PC Leader, Brian Pallister says some people are trying to drive themselves to the hospital, or get a ride from someone else.
He explains that people are trying to avoid bills by taking an ambulance.
“Seniors and other patients needing care should expect a paramedic at their door, not a $500 bill in the mail,” said PC Leader Brian Pallister. “That’s just wrong.”
To that end, Pallister says if his party wins the election, they will cut those fees in half.
He pledges to put up to $11 million for health authorities and municipalities to accomplish the promise.
It’s all about the three R’s for the New Democrats today.
Leader, Greg Selinger, is promising to fund schools every year at least at the rate of economic growth, or perhaps even over that.
“Parents want their children to learn in the best environment, on the best equipment, so they’re prepared for the jobs of tomorrow,” says Selinger. “The NDP’s targeted investments will make sure Manitoba schools can offer cutting-edge programing in new classrooms, state-of-the-art shops facilities, better gyms and modern science labs.”
He pledged $50 million dollars will go towards putting technology for shop classes and science labs.
Selinger says making that investment would also create construction jobs in the hundreds.
It’s no longer St. Patricks Day, but the Liberals are thinking green.
Leader, Rana Bokhari is putting up rebates totalling $2 million every year for those who buy low emission vehicles.
She also says, if elected, they would pass legislation to reduce idling.
“Climate change is one of the most important issues of our time and we must do all we can to be a part of the solution. By offering rebates on low emission vehicle we will empower Manitobans to make better choices regarding the type of vehicle they drive. We also must curb the unnecessary expulsion of greenhouse gases,” says Bokhari.
