Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger received the worst ratings for a provincial government or premier in a new survey from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) on issues related to support for small business.

The survey results show Manitoba members of the CFIB are the least confident in Canada that their Premier and provincial government have a vision that supports small business.

Only eight per cent of Manitoba small business owners were confident their provincial government has a vision to create a small-businesses-friendly climate – tied for last with Quebec. Only three per cent of respondents said Premier Selinger understands the realities of running a small business – tied for last place with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.

Saskatchewan received the top marks amongst the provinces with 72 per cent of entrepreneurs expressing confidence in their government’s vision.

Nobody in the Selinger caucus that I am aware, has any background in or appreciation of business or economics.

Self-promotion, not business promotion, is their forte.
