The Winnipeg Sun reports that the Manitoba Liberal Platform includes putting FASD warning labels on bottles of alcohol sold in Manitoba.

According to the Strong Families, Healthy Communities platform on the Manitoba Liberal Party web site, the Liberal Party will “Better prevent and fight FASD and addictions to reduce crime with smart approaches, not reactionary ones.” TB, dental caries in children, and diabetes are other health issues that get a special mention in the platform.
