Manitoba Finance Minister Stan Struthers will begin hosting a series of pre-budget consultation meetings with citizens tonight in Winnipeg.
The meetings will give Manitobans a chance to make their voice heard as the government works toward announcing the 2012 budget this spring.
The first consultation will be tonight at the Waverley Heights Community Centre, 1085 Chancellor Drive, at 7 p.m.
Five more meetings are planned throughout the province this month:

January 23 (Dauphin) — Parkland Recreation Complex, 200 First Street SE
January 25 (Ste. Anne) — Knights of Columbus Hall, 132 Centrale Avenue
All meetings will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
