'Affordable, responsible and fits inside a balanced budget, each and every year.'
Hamilton (12 Jan. 2006) – New Democratic Party Leader Jack Layton has released the party's Jan. 23 election platform, pledging that it will produce results for people in the next parliament.
The NDP plan outlines action to help youth and seniors, protect and improve public health care, and a plan to clean up politics and keep budgets balanced while preventing any tax increases.
“Our plan to address these issues is affordable, responsible and fits inside a balanced budget, each and every year,” Layton said Wednesday in Hamilton. “The federal government has enough money and doesn’t need to raise its taxes to do its job.”
The comprehensive document platform includes:
“I’m calling on Canadians to reject the threats and manipulation of the Liberal Party, and the reckless promises of the Conservative Party,” Layton said. “Canadians have a better choice. You have a third option. You can vote for change that puts working families first. You can vote NDP.” NUPGE
