With the start of a new year, comes discussion of financial budgets.
Minister of Finance, Cameron Friesen, talks about where the province is at with budgeting:
“Budget 2018 for the Province of Manitoba will take place on Monday, March 12. We are looking forward to it. We are facing challenges together as a province, after years of overspending, and services that haven’t been kept up, but we made a pledge to Manitobans that we were going to build trust in government, deliver progress for all Manitobans, and keep our promises. We’re looking forward to letting Manitobans know how we are doing.”
The two main sectors, where there has been overspending in the past, was health care and education.
