The Manitoba Legislature is responsible to the people and the people deserve a government that is accountable more often. It’s time to bring the House back into session to address the many questions the NDP seem unable to answer right now.
“Our party stands for accountability and that accountability begins in the Legislature. We are calling on the premier to call us back into session to do the work Manitobans have sent us here to do,” said Opposition Leader Brian Pallister.
Recently the minister responsible for MPI claims he was unaware of a massive contract approved by him and his cabinet colleagues. This contract was to pay the former CEO $50,000 for doing nothing. Surely Manitobans deserve some answers.
The minister responsible for child and family services is investigating her own department because she was unaware of millions of dollars spent in her department on services for Manitoba’s most vulnerable children. Surely Manitobans deserve some answers.
The minister responsible for Manitoba Hydro will want to explain to Manitobans how the cost for transmission line Bipole III can go from $1.1 billion to $4.6 billion since it was first announced just three years ago. It’s time to come back. The NDP has some explaining to do.
