Winnipeg, MB – “Today, I have written to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly to inform my intent to resign my seat in the Legislative Assembly effective immediately.
It has been the greatest honour of my life serving the citizens of Manitoba these past nine years in the Legislature.
We have worked each and every day with our dedicated team to improve the lives of Manitobans.
It was ten years ago today on the eve of the 2011 provincial election that I chose to seek the leadership of the PC party because I believed I could lead a team that would fix the finances, repair the services, and rebuild the economy of Manitoba.
We earned two record back-to-back majority governments because Manitobans knew we would keep our word. As government, we created the largest ongoing per person investment in healthcare, education and family services of any province to protect the vulnerable. We lowered the tax burden on working Manitobans, seniors and families to help make life more affordable, and we did this while moving away from dangerous deficits and debt, to balance.
With the preparations our government has put in place over the years and throughout the pandemic to protect Manitobans, our province is poised to recover strongly and safely.
