PC government reveals next steps in its quest to balance the books.

"We are keeping the promises we made to Manitobans," Finance Minister Cameron Friesen said in his budget speech.
"We’re fixing our finances, so that Manitobans will have greater stability. We’re repairing our services, so that Manitobans will have greater security. And we are rebuilding our economy, so that Manitobans will have greater opportunity."
