Ahead of tomorrow's provincial election - a last batch of campaign promises.

The Conservatives said they'll spend $30-million to build active transportation paths for walking and cycling - and ban recycling material in landfills.

The Liberals promised more than a billion dollars in new annual spending on seniors' home care, road work and child care spaces - and to repair neglected services and infrastructure.

The New Democrats said they would undo some of the health care reforms undertaken by the Tory government - and spend more on roads and water treatment projects.

And the Greens announced plans for moving to zero waste in Manitoba, including cost-sharing municipal composting programs and banning single-use plastics.
