After selfies and photobombs galore over the summer months, it is time for our federal politicians to get down to the business at hand. Here are CUPE’s priorities:

  • Develop a new national health accord, including improved access to necessary prescription medicine.
  • Create a national framework to develop affordable and quality child care.
  • Fix corporate tax loopholes.
  • Work toward a fair election system.
  • Get infrastructure funding right, focusing on public transit, social infrastructure and green infrastructure without resorting to expensive public-private partnerships.
  • Repeal C-51, Harper’s dangerous spy bill that threatens the civil liberties and democratic freedoms of all people living in Canada.
