Progressive Conservative Leader Brian Pallister has a new radio ad that promotes his party’s court fight against the NDP hike of provincial sales tax last year.

The ad will start running Thursday.

Pallister’s Tories are taking the NDP to court June 4, claiming the NDP ran afoul of the law by hiking the PST one point to eight per cent without holding a public referendum, as required under the 1995 Taxpayer Protection Act.

Here’s the text of the ad:

I’m Brian Pallister.

The Progressive Conservatives are standing up for all Manitobans. We are taking the NDP to court on June 4th to have the PST increase reversed.

In the last election the NDP promised not to increase taxes. They raised the PST while taking away the chance for Manitobans to vote on the increase.

In fact, the NDP is going to court to fight against Manitobans. The PCs are standing up for Manitobans.

We’re standing up for you.

I’m Brian Pallister.
