A better budget for Manitoba's future

Alternative Provincial Budget demonstrates that a responsible, progressive, and green budget is possible
April 4, 2001

The Manitoba Alternative (Alternative Provincial Budget 2001-02), co-produced by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives-Manitoba and Cho!ces: A Coalition for Social Justice, demonstrates some of the budgetary options available to the province of Manitoba.

It is being released days before provincial Finance Minister Greg Selinger releases his second budget.

The Manitoba Alternative is a model of fiscal responsibility. It is perfectly achievable. It also contains a range of innovative, progressive measures that would make Manitoba better and more equitable. The Manitoba Alternative will be released at media conferences in Winnipeg and Brandon:
