Economy, housing and safety dominate Manitoba party leaders forum

WINNIPEG – Manitoba’s three main party leaders pitched their ideas on the economy, safety and other topics during their first appearance together on the provincial election campaign.

The leaders told the forum, hosted by the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association, that they would reinstate 24-hour snow clearing on major highways, which was cut back in recent years.

On the economy, Progressive Conservative Leader Heather Stefanson said the income and business tax cuts she has promised, if her party is re-elected on Oct. 3, would boost investment and job growth.

NDP Leader Wab Kinew said he would keep electricity rates low to attract businesses and would focus on areas like hydrogen development and critical minerals.

Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont said he would set up a provincial business development bank so businesses could access capital more easily.

The leaders are set to take part in more debates before the election, including a one-hour live televised debate next week.
