The NDP are promising to make your child’s education a little more affordable, as all the major parties get back out on the campaign trail, Thursday.
Leader Greg Selinger says the NDP would cap school fees at $100 per year. That would include paying for things like regular programming supplies, instrument rental and intramural sports.
Selinger is also promising $1000 grants to parent councils.
The Progressive Conservatives are promising to crack down on untendered government contracts.
Leader Brian Pallister has repeatedly hammered the NDP over buying $5 million dollars worth of flood fighting “Tiger Dams” from a company owned by a friend of then cabinet minister Steve Ashton.
Pallister says his government would crack down on issuing untendered contracts and give the auditor general more power to investigate.
Liberal leader Rana Bokhari is outside the Perimeter Highway, appealing to rural voters.
She’s promising to remove a $5000 cap on school taxes on farmland. She says that tax costs families over $8 million per year.
Bokhari is promising to get rid of the cap by her second year in office.
