Why vote NDP?
We have become used to the idea that we’re a ‘have not’ province that depends on subsidies and handouts from Ottawa. We have become used to losing our young people to Bay Street or to the oil fields of Fort McMurray.
Instead of building on the hard work and sacrifices of earlier generations, working to make our province stronger and fairer, richer and more free, the politicians who run this province have settled for a slow slide into comfortable decline.
We can do better.
Even though our public services and infrastructure are under threat from irresponsible Conservative and Liberal management, we have an opportunity to change direction, and to make this a province that serves as an example to the rest of Canada and to the rest of the world.
This transformation will mean change, and it will mean sacrifice. It will mean making hard choices. But there is no reason to think that the people of this province cannot make this change real.
The NDP is ready with a vision of change for this province.
Ready to show that we can be a successful province that attracts immigrants from around the world.
Ready to build an economy that will lift our province up from illiteracy, poverty, and dependence.
The NDP is a party of regular people. People like you. Middle-class New Brunswickers, not professional politicians, but people who understand the challenges of raising a family in tough times and dealing with a government that’s out of touch.
The Liberals have failed to govern. The Conservatives have failed to present an alternative.
An NDP voice in the Legislature is the only way to make sure the Conservatives and Liberals don’t try to cut health and education.
Our province is at risk of complete financial collapse, and if that collapse happens, our health and education programs will be cut to the bone.
We cannot let that happen.
We have to take action, now, to turn New Brunswick around.
“Social justice and economic efficiency are two sides of the same coin. We have to talk about an economy that works for middle-class New Brunswickers. An economy that generates the wealth we need to radically reduce poverty. An economy that attracts the best immigrants, that supports a sustainable health care system and the best education system. That is the economy we want."
– Roger Duguay, former leader of NDP
