Tories seek policy input from Manitobans

Manitoba Progressive Conservatives say they want to reach out to all Manitobans — not just members of their party — to obtain their views on policy issues.

This morning, they released a broad policy blueprint consisting of six categories, ranging from "bright futures for our children" to "responsible resource development."

Contained within each category is a list of proposed targets on which the Tories are seeking feedback.

For instance, under responsible resource development, the Tories are proposing to "reduce energy consumption as a percentage of gross domestic product" and to reduce the number of boil-water advisories in Manitoba by 50 per cent within five years.

After each section, the PCs ask whether the targets they are setting are the right ones, how best to achieve the targets, and whether there are policy areas or targets that should be added to the list.

The Conservatives say the public will be able to check out their initiative, ‘Building a Prosperity Blueprint: Real Targets — Measurable Results,’ online at www.policyblueprint.ca. The website will be up and running in the next few days.

The Tories also plan to hold a series of public policy consultation meetings across Manitoba starting this spring and running into the fall.
