Live on CBC. Mr Singh starts by thanking the First Nations and apologizing in a generic way.
NDP losing much support to the Greens and the Liberals. They need a big campaign.

"New Deal for Canada" starts by referring to the Doug Ford horror show in Ontario.

Trudeau great at symbolic gestures but not there for people when it counts

almost Trumpesque.

Hoid
#22
people at the top to contribute "a little more"

1% tax on the richest of the rich.

end of speech with standard NDP stuff

the big reveal is the "historic expansion" of healthcare

that is probably tailored to Ontario
 
Hoid
#28
My view: this is not going to be enough. The healthcare thing is probably spot on - because all sorts of Ontarians are waking up to the reality that Ford is going to **** them over in order to fund a subway for Toronto but on the national front it does not address the issue that is killing them,.

Rachel Notley in the process of losing her own government in Alberta has managed to pretty much ruin the entire NDP as the reply to conservatism.

That mantle now goes to the Liberals (east of Alberta) and the Greens (west of Alberta)

Singh has done nothing to defuse the specter of an NDP government threatening working class Canadians with financial ruin in order to facilitate an oil pipeline.

Frankly I doubt he can.
