Dear CCPA Manitoba supporters and followers,
The election of Wab Kinew as the first, First Nations Provincial Premier in Canada is historic. Congratulations to Premier-Elect Kinew and the new Manitoba government. CCPA Manitoba congratulates the candidates who ran in Manitoba’s provincial election.
We are looking forward to working with Manitoba’s new government to promote social justice, workers’ rights, strong public services, and environmental sustainability.
We will continue our research and analysis to advance progressive, evidence-based public policy to reduce income inequality and promote well-being, health and social inclusion. Watch for a new paper, to be released in the upcoming weeks that includes an assessment of Manitoba’s fiscal situation and where this new provincial government could lever revenue to help low and moderate income people with the affordability crisis and substantially bring down poverty rates. And of course, more analysis of the Manitoba government’s fiscal and social policy.
Sincerely, Molly McCracken
CCPA Manitoba director
