Pallister's Plan to Privatize Child Care

The number of child care spaces were frozen the last time Brian Pallister was in government, and fees rose by up to 75% because of reckless cuts that he and his Conservative colleagues made. This is the same kind of approach that Pallister took when he voted with the Harper government to cancel the National Child Care Plan.

Now he plans to do it again, which would put child care out of reach for countless working and middle-class families.

CFS and Customary Care

Brian Pallister's approach to CFS -- which only focuses on incentives for business and ignores deeply rooted issues like intergenerational poverty and the legacy of residential schools -- is narrow-minded at best and alarming at worst.

We are also very concerned that the Liberals don't support a Customary Care model for Indigenous children. This is a monumental system change that Indigenous leaders and families across the province called for and support.

Manitoba Tourism

We're glad to see the Conservatives recognize the impact of our investments in game-changing attractions that are making people stand up and take notice of Manitoba, and creating good jobs -- like Journey to Churchill at the Zoo, the CMHR, the new Inuit Art Centre at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, improvements at the Manitoba Museum and the redeveloped Convention Centre.

Pallister's Hollow Words

Brian Pallister is pretending to be an advocate for women – but these are hollow words coming from someone who opposed marriage equality and a woman's right to choose, and who is running several candidates who hold the same regressive views.

Actions speak louder than words – and firing a staffer for calling for an inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls speaks for itself.
