'Manitobans understand the difference,' says Pallister

'I think that team building is essential and partnerships are essential, but you don’t have to look any further than the dissent within the NDP government to have a powerful sense of disquiet about the ability of this government to work as a team themselves,' Conservative Leader Brian Pallister said today.

'I think that team building is essential and partnerships are essential, but you don’t have to look any further than the dissent within the NDP government to have a powerful sense of disquiet about the ability of this government to work as a team themselves,' Conservative Leader Brian Pallister said today.

Brian Pallister says he is looking forward to working with Justin Trudeau, and he’s not taking seriously a suggestion by Manitoba’s premier that Monday night’s federal election result in Winnipeg should be cause for concern for provincial Conservatives.

“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to work with the new Liberal government. I’ve worked with Liberals extensively when I was on the Hill in Ottawa as a representative from Manitoba. And I believe we can get a lot done,” the Progressive Conservative leader said.

Pallister said Trudeau ran a “very energetic” and “very well organized” campaign, and it was obvious that his party had done a lot of community outreach – something, he said, the provincial Conservatives have been doing in the lead-up to next April’s provincial election.

“I must congratulate Justin Trudeau and his team for doing that. They have done that diligently and it’s a very, very important aspect of doing politics properly,” he said of the prime minister designate’s outreach efforts.

Brian Pallister says he is looking forward to working with Justin Trudeau, and he’s not taking seriously a suggestion by Manitoba’s premier that Monday night’s federal election result in Winnipeg should be cause for concern for provincial Conservatives.

"I’m really excited to have the opportunity to work with the new Liberal government. I’ve worked with Liberals extensively when I was on the Hill in Ottawa as a representative from Manitoba. And I believe we can get a lot done," the Progressive Conservative leader said.

Pallister said Trudeau ran a "very energetic" and "very well organized" campaign, and it was obvious that his party had done a lot of community outreach – something, he said, the provincial Conservatives have been doing in the lead-up to next April’s provincial election.

"I must congratulate Justin Trudeau and his team for doing that. They have done that diligently and it’s a very, very important aspect of doing politics properly," he said of the prime minister designate’s outreach efforts.

But Pallister rejected the notion that his party – which stands high in public opinion polls – should fear Monday night’s results that saw the federal Conservatives fail to win a single seat in Winnipeg.

"Manitobans understand the difference between the two levels of government," Pallister said.

He also rejected an assertion by Greg Selinger earlier in the day that the premier would be able to work well with Trudeau on several common priorities.

"I think that team building is essential and partnerships are essential, but you don’t have to look any further than the dissent within the NDP government to have a powerful sense of disquiet about the ability of this government to work as a team themselves," he said, referring to the challenge by two members of Selinger’s caucus to his leadership earlier this year.
