It has come to our attention that the NDP have made allegations about the theft of their campaign signs. The Manitoba Liberal Party does not condone the theft of campaign signs and we have not engaged in this activity. Our Point Douglas campaign has been run with respect for the democratic process and all of the candidates and participating parties.
We believe this allegation is last ditch attempt by the NDP to sway voters that they have lost. This allegation is precisely the kind of behaviour that we are working hard to change.
Every day we hear how much people in this area want change and this is an example of the type of politics that the people of Point Douglas have grown weary of.
As of Sunday evening, we have not received official notification from the Manitoba Commissioner of Elections regarding a complaint of this nature.
We would encourage anyone who witnesses the theft of campaign materials belonging to any party, to report the activity to the Winnipeg Police Service.
President, Manitoba Liberal Party
