In a high-energy event today, surrounded by Ontarians of all ages, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath launched her campaign platform, a Plan that Makes Sense.
“People are ready for change, and I believe most people are looking for change that makes sense,” said Horwath. “I’ve heard you, I respect you, and as Premier, I will deliver.”
Horwath’s plan outlined how an NDP government would make life more affordable for families, create jobs, end wasteful spending of Ontario tax dollars, and invest in healthcare and education.
Horwath’s presentation and compelling delivery got strong positive reactions online, while the plan was welcomed by advocates for families, children, students, teachers, and creative industries.
“The plan is good for children, good for families and good for Ontario…The NDP plan ensures no child care cuts for communities, and will improve quality in child care - a huge benefit to children and families. The plan will prevent closures of centres, a smart financial strategy”
