The NDP used taxpayer dollars to stack seats with government staff at the Premier and NDP leadership candidate Greg Selinger’s State of the Province Address, hosted by the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce on December 4, 2014.
According to new information received by the Official Opposition; 45 employees from various government departments attended the luncheon at a cost of almost $4,500, paid for by the taxpayer.
“This is just another example of the NDP wasting your taxpayer dollars to serve their own political needs, above Manitobans,” said PC MLA Shannon Martin.
This deliberate move to prop up the NDP, especially at a time of political turmoil, is grossly unacceptable. NDP waste and self-serving priorities mean less for all Manitobans.
