What a tremendous first three days of official campaigning in our beautiful community. People are telling me they are thrilled about the recent $30+ million investment in the community and my commitment to waive land transfer tax for first-time homebuyers and property tax deferral for seniors.
Today, our PC Team is committing to permanent affordability measures to help Manitobans make ends meet. A re-elected PC government will nearly double the charitable donation tax credit.
It’s no secret we live in the most generous province in Canada. I constantly hear charities smashing fundraising targets each year and Manitobans helping worthy causes here at home and around the world.
This change will increase the rebate on the first $200 charitable contribution from 10.8% to 20% and contributions over $200 from 17.4% to 25%. As a result, Manitoba will have the most generous charitable tax credit in the country.
Today our PC Team provided a fully-costed affordability platform. The end of each week during the campaign will be fully costed in the spirit of transparency and accountability.
Unlike The Liberals, who promised to raise school property taxes and taxes on your income. And unlike Wab Kinew and the NDP, our promises are not written on the back of a napkin and are contradictory to past positions.

I’m excited to show Manitobans how we will lower taxes, grow our economy, and make our communities better together.
