NDP Platform

The NDP has an affordable plan to get Ottawa working for your family – one practical step at a time. For too long Ottawa has focused on the priorities of the well-connected, not the priorities of your family. Together we’re going to fix that.

The New Democrat plan is focused on improving your health services, rewarding the job creators, strengthening your pension, and making your life a little more affordable.

These are the priorities Jack Layton has been fighting for my whole life. And these are Jack Layton’s commitments to you in this election.

These commitments are fully costed – right from the first year. We won’t wait to lift all seniors out of poverty. We won’t wait to start hiring more doctors and nurses. We will act starting now.

Jack Layton promises you this: the morning after the election, Jack Layton will get down to work on your practical key priorities. As Prime Minister, Jack Layton will work with others to get Ottawa working for you. And Jack Layton will deliver results in the first 100 days. You can hold Jack Layton to it.

You know where Jack Layton stands. After May 2, Jack Layton will deliver for you. And Jack Layton won’t stop until the job’s done.
