Greetings from Costa Rica

Manitobans deserve more than a part-time premier

Premier Pallister took a 20% pay raise and says he deserves to take two months off a year in sunny Costa Rica without using email. He’s out of touch.

Regular Manitobans know families have to work hard to put food on the table and to make ends meet. Manitoba families rely on the important services they receive. They don’t get 20% pay raises.

While Pallister takes his 20% pay raise and jets off to sunny Costa Rica, his government is cutting health care, good jobs and education – supports that families depend on.

Pallister has:

  • Scrapped $1 billion in investments for Cancer Care, personal care homes and community clinics for seniors and families;

  • Refused to increase the minimum wage and threatened to bring back unpaid days off, known as ‘Filmon Fridays’;

  • Cut hundreds of jobs at Manitoba Hydro and across the province; and

  • Cut back investments in roads and bridges by over $120 million.

Manitobans deserve more than a part-time premier. They deserve a premier who is not just working for himself.

Do you think that it’s right that Brian Pallister took a 20% pay raise, and do you think he can work for Manitoba families from his vacation home in Costa Rica two months a year?

Please take a moment to tell us what you think.
