Transform our Province from Manitoba Last to Manitoba First

Understand, 16 years of NDP government resulted in the worst of policy and results.

Unfortunately, the Pallister PC’s are giving us more of the same. Manitoba is in need of a substantial make-over. We need to bring down the provincial debt while moving taxes and fees lower and competitive. To accomplish that, the swollen public sector needs to be reduced and transformed to become more effective – bringing about improved services at an affordable cost. To prepare for succeeding in an ever increasingly competitive world, Manitoba First would act from its first day in power. Manitoba has to hold and bring in more private industries, so our young and professionals will stop leaving (as has been the case for decades). And, as to immigration, good jobs are needed for our new Manitobans to develop roots here.

Our policy roadmap for a confident, fearless, successful and growing Manitoba:

1.

Cancel the Pallister Carbon Dioxide Tax while repealing Efficiency Manitoba legislation and refocusing environment policy back to the basics of clean air and water.

2.

Begin a comprehensive reform of Manitoba Hydro – Centra Gas and separate Hydro’s debt from its uneconomic expansion to reduce rate hikes before further restructuring the utility.

3.

Bring real transformative healthcare, education and justice system reform, focus on improving outcomes and lowering costs – bringing both metrics to at least the Canadian average.

4.

Start University reform by removing race-based/gender-based entry quotas (i.e. U of M’s Education faculty) and mandatory political education courses. Focus funding on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

5.

Tax reform – repeal the payroll tax and land transfer tax, reduce corporate and income tax rates to western Canadian average, and adopt a harmonized sales tax (merge GST and PST).

6.

End traffic fines as taxation policy. End revenue-maximizing special construction and school zone enforcement policies. Ban photo radar.

7.

Promote bidding by open-shop contractors for infrastructure projects, and bring in gold-standard procurement policies throughout the public sector.

8.

Refund the Workers Compensation Board’s excessive accumulated surplus to employers, and amend MPI’s investment policy to boost investment revenue towards reducing premiums.

9.

As part of broader City of Winnipeg Act reforms, repeal Winnipeg’s development-phobic development impact tax and stop raiding the water utility to artificially reduce property tax increases.

10.

Bring in a comprehensive MLA conflict of interest act while practicing openness and transparency.

11.

Remove the Province from retail distribution of alcohol and marijuana.

12.

Enable the sharing economy, such as ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.

13.

Work with the federal government to move the proposed Lowlands National Park away from an ‘untouched’ and valuable $2 billion nickel deposit – a future job and economic driver for Manitoba.
