CUPE Researcher Toby Sanger took a look at each party’s record, based on their time in federal and provincial governments.

His conclusion is that, based on factors like balanced budgets, deficits, taxes, and spending, NDP governments have consistently performed the best.

And which party is the worst? For tax increases, it’s the Liberals. For deficits, the Conservatives.
