WINNIPEG _ Manitoba says it plans to overhaul how Crown corporations operate to save money and to make them more accountable.
The changes would affect Manitoba Hydro, Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries, Manitoba Public Insurance and the Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation.
The government says the changes are needed to improve how decisions are made and to more clearly spell out responsibilities and liabilities.
Crown Services Minister Ron Schuler says the legislation will be introduced later this year.
He says the changes will also eliminate overlap and duplication within government.
Schuler says maintaining the status quo would leave Crown corporations vulnerable to interference.
