Sep 25, 2019 | Politics | 0 comments

COURTENAY – NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh will bring his energetic campaign to Vancouver Island this week. Singh will join local NDP candidates Rachel Blaney and Gord Johns on Thursday to make a policy announcement in Campbell River, followed by a roundtable with local residents in Courtenay and a stop to meet with people in Parksville later in the day.

“For too long, Liberal and Conservative governments have been making life easier for the rich, and harder for everybody else,” said Singh. “People up and down Vancouver Island work hard and they tell me they just want a government that treats them fairly and has the courage to do what’s right.”

Momentum is building for the NDP campaigns in North Island—Powell River and Courtenay—Alberni, as more volunteers and new supporters get behind the NDP’s New Deal for People that invests in services people need, makes life more affordable and fights the climate crisis.

“We’re on the side of everyday families and seniors worried about making ends meet,” said Singh. “A New Democrat government will bring more affordable housing to Vancouver Island and expand our healthcare system immediately with pharmacare and dental coverage so people can use their health card instead of their credit card for the help they need.”
