Manitoba’s Progressive Conservative Party would establish a curling centre of excellence in Winnipeg if elected.

The idea would be to build on Manitoba’s reputation as the curling capital of the world, leader Brian Pallister said.

“Manitoba has always been a leader in curling, in terms of the number of national and world champions it produces and in participation from grassroots to elite competition,” said Pallister.

The province would partner with the sport’s top coaches, trainers and organizations to create the centre of excellence.

“This will grow the game, attract curlers to Manitoba and help develop the highest-caliber players, coaches and ice makers.”

Voters go the polls on April 19.
