It's budget day in Manitoba -- the first for the province's N-D-P government since winning last October's election.

N-D-P campaign promises, such as rebates on electric vehicles, a bigger tax credit for fertility treatments, and free prescription birth control, are expected in the fiscal plan.

Manitoba has run deficits in every year but two since 2009, and the N-D-P has promised to balance the budget within its first term.

At the same time, it has also promised to boost funding to municipalities, schools, and health-care workers.
