Manitoba Liberals Promise Higher Income Taxes and School Property Taxes for Many Manitobans

Wednesday, September 6, 2023 - It has been a busy first two days on the 2023 Campaign Trail for the political leaders, with ups and downs.

The Manitoba Liberal leader, Dougald Lamont, kicked off his campaign by learning that a prominent former Liberal MP, Lloyd Axworthy, put his name behind Wab Kinew, which he downplayed as meaningless.

The Liberals, who don't have official party status and will have to fight hard to maintain their three seats in the Legislature, released a plan to spend more (almost a billion dollars more a year), raise school property taxes, raise income taxes, and to focus on achieving Trudeau's plan for net zero.

Lamont also promises to give money in the form of "bonus pay" of between $5,000 and $10,000 for all front-line healthcare workers.

The NDP continued to make more promises about healthcare but offered no details on how they will pay for all the new spending Wab Kinew has proposed so far.
