Liberals Say NDP "Don't Care" About Justice, Municipalities

According to the Liberals, the Manitoba NDP are ignoring serious issues.


Figures recently released by the Manitoba Liberal Party suggest the NDP has spent 100 hours asking questions of the Pallister government, with less than half an hour spent on justice, and no time spent on municipal relations.


Liberal house leader, Jon Gerrard, said in a release that Manitoba has court backlogs, jails are overcrowded and cases are being thrown out but the NDP doesn't seem to care.


Dougald Lamont, the leader of the Manitoba Liberal Party, said that actions speak louder than words. He added that the NDP have “made it clear that justice, municipalities and agriculture aren't even on their radar”.


The statistics say that the most time has been spent on health, seniors and active living, followed by executive council and finance.


Below is a breakdown of the time alloted by the NDP to each topic, as reported by the Liberal Party.
