Ok got this from somebody post Facebook
As to the Government's budget announcement today - Vulnerable Manitobans on fixed incomes were protected. Funding for public and post secondary
education was protected. Healthcare for all Manitobans was protected. Here's the really big deal - Every Minister in this Government took a 20%
rollback in salary and all MLAs salaries are frozen for the foreseeable future - and while nobody much is talking about this - it is huge. I am not
aware of any other province that has been so brave or self sacrificing. This is leadership. I tip my hat to all of them and thank each of them for
their service to all Manitobans.
