For the first time in a long time I am excited for an election!
If you look at Canadian history, specifically the last 50 years, you’ll see a society that has progressed to benefit many largely due to government policies: universal medicare, anti-discrimination laws, Indigenous rights, LGBTQ equality. But we are not done. Women still need policies that reduce their barriers to make equal pay and safety a reality.
The NDP has a plan to see more progress happen.
Their affordable childcare policy means recognizing how it’s time to give women the opportunity to have safe, available childcare so they can pursue career goals and income opportunities like men traditionally have.
They will also implement a national action plan to end violence against women and girls. Finally, a government that is proposing tangible solutions to end domestic violence and rape. We have improved the conditions of so many groups already in Canada and we have the opportunity to continue the progress of humanity by voting NDP this election!
