Manitoba’s Tories would boost investment in the tourism industry by $28.2 million over the next five years if elected.

Progressive Conservative leader Brian Pallister said his party would back Travel Manitoba’s 96/4 funding model, meaning the province would reinvest at least 4% of all tourism tax dollars back into the industry through the agency.

“Manitoba has so much to offer visitors from across Canada and around the world,” Pallister said. “We believe stronger tourism investment is necessary to reach our potential and share all the great things we enjoy with the world.”
