Day 3 of the Manitoba election campaign puts west Winnipeg in the spotlight

West Winnipeg will be the focus of the Manitoba election campaign Thursday.

Opposition New Democrat Leader Wab Kinew is scheduled to make a health-care announcement outside the Grace Hospital in the city’s western suburbs.

The NDP has already promised to expand hours at a primary care clinic there to relieve pressure on the hospital’s emergency department.

The Progressive Conservatives are also set to make an announcement in the area.

The news conference will not be hosted by party leader Heather Stefanson, but instead by two cabinet ministers seeking re-election in west Winnipeg — Kevin Klein and Scott Johnston.

Stefanson did not host Wednesday’s Tory announcement either, leaving it to cabinet minister Rochelle Squires.
