A McFadyen government would reduce phosphorus flows into Lake Winnipeg by 20 per cent by 2020.
Progress Conservative Leader Hugh McFadyen made the pledge by a pond in Southdale with Tory candidate Judy Eastman, Portage La Prairie candidate Ian Wishart, St. Vital candidate Mike Brown and Arthur-Virden candidate Larry Maguire.
McFadyen also promised to give $5 million a year for local water retention projects.
His plan also calls for a Lake Winnipeg roundtable with other provinces and states to further lower phosphorus levels into the lake.
