Sep. 26, 2023, Winnipeg, Man. – Manitoba Progressive Conservatives are promising money for police and first responders on the campaign trail for the Oct. 3 election.

The Tories say, if re-elected, they would commit $1 million a year to expand the Winnipeg Police Service’s property crime unit.

The Tories are also promising $5 million for post-traumatic stress services for police, firefighters and paramedics.

Tory Jon Reyes says the money could go to things like counselling services and educational resources.


The Progressive Conservatives have made a series of crime-related promises this week, including a $3-million fund to help pay for security upgrades and repairs at hotels and retail stores.
