Manitoba’s 40th provincial election will officially be called today after Premier Greg Selinger visits Lieutenant Governor Philip Lee this morning.
Selinger will walk from the legislature to Government House at 10:30 a.m. as part of a planned photo-op.
From there, the NDP will kick off their campaign at the Gateway Recreation Centre in River East. Later in the day, Selinger will travel to Brandon where he’ll make election commitments in the Wheat City.
Progressive Conservative leader Hugh McFadyen will begin his day by door knocking in Fort Garry-Riverview with PC candidate Ian Rabb before making a campaign announcement at 2 p.m. In the evening, McFadyen will host the first Safer Communities Forum in Riverview.
Meanwhile, Jon Gerrard and the Liberals will make a community safety announcement at the Burrows Community Centre alongside area candidate Twyla Motkaluk.
All three parties have already been campaigning, holding rallies and making announcements for the past week.
Manitobans vote on October 4.
