Manitoba’s NDP First Party to Nominate Full Slate of Candidates
Kinew accepts nomination in Fort Rouge “on behalf of everyone who believes we need a Premier who’s in it for all of us — not just those at the top”
Winnipeg — Manitoba NDP Leader Wab Kinew accepted the nomination as the NDP candidate in Fort Rouge at a packed meeting at the Park Theatre in Fort Rouge today.
Kinew’s nomination is the 57th for the Manitoba NDP, making it the only party to have a full slate of candidates in place when the election campaign officially begins. The Manitoba NDP was also the first party to launch its campaign, and the first to present a comprehensive, fully-costed platform. Kinew is generating momentum and excitement as Manitobans look for a positive alternative to the cuts and health-care chaos offered by Brian Pallister.
“Brian Pallister has forgotten who he’s supposed to be working for. I will never forget that I work for you. It’s time for a government that’s in it for families like yours,” said Kinew. “On behalf of everyone who believes we need a Premier who’s in it for all of us — not just those at the top — I accept your nomination!”
Kinew, who was introduced by his wife, Lisa, told the crowd his party’s platform emphasizes fixing Pallister’s health care crisis, creating good jobs, and addressing climate change while keeping life affordable.
