On Wednesday, the Pallister government reneged on a promise to have the Public Utility Board do an independent review of Bipole III – instead his ministers paraded a U.S. consulting firm’s report as though it had discovered new and startling data that can only be a prelude to raising rates, NDP MLA James Allum said today.
“What is clear today is there are no limits to how far the PC government will go to refight the last election. They promised during the election they would deliver an independent review of Bipole III by the Public Utilities Board. Instead, they reneged on that promise and a U.S. consultant was hired.
The Pallister government has once again shown it has no vision for the future by forcing Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries to cancel a new headquarters that would have helped to revitalize downtown Winnipeg, NDP MLA Ted Marcelino said today.
