TORONTO – Andrea Horwath and the NDP are ready to make life easier, healthier, and more affordable for people living in Toronto. The NDP’s Toronto team gathered Sunday to release the Toronto platform.
“Everyday Torontonians just want to get back on solid ground. And together, we can. We can make homes more affordable, and staff up our health care system. We can lift people out of poverty, and make sure people don’t have to wait for transit,” said Horwath. “We have the plan to do it, and we have an incredible Toronto team of candidates.”
The NDP’s Toronto Platform makes bold commitments to:
“Our bold plan meets people where they are and works for Torontonians,” said Kristyn Wong-Tam, NDP candidate for Toronto Centre. “We want our neighbours in Toronto to be able to build their best life here. To support that dream, the NDP will deliver on affordable homes, publicly funded mental health services, better transit and so much more. It’s about time Torontonians have a provincial government working for everyday people instead of Ford’s buddies.”
The Toronto Platform also includes the NDP’s commitments to make Ontario net-zero by 2050, create a Provincial Arts Strategy, end homelessness within 10 years, and to support small businesses.
“Scarborough has been left behind by Doug Ford and the Liberals before him,” added Doly Begum, NDP candidate for Scarborough Southwest. “But the NDP sees and hears our communities. That’s why we’re making crucial investments in Scarborough’s transit, lowering auto insurance by 40 per cent, and adding the health care workers we need to bring wait times down.”
“Doug Ford spent four years cutting what matters to us, while giving his buddies everything they want. And Steven Del Duca could have made life better for Torontonians when he was in cabinet — and he chose not to. Now, the Liberals are too weak to win. But the NDP is just 10 seats away. If Toronto comes together with Andrea, we can stop Ford’s cuts and finally start to fix what really matters to Toronto families.”
