More emphasis on single Canadians

Every election, parties focus on the needs of families while singles are consistently left out. If a single person lives in a condo or house, and a couple lives next door, a greater percentage of the singles' income goes towards the costs for the same square footage. This is unfair to the growing number of people delaying marriage, or opting out all together. Also, by not realizing that singles have fewer lifestyle retraints, you loose out on their economic contributions. Where is the incentive to vacation within Canada and contribute to local economies when going to the US or overseas doesn't have much of a financial deterrent. Many young, single people invest in their health and use costly fitness programs to do so. If I am potentially saving our healthcare funds by doing so, why am I not rewarded? Those are just a few examples, but there are more of you connect with people.

    I agree with Ashley. All this constant and tiresome talk about families on the part of po[iticians, including NDP politicians has its origins in the anti-women and anti-LGBTQ movements of 30 years ago or more, These right wing groups were always talking about “family values” when in fact their views were anything but supportive of the true needs of families.

    It really annoys me that progressive politicians feel so compelled to adopt the language of reactionaries.
