Heather Stefanson’s PCs Break Law In Desperate Bid to Buy Favour with Manitobans
Treaty 1 and Dakota Territory, Homeland of the Red River Métis, Winnipeg MB – In a desperate bid to hold on to power, Heather Stefanson gave taxpayer dollars to PC candidates to dole out to community organizations across the province.
“Taxpayer dollars are not a slush fund for Heather Stefanson’s election bid,” said Mark Wasyliw, NDP Candidate for Fort Garry. “It’s an abuse of the office of Government to funnel taxpayer dollars to PC Party candidates.”
The NDP has filed a complaint with the Elections Commissioner over the illegal contributions.
“This is part of a pattern – it started with giving Obby Khan’s company hundreds of thousands of dollars while other businesses suffered,” said Wasyliw. “Now the Premier is giving PC candidates taxpayer cheques to try and buy support – it’s desperate, wrong, and illegal. The Premier should be held to account,” added Wasyliw.
