The NDP also promises to lower the cost of cell and internet plans
TORONTO – Today, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh pledges to provide health benefits to part time and contract workers. He also pledged to immediately bring-in pharmacare and dentacare programs for people.
“So many Canadians don’t have workplace benefits any more, and have been left on their own to figure out how to pay for sky-high cell and internet services they need to work,” said Singh. “Bill Morneau – the Liberals’ multi-millionaire Finance Minister – had the nerve to tell young people that they ‘have to accept’ an uncertain job future. We can do so much better.”
“It’s a story that’s we’ve heard for so long – Liberals and Conservative promise help during elections, but they get into power and side with the wealthiest,” said Singh. “With different choices we can get better results. New Democrats are going to fight to get you the benefits you need – pharmacare and dental care at no cost, and cutting your cell phone bills every month.”
Jagmeet claims that his plan includes pharmacare and dentacare programs to make life more affordable for millions of people in Canada, starting right away in 2020.
