Mulcair releases plan to build the Canada of our dreams

NDP would expand healthcare, create affordable childcare, and kick-start the economy

Today, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair released the NDP election platform, outlining his ambitious plan to work with Canadians and build the Canada of our dreams. The comprehensive document included commitments to kick-start the economy and create jobs, support and expand Canada’s health care system, and take action on climate change.

“This election is about who will stand up for health care, jobs and the environment and who can be trusted to fight for what matters most to middle-class families,” said Mulcair. “After decades of switching between Liberal and Conservative scandals, my focus is on replacing Stephen Harper and working with Canadians to build the Canada of our dreams.”

The NDP’s plan to help Canadian families get ahead includes help for parents with affordable childcare, support for small businesses, the expansion of Canada’s health care system, and more opportunities for young people. The NDP platform also outlined Mulcair’s plan to address climate change and bolster Canada’s manufacturing and auto sectors.

“While Justin Trudeau has signed on with Stephen Harper’s TPP, which will mean lower wages, higher costs for life-saving medications and tens of thousands of Canadians being thrown out of work, my plan will create jobs and introduce a national affordable prescription drug plan,” said Mulcair. “Stephen Harper failed to get the best deal for Canada and Justin Trudeau is ready to go along with him, as he did with C-51 and the Keystone pipeline.”

Canadians are ready for change and the NDP is ready to make parliament work for them. With just 35 more MPs, Tom Mulcair and the NDP will defeat and replace Stephen Harper’s Conservatives.
