Manitoba’s Progressive Conservatives say they would give citizens a vote on any proposed major tax increases, if elected.
“Manitobans are taxed to the max. They should decide on whether major tax increases are imposed by their government,” leader Brian Pallister said.
“(Premier) Greg Selinger and his three dozen NDP MLAs took away the right to vote and gave it to themselves. A PC government will restore that right because we respect the voice of Manitobans.”
Pallister also said his government would cut the ministerial salary of cabinet ministers and the premier by 20 percent.
