Message from Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger

My fellow Manitoban,

Manitoba’s seniors built our province.

They deserve to know that the services they count on will be there for them, when they need them. That’s why your NDP have been working hard to make Manitoba an even better place for every senior to live.

Many Manitoba seniors live on a fixed income, and we’re helping them keep more money in their pockets. That’s why we’ve expanded tax credits for seniors and their family caregivers and made investments to expand long-term care, home care and rehabilitation services.

In this election, I’ve outlined the next steps we’ll take together to provide even more help to families like yours.

We announced new supports to help seniors live in their homes longer by eliminating school taxes for seniors. We’ve also committed to creating more affordable housing rental units.

Manitoba families have said their top priority is health care, and we have a plan to keep health care on the right track. We’re going to hire 200 more doctors, 2,000 new nurses and 50 more physician assistants over the next 4 years. And we’re going to open 3 more QuickCare Clinics and 3 more ACCESS Centres.

All this will mean better care for you and your family, closer to home.

Our plan protects and improves our province, but all of this would be put at risk with Hugh McFadyen and the PCs. He’s a risk to all the progress we’ve made together for all Manitobans. Just last year, Mr. McFadyen pushed to cut half a billion dollars from the budget – putting health care and other important services that seniors rely on at risk.

Let’s not turn back. Together we can keep building a better Manitoba for everyone.

Greg Selinger.
