A campaign to rally in Winnipeg as the leader of the two largest political parties plans an event


The federal election campaign will end on Friday in Winnipeg, with leaders from the two major parties hosting the event.

Both liberal leader Justin Trudeau and his conservative counterpart Erin O’Toole will appear in the capital of Manitoba for a public event and will be questioned by reporters.

The new Democratic leader, Jagmate Singh, will make the first stop of the campaign in the indigenous community when he visits Kauses First Nations in Saskatchewan. The community preliminarily surveyed 751 unmarked tombs on the grounds of a former residential school. Shin will visit the graveyard.

On Thursday, leaders fought over the proper prescriptions to support the country’s health care system and the number of funding states needed to meet the needs during and after the pandemic.

O’Toole said it would increase federal funding for state-operated health systems by 6% each year. Speaking in French at the Ottawa stop, Ottawa left the door open to offer more money if the national economy grew faster than expected.

Trudeau, who outlined plans to improve wages and conditions in long-term care facilities in Victoria, British Columbia, said the country needs to invest more in health care and the government is there to increase state relocation. However, he did not give details. When and how much.

Shin highlights the party’s commitment to $ 250 million in funding to support the training and employment of 2,000 nurses, targeting Trudeau over the Free Government’s track record of medical costs during the outage in Edmonton. bottom.

NDP leaders criticized the former conservative government for cutting funds to the state in 2014, but said they had turned around and maintained funding growth at that level after taking office.
