Promesses de PC

Halve the tax rate for the lowest provincial income tax bracket over 4 years

For the average income of $50,000, that amounts to savings of $1,900 per year by 2028, or roughly the equivalent of an extra paycheque every year, providing long-term tax relief for Manitobans." — pcmanitoba.com, 2023-09-05

Remove PST on trees and flowers

"To put more ‘green’ back into Manitoba streets and gardens, a re-elected PC government will remove the PST from the sale of trees and flowers, Janice Morley-Lecomte, PC candidate for Seine River, announced today.

“We want every Manitoba family to have the opportunity to beautify their homes and neighbourhoods, and dig into the benefits of gardening,” said Morley-Lecomte. “More trees and plants mean cleaner air and healthier communities. We believe these measures will make home and community greening efforts more affordable, and help us all add an extra splash of nature to our streets.”

Fruit and vegetable plants are already exempt from PST, Morley-Lecomte noted. Extending the exemption will build on the PCs’ commitment in Budget 2023 to plant an extra 1 million trees every year in rural, urban, and Indigenous communities across Manitoba over the next decade, she said." — pcmanitoba.com, retrieved 2023-09-17

Biographie

provient du site Web du parti

Jeff Bereza has been involved in the agriculture industry across Canada since the early 1990s.

Shortly after starting his career with a small, start-up organic fertilizer company, he became the western Canadian sales manager for UK based micronutrient company Phosyn PLC.

After selling Phosyn’s first litre of micronutrient in Canada, he spent the next 10 years growing the business before moving on to inoculant company Becker-Underwood. Jeff then joined Ceres Global Seeds as Director of Sales and Marketing, successfully growing the business to become the leading independent soybean company across western Canada. He is currently the National Director of Sales for NexucBioAg, where he coaches a team of 12 to develop sales processes for inoculant and fertilizer.

Jeff is a results-oriented leader and a proven relationship-builder with the ability to lead strong teams while balancing multiple interests. This is evidenced in his role of Chair of the Municipal Board of Manitoba, which he recently stepped away from after 8 years. During that time, Jeff oversaw a process that was successful in clearing a backlog of appeals expected to take 10-plus

years in less than 2 years. This has saved Manitobans close to $4M in recent years.

A lifelong resident of Portage la Prairie, Jeff is a former city councillor and an avid community builder. One of his proudest achievements, during his time as city councillor, was helping to bring Portage la Prairie’s Stride Place recreation facility from conception to reality. Jeff’s “can-do” attitude, positive energy, and leadership abilities are widely sought on various boards, committees, and organizations near and far. It is these abilities that he hopes to bring to the Manitoba Legislature as the next MLA for Portage la Prairie.

He and his wife Lynne have two adult daughters and two grandchildren.
