WINNIPEG — Manitoba's Progressive Conservatives and NDP are each accusing the other of hiding something as campaigning for the provincial election continues.

The NDP accused PC Leader Brian Pallister over the weekend of hiding the specifics of what he'd cut, noting they could include reductions to health care and education.

The Tories, meanwhile, accuse the NDP of manipulating federal figures in order to hide their plans to hike taxes.

PC Finance Critic Cameron Friesen says the NDP is counting on increases to federal infrastructure spending that weren't part of last week's federal budget, and he claims the NDP would need to raise taxes to make up the shortfall.

NDP Leader Greg Selinger announced over the weekend that he would reinvest at least four per cent of all tourism tax dollars back into the industry through Travel Manitoba, and that the NDP would help immigrant families.

The Manitoba Liberals will be releasing their party's fiscal plan later Monday.
