The Manitoba Liberals say they would get the province’s fiscal house in order if elected on April 19.

Leader Rana Bokhari says her government would balance the budget in five to six years by limiting the growth of spending and growing the economy.

Bokhari would hold the increase in spending in health to four percent, education to 2.5 percent and all other departments to two percent.

“If we are able to find efficiencies in government the timeline will be lessened and we can invest those savings in key priorities.”

The Liberals say they could reduce the deficit by about $200 million annually.
