Manitoba's Throne Speech Shows Government Priorities
Yesterday Manitoba’s Chief Justice Richard J.F. Chartier opened the second session of Manitoba’s 42nd legislature with a speech from the throne. Coming off September’s election that returned them with another majority mandate, the throne speech re-iterated many commitments Premier Brian Pallister made during the campaign. The speech focused on their five guarantees: Lower taxes; New jobs; Better healthcare sooner; New schools; and, The Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan.
