Interim Leader Flor Marcelino and President David Woodbury Congratulate New Democrats for a Successful Convention 2017

Interim Leader Flor Marcelino and President David Woodbury thank New Democrats and over 550 delegates from across the province for a successful Convention 2017.

Delegates gathered in Winnipeg this weekend to consider 150 policy resolutions on the issues that matter most to Manitobans, including jobs & the economy, health care, education, and environmental protections, as well as amendments to the party constitution.

Manitobans Deserve More than A Part-time Premier

Today, Interim NDP Leader Flor Marcelino called on the Pallister government to reverse an austerity agenda that will hit families hard while the premier takes a 20 per cent pay raise and spends two months a year in Costa Rica.

"Premier Brian Pallister took a 20 per cent pay raise and says he deserves to take two months off a year in Costa Rica without using email, and then he imposes cuts on the rest of Manitoba," Marcelino said. "It's distressing that the premier asks families to tighten their belts while he spends two months a year out of touch at his vacation home in the tropics."

NDP Calls on Pallister Government to Maintain Safeguards on Drinking Water Systems

The NDP is calling on the Pallister government on World Water Day to be honest about its “Red Tape” bill, which weakens reviews that safeguard Manitoba’s drinking water, said NDP Environment Critic Rob Altemeyer. While mandatory testing of water continues, the government is relaxing how frequently the systems that treat and distribute our drinking water are subject to reassessment, Altemeyer said.
