Forging Our Path to a Stronger Manitoba Manitoba Stronger Together's Policy Platform for the 2023 Provincial Election
6. Justice and Policing: Upholding the Rule of Law and Ensuring Safety for Manitobans At Manitoba Stronger Together we recognize the critical importance of a robust justice system that upholds the rule of law and ensures safety for all Manitobans.
Our policy advocates for a comprehensive review of trends within the province, including prosecutory and policing priorities, while reaffirming the role of the judiciary. We aim to hire back faithful public servants impacted by the government's Covid-19 policies and prioritize access to the legal system for all Manitobans. In emphasizing independence from political influence, we are committed to preserving citizens' confidence in a fair and impartial justice system.
Judicial Review of Prosecutory and Policing Priorities: We will conduct a judicial review of prosecutory trends and policing priorities to ensure alignment with the principles of justice and fairness. This review will identify areas for improvement and inform future policies thereby fostering a more effective and accountable justice system.
Training and Education for Justice Professionals: Our policy prioritizes comprehensive training and ongoing education for all levels within the justice system. By investing in continuous professional development we ensure justice professionals are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to uphold the rule of law with excellence.
Mandatory Human Rights Training: To ensure that all members of the system are fully aware of constitutionally and internationally guaranteed human rights, we will implement a mandatory training policy for all levels within the justice system.
Role of the Judiciary: We will reaffirm the role of the judiciary as an independent and impartial branch of government, responsible only for interpreting and applying the law as written by the Legislature. This ensures that judicial decisions are free from political interference and guided solely by the principles of justice.
Access to the Legal System: Our policy aims to enhance access to the legal system for all Manitobans regardless of socioeconomic status. By removing barriers to justice we empower citizens to seek legal remedies and assert their rights without discrimination.
Judicial Investigation into Government Actions during the Pandemic: We commit to initiating a citizen-led judicial investigation into the government's actions during the pandemic. This investigation will provide answers to questions raised and promote transparency and accountability within the government.
Review of RCMP Involvement in Manitoba: We will conduct a comprehensive review of the use of the RCMP in Manitoba and consider potential provincial replacements. This review aims to assess the effectiveness and suitability of current policing arrangements.
Public Inquiry into Community Safety and Security: Our policy includes holding a citizen led public inquiry into community safety and security. The findings of this inquiry will inform a reorganization of policing in Manitoba, resulting in citizens reassurance that their communities are safe and that criminals are held accountable..
Stop Governance Through Regulations: we will stop and reverse the trend of setting out broad statements within legislation and then permitting unelected and often secretive regulators to write the actual rules and regulations governing many aspects of life in Manitoba. Laws must be precise and comprehensive and they must be written by elected representatives, not career bureaucrats.
Our Manitoba Stronger Together policy on justice and policing embodies our commitment to upholding the rule of law, ensuring access to justice, and fostering safety for all Manitobans.
By conducting judicial reviews, reaffirming the role of the judiciary, and initiating investigations into government actions, we promote transparency and accountability within our justice system.
We recognize that safety and security are essential for flourishing communities and we will engage citizens in shaping the future of policing in Manitoba. Through these measures we aim to create a justice system that earns public trust, upholds the rights of all Manitobans, and promotes a fair and just society for everyone in our province.
