Justice

We want every family to feel safe in their homes and in their communities.

We’re building safer communities by cracking down on crime, while also tackling long-term solutions to the root causes of crime.

  • Brian Pallister’s push for half a billion dollars in cuts would mean cutting funding for police officers, correctional workers and prosecutors. Instead, we’re choosing to invest in the people who keep our communities safe—adding 302 more police officers to Manitoba since 1999.

  • Our innovative Auto Theft Suppression Strategy is working. Over the last decade, auto thefts in Winnipeg have declined by nearly 85%.

  • Our new Restorative Justice Act is first-in-Canada legislation that allows police to refer offenders who’ve committed minor crimes to community-based programs, instead of laying charges.

    • This will relieve pressure on our courts system, allowing them to focus on the most serious crimes, and give more offenders the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions in their own community and make better choices in the future.

We’re making communities safer for everyone by investing in stronger policing and prosecution, successful crime prevention programs, a five-year plan for restorative justice and modern crime-fighting techniques.
