Open letter to Premier Wab Kinew and the Government of Manitoba

  • On December 5th, the Manitoba government announced there is a projected $1.6 billion deficit in Manitoba, a huge change from the previous projection of $369 million.

  • Journalists like Tom Brodbeck and Dan Lett are critiquing the NDP government's doubling down on their commitment to implement the tax cuts of the previous PC government 

  • Given this new information, it is clear the tax cuts create a structural deficit with a substantial fiscal cost. It is a substantial opportunity cost for investment in services and to address the social deficit. Manitoba is borrowing money to pay for the education property tax and income tax cuts.
