Wanna talk budget?

The Selinger government said today Manitobans will have that opportunity across the province in upcoming community meetings, in person, by telephone and online.

"We want to hear from as many Manitobans as possible, which is why we're using a variety of ways to connect with people across the province," Finance Minister Jennifer Howard said in a release

Since the consultation process began in Brandon in December, Howard has met with a variety of groups including high-school students, industry and municipal associations, business councils and parent groups.

Manitobans can go in person to the consultations taking place in their regions or register online in advance to be contacted for the telephone town hall. People will be called at random and invited to join the conversation.
