Mayoral candidate Robert-Falcon Ouellette has pledged to cut the salaries of all City of Winnipeg employees who make more than $80,000.

Falcon-Ouellette, a University of Manitoba administrator, unveiled on Thursday a fiscal-policy platform that includes a cut for what he described as "upper management" salaries at city hall.

Ouellette said that would involve cuts to anyone who makes more than $80,000 a year. Senior managers at city hall actually tend to make more than $100,000.

Ouellette also pledged to institute a recruitment freeze at the city, cut spending on both consultants and advertising, consider more ways to use police cadets and civilians instead of police officers and conduct a city-wide performance review.

He also said he would lobby the Selinger government to devote 70 per cent of the proceeds from the 2013 one-percentage-point PST hike to city infrastructure projects.

He said he would be more effective than previous mayors in obtaining more funding from the province.
