The Manitoba NDP has announced the party’s platform for the Sept. 10 provincial election, promising "significant" infrastructure investment in Brandon.
The promise is one of 57 policy points laid out in the document, which focuses on improving health care, jobs and sustainable growth and providing an affordable quality of life.
Party leader Wab Kinew was in Brandon in early July criticizing Premier Brian Pallister’s government for cuts to infrastructure spending. He blamed the provincial government’s cuts for delaying construction of the Daly Overpass. When asked at the time whether he would commit funding to speed the project along, Kinew didn’t provide specifics.
The platform also promises an NDP government would — if elected — form an emergency task force to find new international markets for canola, pork and other products.
More details to come in Friday’s newspaper.
