Manitoba’s Progressive Conservative Party would spend no less than $1 billion annually on infrastructure if elected in April.
Leader Brian Pallister called the plan a guaranteed strategic infrastructure investment while speaking to the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association and the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association on Tuesday.
“Strategic infrastructure can and should provide an economic return for Manitoba families and businesses,” Pallister said. “To achieve this, a new PC government will be a focused, sustained and reliable partner for the long-term.”
Pallister said his party’s infrastructure spending plan would exceed that of the NDP government over the past four years.
Manitobans go to the polls on April 19.
