Jon Gerrard

Candidate for River Heights

Be Part of Change In River Heights

I am running because I have a passion for helping and improving the lives of others in River Heights – in my own community – and our province. I have worked hard to represent the people of River Heights for more than 16 years. I have the skills and the knowledge to make a difference for people in River Heights and for Manitobans.

River Heights is a place for families. I will ensure access to affordable and high-quality childcare, eliminate PST on kids’ sporting goods, and remove the land-transfer tax for first-time homebuyers.

Our students are graduating with too much debt, and that is why I support a Liberal government to convert Manitoba student loans to non-repayable grants, starting in the 2016-17 academic year.

Part of a thriving community is making sure we have a health-care system that works. I will work to improve homecare to take pressure off hospitals, shorten wait times and ensure that Manitoba has a dedicated stroke unit. I will also continue to be a champion for improved mental health coverage under Medicare.

Manitoba is currently not managing provincial government expenditures well. We need better fiscal management, which is done without threatening the services that matter most. With my training in economics and experience in federal and provincial politics, I have the knowledge to achieve this wisely.
