(Mba-NDP-Raffle)

Manitoba New Democrats are poking fun at Conservative Premier Brian Pallister's much-publicized vacation home in Costa Rica by raffling off a vacation to the country as part of a party fundraiser.

On their website, the N-D-P say the 45-hundred-dollar, one-week trip for two to an all-inclusive resort in Tamarindo is close to Pallister's private villa.

Witness Barry Steiner tells CTV Saskatoon he saw police with guns drawn and heard numerous shots as officers including one with a police dog chased a suspect on foot through the city's downtown streets yesterday.
