Manitobans heading to polls April 19

It’s election season in Manitoba as Premier Greg Selinger met with Lt. Gov. Janice Filmon earlier this week to dissolve the legislature and trigger a 35-day election campaign. Manitobans will head to the polls on Tuesday, April 19 for the 41st General Election in the province.

Selinger and his NDP colleagues have been in power since 1999, and polls heading into the campaign spell an uphill battle for the party. The NDP are still reeling from public backlash over raising the PST back in 2013, caucus infighting and an internal leadership challenge last year.

Conservative Party leader, Brian Pallister announced that if elected, a rollback of the PST to 7% in his first term.

Liberal Party leader, Rana Bokhari opened the election campaign by pledged full-day Kindergarten program for all Manitoba schools.
