Save the Date: Leadership Convention Dinner

Dear friends,

With Leadership 2017 delegate selection voting officially underway, I wanted to let you know about a special event for our party.

On September 15th, the party will host a Leadership Convention Dinner at the RBC Convention Centre (375 York Ave) in downtown Winnipeg. The event will feature our leadership candidates — Steve Ashton & Wab Kinew — and takes place the night before the September 16th Leadership Convention.

This event is a special opportunity for New Democrats to come together and celebrate the work we've shared during the leadership race.

Delegate Selection Voting

Delegate selection voting ran from Tuesday, August 8 to Monday, August 21.

Members of each constituency, affiliate and the MYND selected delegates to the Leadership Convention. Delegates who are selected will elect the leader at convention on Saturday, September 16.

Please note the following:

  • In order to vote for delegates, you must have been a current member of the Manitoba NDP by June 18 at 4:30:00 p.m.

Why Cuts Hurt Education

Dear friends,

I'm writing you today about the changes happening in our province. Like many parents, I'm concerned about the cuts being made to public services that families like mine count on. In particular, as a music teacher, I'm really starting to see first-hand how Brian Pallister's agenda is having a negative impact on public education and our childrens' future. 

As you may have heard, the Pallister government’s 2017 budget does not include nearly enough funding to cover inflation and the growing needs of the students in our schools.
