Open Government

Manitobans know that they can’t trust Greg Selinger’s NDP government.

Why? Because they promised not to raise the PST in the last election, then they broke that promise by raising it from 7% to 8%. And they took away the right of Manitobans to vote on that tax increase; another broken promise.

Because they have repeatedly broken their promises to balance the books. They have doubled the debt of our province in just eight years and overseen the first downgrade in Manitoba’s credit rating in three decades.

Your new Progressive Conservative government will restore public trust in government through a new “Open Government Initiative” with 18 specific action items aimed at ensuring accountability, transparency and genuine, ethical leadership.

The initiative will establish new, higher standards for transparency, accountability and MLA ethics, with open contracting procedures, and give real authority to independent Legislative officers to investigate and report.
