A Progressive Conservative Manitoba government would bring the province into the New West Partnership Trade Agreement if elected.

Leader Brian Pallister said his party would join the agreement with Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

“Promoting Manitoba trade is a key part of our ten-point economic strategy,” Pallister said. “We will foster freer trade and stronger partnerships for our Manitoba companies, and for the families they employ.”

Pallister says under the NDP, some businesses have been denied work because Manitoba remains outside of the agreement.

Pallister also said his party would reduce the record number of kids in the care of Child and Family Services by improving the provincial economy.
