NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says the party could pull support for Justin Trudeau's Liberals over pharamcare and health care privatization.
So the ndp has been flailing around looking for SOMETHING that will make it look relevant and threatening to 'end the non coalition coalition', and it's gained very little ground for them. Now - they're trying a new spin and this one may have a little more pull. The idea of "privatization", like what doug ford is doing in Ottawa.
This could be a real big win/big loss situation. If it catches on and the public supports the ndp in this then trudeau's in a bad spot because he doesn't control what the provinces do, and if he threatens funding this could turn on him hard, but if he doesn't do something then he could lose power and the public might turn on him. On the flipside if the public doesn't rally Jaggers could look very weak and even have some blowback on his support in several provinces.
We'll see how hard they want to push this. IF they keep promising to hold support and yet never do they're going to pay for it eventually at the polls.
