Alternative Provincial Budget (Manitoba) 2002-2003

Report by Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives’ Manitoba Alternative Provincial Budget 2002-2003 makes community economic development its top priority. To this end, the Alternative Budget proposes a number of measures: making Manitoba less vulnerable to downturns in the US economy by putting more money into the provincial economy; investing in services rather than tax cuts; eliminating Manitoba’s balanced budget legislation; and, solving the structural fiscal deficit the authors label as Manitoba’s ‘revenue problem.’ Additionally, the Alternative Budget puts a special emphasis on health care, proposing a plan for what the authors term “a better and more sustainable health care system.”
