The NDP submission identifies the partyâ€™s proposals to implement a universal, comprehensive, public pharmacare program, close tax loopholes for the wealthiest, ensure future generations have a livable environment, and make it possible for all Canadians to access secure and affordable housing.
â€œOur system continues to be rigged in favour of the richest people and the biggest corporations while Canadian families pay the price,â€� said Julian. â€œWe still have 1.2 million children living in poverty and hundreds of First Nations communities living under boil water advisories. The Liberal government must change course to help people. This yearâ€™s budget is their last chance to show the courage needed to tackle these inequalities head-on.â€�
