After five years of Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, it is clear they have no real commitment to improving the lives of all Canadians. They have put the interest of banks, the finance industry, oil companies and the rest of their Bay street backers ahead of Canadian workers.
Now is the time to say enough. This federal election is our chance to choose real leadership, with a real vision for a better Canada. We need a federal government that will stand up for Canadian workers.
All Canadians deserve a government that will protect and strengthen our public health care system, will help everyone save for retirement, and will stop irresponsible corporate tax cuts from harming our economy. Jack Layton’s NDP is the only party with the proven record in providing Canada with this kind of leadership.
Over the coming weeks the Canadian Union of Public Employees will be tracking the party platforms on these and other important issues, so our members can see where the parties stand, and which one Canada can trust to lead. We will be sharing this important information with members coast-to-coast-to-coast, and posting it here on cupe.ca.
CUPE members are Canadian voters, and our voices will be heard in the upcoming campaign and on Election Day.
