We're Getting The Job Done

Manitoba Finance made a significant announcement today, revealing that the Progressive Conservative (PC) government has successfully balanced the budget for the current fiscal year. The news was shared by Kevin Klein, the PC candidate for Kirkfield Park, who emphasized the government's commitment to prioritizing investments in essential sectors like health care and education. According to Klein, the balanced budget was a result of a growing economy that led to increased government revenues. He highlighted the party's dedication to reinvesting these funds into crucial areas such as health care, education, roads, and social services. Klein criticized the spending plan proposed by Wab Kinew, leader of the opposing New Democratic Party (NDP), stating that Kinew's approach was based on false assumptions and would necessitate tax hikes to cover the proposed $3.3 billion in new spending. Klein contested Kinew's claim of having $500 million in "unallocated funds," clarifying that these funds were designated for purposes like recent labour agreements negotiated by the Manitoba government and were not available for the NDP's spending plan. He criticized the NDP's platform as being manufactured and disconnected from reality. "Our stable, experienced PC Team will continue putting Manitobans' needs first," affirmed Klein. He highlighted the PC government's achievements, including historic tax breaks, a record $100-million increase in education funding, and the allocation of the largest-ever healthcare budget amounting to $7.9 billion. Klein emphasized that the PC government's balanced budget and higher revenue from the growing economy set them apart from the NDP's proposals. With a surplus of $270 million, the PC government is committed to reinvesting these funds into key areas such as health care and education. The party plans to run modest deficits over the next two years while allocating necessary funds to priority sectors, with the goal of restoring the budget to balance by 2025. As the provincial election approaches on October 3rd, 2023, advanced polls have opened, setting the stage for a crucial political decision for Manitobans.
Recruiting More Health-Care Staff

Recruiting More Health-Care Staff

Kevin Klein, PC candidate for Kirkfield Park, said that those health-care projects—including upgrades to the Grace Hospital ICU, St. Boniface Emergency Room, and Concordia Operating Room, as well as an expansion to the Health Sciences Centre Bed Tower and Surgical Centre of Excellence, and redeveloping Portage Place—are all at risk if the NDP form government. The recruitment funding will also help ensure staff coverage at health-care facilities across Manitoba, including: the Bethesda Regional Health Centre in Steinbach, where a new $30-million surgical centre is underway; the Boundary Trails Health Centre in Winkler, which is currently undergoing a $100-million expansion; Brandon Regional Hospital, where work started earlier this year for $136-million upgrades along with the Western Manitoba Cancer Centre; the Dauphin Regional Health Centre, where our PC Team has made $23-million ER upgrades; Lakeshore General Hospital in Ashern, which is undergoing a $10.8-million expansion; the new $127-million Neepawa Hospital, which will be nearly four times the size of the existing Neepawa Health Centre; the new $455-million Portage Regional Health Centre in Portage la Prairie, which will be significantly larger than the existing Portage District General Hospital; the Selkirk Regional Health Centre, which is currently undergoing a $45.7-million expansion and renovation; the St. Anthony’s General Hospital in The Pas, where the community will also benefit from $39-million in funding that our PC Team invested in The Pas Primary Health Clinic nearby; and the Swan Valley Health Centre in Swan River, where our PC Team has recently invested to bring in a new CT scanner. All of these projects are at risk under an NDP government. “Wab Kinew has promised to build almost a dozen new medical facilities without committing to the existing projects underway, without strategic or clinical backing, and with absolutely no indication on how he plans to staff them,” Klein said. “Not only is the PC health capital plan fully costed, it’s already under way. “We know that health care wasn’t broken overnight and that it can’t be fixed overnight, no matter what other political parties say. With the new Health Care Recruitment Fund, PCs have a plan to add staffing capacity to the health-care system, whereas the NDP just have cynical, vote-buying promises—with no plan on how to staff all these new facilities, in the middle of a worldwide staffing crisis.” Klein added that the more than $3-billion health capital plan currently underway had the backing of clinical experts and health leadership. Kinew has made almost $3 billion in election promises already without committing to continue the investments, Klein said. “More than $1.5 billion in spending is on the books for HSC alone,” Klein said. “Wab simply can’t do it without cutting projects or raising your taxes.”

"We served together as board members on the Winnipeg Police Board. While I did not always agree with his views and recommendations, I came to understand his motivation. During his campaign for Mayor, I spent time getting to know Kevin and gained respect for his integrity and honesty."

Kevin has demonstrated through his years of public service that he has the experience to listen, to work hard and I believe will be a strong voice for all the constituents of Kirkfield Park, I ask you to give Kevin the same honour you gave me, to represent Kirkfield Park in the Manitoba Legislature.


Ryan Woiden, a veteran frontline paramedic leader stated,

“Kevin has a better understanding of what paramedics need within the city of Winnipeg than any one else I’ve talked to. The province has done their diligence by looking at where the current monies go. Now let’s dot the i’s and cross the t’s and get on with it. Take my word for it. Kevin Klein’s perspective on how paramedics can take pressure off of the current healthcare system is right. These are the kind of ideas that paramedics can get behind. This group of  paramedics that handle all our Community Paramedic work within Winnipeg. Community Paramedics have a scope that allows them to treat people in their homes instead of a trip to a hospital. They also can connect patients to other Health Care team members   Instead of filling ER waiting rooms. I’m hoping some of the 2000 health care professionals to be hired will include Advanced Care Paramedics too.”

Klein said “I appreciate the kind words from Ryan. As a City Councillor for most of Kirkfield Park, I took the time to listen to people on the front lines. I wanted an understanding of what they were experiencing and discussing potential solutions. That is how I came to know Ryan and respect his position on and opinions on these matters. If I am fortunate to become the MLA for Kirkfield Park I will continue listening to those on the front lines, working together to find solutions and be brave enough to suggest the changes necessary.”

I had the honour of serving most of you as our City Councillor. We stood shoulder to shoulder to save the Westwood Library and the John Blumberg Public Golf Course. In my four years we did more park and green space improvements than anyone before me. We were able to fund major repairs to Allard arena and put in Pickle ball courts at the KW Community Centre.


I stood with people who were facing thousands in penalties from the City of Winnipeg on Augie to get a reprieve so residents could address the issues with their builder. We planted more trees along the perimeter near the Oaks and provided funding for a canoe launch sign that residents wanted.


I have proven through my role as a city councillor that I will stand up for my constituents and do what is in their best interest. That means if I am fortunate enough to earn your vote, if I have to fight Wab Kinew or Heather Stefanson, I am going to fight for our rights and values in Kirkfield Park.

Dear Kirkfield Park Resident,

I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, although many of you have already gotten to know me over the last four years as your city councillor.

It has been an honour to serve the people of Kirkfield Park. Together we have fought to save the Westwood Library, John Blumberg Golf Course, and had the gifted amber flashing lights in school zones accepted, with the first set installed on Bedson Street. A number of our green spaces, parks and paths have received more funding for improvements than in the last 10 years.

Additionally, we provided funding for repairs to Allard Arena, and added Pickle Ball courts to the KW Community Centre.

I am extremely proud that our work to bring Homes for Heroes to the the city which will help more than 150 homeless veterans living on the streets.

We brought many people together to find solutions and move the project forward. With your support, I challenged how your hard-earned money was spent and fought to increase accountability and transparency in government.

But there is more work to be done, such as, improving Health Care and specifically the services at the Grace Hospital. We also need to develop more senior housing in our community so you have the choice to stay in our community. Crime is a growing concern and as the former Chair of the Winnipeg Police Board I will push for solutions to address the issues that are affecting us. I will work to make certain the transit shelters are safe for everyone, and that we implement a focused program to crack down on the loud vehicles and drag racing occurring Sunday nights in our neighbourhoods.

I will fight for much needed funding to make improvements at both Allard Arena and the Kirkfield-Westwood community centre.

This is why I am asking for your vote to be your MLA representing Kirkfield Park. I have been a strong voice for our community during the last four years, and I am committed to being that same strong voice in the Legislature.
