As we hit the midway point of the current campaign, I think the leader debates clearly show the different choices Canadian’s have on Election Day, May 2.

I was proud that Jack Layton put public health care on the agenda, along with the need for a national pharmacare plan.

He also spoke to the need for child care, home care and concrete measures to invest in municipal infrastructure right across Canada.

I thought Jack’s best line was when he told Stephen Harper that he needn’t build more jails because so many crooks are already in the Canadian Senate. The NDP’s call for abolishing the Senate, the only federal party advocating for this, is a position shared by most Canadians.

Finally, I am incredibly proud of the 21 CUPE members and staff that are running for the NDP. They are staunch advocates for public services and deserve our full support.

Elections are about choices. And our choice is the NDP, to stand-up for public services and to build a better Canada.
