Dave Angus shares the rst plank in the Manitoba BOLD platform press conference
he Manitoba Bold campaign was born innocently out of a desire to elevate our sights and engage Manitobans in a discussion about their province and its future leading into the next provincial election. Over the past six months, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce held numerous events that attracted hundreds of Manitobans in which we asked a simple question: “What is your bold idea for Manitoba?” We quickly learned that not only did Manitobans have some great ideas for this province, but there was an overwhelming sense that Manitobans are ready for a bold vision. The Manitoba Bold platform consists of the following announcements that are meant to make the economy and jobs the priority issue in this election.
That the Province of Manitoba reduces the education portion of property taxes by increasing its funding responsibility of the Education Funding Tax to an 80-20 funding model over the next four years with the longterm goal of elimination.
Think BOLD: Build a High Performance Provincial Government
That the Province of Manitoba establish a Commission on E ciencies that will engage the public in determining if provincial services are being provided in a cost-e ective and e cient manner. That the Province of Manitoba commit to investing in and implementing technology systems that will provide e ciencies, speed, enhanced service levels, and improved communications resulting in better decision making in government.
