Statement by the leader of the Official Opposition on Canada Day

“Today, New Democrats are proud to celebrate the 148th anniversary of the founding of our country.

“Canada Day is an opportunity to spend time with family and friends and celebrate the shared values that make Canada an open and generous country.

“We have many reasons to be proud to be Canadian, but much work remains to be done.

“The NDP has a clear vision to build a more sustainable society. Canadians can count on the NDP to bring concrete proposals to Ottawa to make life more affordable for families and make Canada a fairer country.

“Let’s continue to work together to build a better Canada for our children and grandchildren, a Canada that is a nation of freedom, democracy and equality of opportunity for all.

“On behalf of all New Democrats, I wish you and your family a safe and Happy Canada Day.”
