Crown lands, a new Justice Centre for Dauphin, and improvements to local health care were some of the topics discussed during a Saturday morning town hall hosted by the Manitoba NDP.

Party leader Wab Kinew was joined by Dauphin candidate Ron Kostyshyn for the event. 

Kinew says he was very impressed with both the turnout and the kinds of questions that were brought up on Saturday.

"You can tell by the questions that people are not holding back.  People are frustrated with health care, they are frustrated with the PC's approach to the Agriculture industry, and people are giving us a very straightforward account of what they need for the Parkland region and for Dauphin to succeed."

It's the second time within the past month that Kinew has visited Dauphin, a community that holds a special place with his family.

"Because of the time that my wife Lisa spent here in the community, serving as a physician.  One of the things Lisa told me is that we need more rural representation on our team.  And you have a great candidate in Ron Kostyshyn here in this area.  And I am coming back to the community and the region time and time again because I believe in Ron, and I want him to get elected.  I know that it is time for the Parkland to have a voice in the Legislature."
