September 21, 2017

NDP Leader Wab Kinew announced caucus and critic roles for NDP MLAs.

“Our team will stand up for everyday Manitobans, and for the issues they care about: good jobs, quality health care close to home, and a future in this province we can all look forward to. I’m proud and humbled to lead a team reflects the diversity of Manitobans. We are committed to working hard every day to serve them.”
