WINNIPEG — Manitoba’s New Democratic Party has gone from a party-orange shade of red to black by clearing outstanding debt from the 2016 election.

The party raised $82,500 during a year-end fundraiser, bringing in nearly twice of what was raised during the same period in 2016.

“Manitoba New Democrats are starting fresh, with renewed energy and a new direction,” NDP leader Wab Kinew said in a statement.


“Moving forward, our party is focused on building towards the next election, to deliver the health care plan for the future that Manitobans want and to put a stop to Pallister’s cuts.”
