Our MLA did not mince his words when he spoke recently in the Manitoba Legislature.
Kelly Bindle said that he recently had breakfast with a group of retired Thompsonites who now live in Winnipeg. He said that they know that trust and working together was crucial to building up Thompson and the north.
Bindle then turned to his NDP counterparts and did not mince his words. The former Inco employee blasted the opposition, saying that they broke their word and that the current session is extended because of it.
He added that not telling the truth was one of the reasons that Manitobans “punted” the NDP from power two years ago.
Bindle said that nothing has changed when it comes to the Manitoba NDP, and that those who do not have a close relationship with the truth need to be challenged.
The Pallister Government says that there was a deal in place with the NDP when it comes to the opposition asking questions about the budget, as well as an interim supply motion (pays for government operations until the budget is implemented).
P.C. House Leader Cliff Cullen said that it was the NDP that broke the verbal agreement, though opposition leader Wab Kinew said that the only deal that was ever in place was to due with the interim supply motion.
Kinew responded to Cullen’s accusation, saying that he is “misrepresenting the situation” and that it seems like “somebody is trying to cover up the situation to try and look good for his boss”.
