The members of the 34th Manitoba Legislature were elected in the Manitoba general election held in April 1988.[1] The legislature sat from July 21, 1988, to August 7, 1990.[2]

The Progressive Conservative Party led by Gary Filmon formed the government.[1]

Sharon Carstairs of the Liberal Party was Leader of the Opposition.[3]

Denis Rocan served as speaker for the assembly.[1]

Native leader Elijah Harper blocked the introduction of the motion to ratify the Meech Lake Accord and so the Accord was not approved by the June 23, 1990, deadline.[4]

Following the failure of the Accord, Premier Filmon called a snap election in September 1990 to take advantage of an increase in his popularity because he was now perceived as a strong defender of Manitoba's interests.[5]

There were two sessions of the 34th Legislature:[2]

Session Start End
1st July 21, 1988 December 20, 1988
2nd May 18, 1989 June 22, 1990

George Johnson was Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba.[6]
