The Canadian Press: Manitoba tax change to help most people despite raising more money, premier says

April 15, 2024 — 

A political analyst said the tax change may not go over well in some of the suburban constituencies that switched from the Tories to the NDP in last year’s provincial election.

“In many ways, the NDP were elected as a rejection of the past administration and, secondly, concerns over things like health care,” said Christopher Adams, an adjunct professor of political studies at the University of Manitoba.

“So right now, the NDP is putting in these changes. They might be forgotten by the time the next election comes around, but I suspect there will be some blow back in some of the middle-class neighbourhoods of Winnipeg.”
