NDP Leader Tom Mulcair took his Campaign for Change to Montreal on Tuesday. He was joined by the NDP’s team of MPs and new candidates on Mount Royal, where he outlined NDP successes for Canadians.
“Over the last four years, NDP Members of Parliament have fought tirelessly for the priorities of the middle-class to help them get ahead and to reverse the damage done by Stephen Harper,” said Mulcair. “NDP MPs also fought for the bilingualism of Supreme Court justices and it is thanks to the hard work of New Democrats that Officers of Parliament must now be bilingual.”
NDP Members of Parliament forced the Conservatives to put an end to pay-to-pay bank fees and abolish the unfair tax on feminine hygiene products. New Democrats also led the charge to defend the Saint Lawrence River beluga nursery in Cacouna, protect Canada’s lakes and rivers, and ban harmful plastic microbeads in consumer products.
“Stephen Harper’s plan isn’t working and he’s out of touch with the priorities of Quebecers and all Canadians,” said Mulcair. “Our plan is built on the enduring values of respect, accountability, and an unwavering commitment to focus the government’s priorities on helping the middle class get ahead.”
