cost of ancillary fees and books. By the end of the Pallister mandate, that same student will be paying approximately $5000 plus books and fees.
