The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce believes that economic growth is Manitobans’ top priority. The overriding challenge for the next five years is to diversify our agricultural, manufacturing, resource, financial, and service sectors to strengthen our capacity for export and create jobs. Prudent investments within a climate of confidence and certainty enable growth, leading to more jobs, greater prosperity, and a higher quality of life.
For this reason, in anticipation of Manitoba’s September 10 provincial election, and on behalf of a coalition of 10 leading business advocacy organizations in Manitoba, we emailed a survey to the leaders of four main parties: Mr. James Beddome, Green Party of Manitoba; Mr. Dougald Lamont, Manitoba Liberals; Mr. Wab Kinew, Manitoba NDP; and Mr. Brian Pallister, Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba.
We requested their participation in a survey about our #7PILLARS, an election-related campaign created to bolster commitment to prosperity for all Manitobans. The goal of the survey was to give potential leaders the opportunity to showcase (to MCC members and Manitoba voters at-large) their commitments to the economy, as well as any proposed policy in support of sustainability and future growth. We have posted their responses for your review. Simply click on the links below to open each document individually.
Special thanks to to Mr. Kinew, Mr. Beddome, Mr. Lamont, Mr. Pallister, and their supporting team members, for their thoughtful consideration of this request.
