The Green Party of Manitoba is speaking about flyers they say misrepresent their policies and plans.
The Green Party candidate David Nickarz said the NDP has flyers in Wolseley saying if elected, the Greens will cut poverty programs.
Nickarz said that's only half story.
If elected, the party will cut the child benefit program, the rent assist program and the 55-plus junior program, but will replace them with something better.
It's called the guaranteed annual income program. The party said this program will cut poverty in Manitoba by half in just one year.
The NDP said the information comes straight from the Green Party’s website.
Rob Altemeyer's campaign they need to explain their policy and Manitoba needs to protect programs, especially the Rent Assist program in Wolseley.
