Pallister Announces Fall Election Date

Manitobans Will Vote September 10th; PCs Committed to Making Life Even Better for Manitobans

Progressive Conservative Party Leader Brian Pallister, flanked by a strong, united and diverse team of MLAs and nominated candidates, announced today that Manitoba’s next provincial election will be held on Tuesday, September 10th, 2019.

“Over three years ago, Manitobans overwhelmingly entrusted us a with a clear mandate to fix the finances, repair the services, and rebuild the economy,” said Pallister. “We inherited a mess. But together, we have made real progress. The deficit is cut by more than half. Health care and education investments are at a record high. And we did so without raising one single tax on Manitoba families.”

Because of the hard work of Manitobans, the PST will be reduced to seven percent on July 1st, six years to the day the NDP broke its promise to Manitobans and raised it.

With over 90 percent of the PC platform completed or underway, now is the time for Manitobans to choose the team they trust to lead our province. Pallister committed to a new, bold agenda that will make life more affordable for Manitoba families with new job opportunities and better health and education outcomes.

“On September 10th, Manitobans will have an opportunity to choose between building a better Manitoba with lower taxes and better services, or falling back to the higher taxes and worse services we experienced under the NDP”, Pallister added. “That’s a risk Manitobans can’t afford.”

Today’s announcement further demonstrates the Progressive Conservatives’ commitment to a fair, open and transparent election process. A voluntary restriction on government advertising is already in place ensuring taxpayer dollars are not used inappropriately. And all opposition parties are receiving equal, early notice of the election date.

“I am very proud of the strong and diverse team of candidates that make up our Progressive Conservative team,” said Pallister. “They are each strong community leaders and know the importance of working together with and on behalf of Manitobans. Going back to the self-interest and disarray of the NDP is not a risk Manitobans can afford.”
