Manitoba Chambers of Commerce Looks Forward to Working with New Provincial Government

Apr 20, 2016 | Chamber News

Manitoba voters have sent a clear message that they are looking for change and a new vision for the province. The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC) would like to congratulate Premier-Elect Brian Pallister on his party’s majority victory, and look forward to working with the individuals who will make up his cabinet on key regional issues such as economic competitiveness, workforce, and regional economic development.

“I want to thank all those who let their names stand during the election,” said Chuck Davidson, President and CEO of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce. “The Chamber and the businesses we represent look forward to working with this new government to put in place the foundation where local businesses from across Manitoba can thrive and grow”.

Having a stable majority government will permit Mr. Pallister and his team to put in place a strong plan to promote Manitoba. During the campaign, the Manitoba Chamber network set out a vision of our priorities for government. We look forward to working with the new government and the opposition to ensure our priorities are brought to the forefront and addressed. The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce has been very active during the campaign to position the priorities of our local Chamber network. Issues such as addressing workforce shortages are very important to our province, and we look forward to presenting the issues to the new government.

“Like any election, platforms are general in nature. It is the fine print of the platforms that are important to organizations like MCC. It is now time to see the fine print on many of these platforms. That is where the real growth and impact of a policy position is determined,” added Davidson.

The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce would like to extend our thanks to Greg Selinger and Rana Bokhari for their campaigns and bringing attention to a number of issues critical to growing Manitoba.
