Where do we stand? What’s our vision for the future of Newfoundland and Labrador?
Here is the policy platform we laid before the people of Newfoundland and Labrador in the 2015 general election. It is a responsible plan, a sound alternative.
Our platform is about making things better for people, better for communities and better for families in our great province.
Our record is solid. We have worked hard and celebrated significant gains: employment growth, higher incomes, new schools, new roads, new health facilities and services, and a new pride in ourselves and this great place we call home.
Our accomplishments are many, but there is always more to do.
Leadership is our foundation. On it, we have four pillars to build a better society.
The first pillar is HEALTH – programs and services to address our mental and physical health needs, when and where we need them, and a renewed focus that enhances access to the food and fitness that we need to live healthier lives.
The second pillar is OPPORTUNITY – investing in employment growth, small business, rural enterprise, innovation, all the things that create jobs.
The third pillar is PEOPLE – families, child care, education, apprenticeships, affordable housing, long-term care, affordable living for seniors, and poverty reduction.
The fourth pillar is our ECONOMY – a renewable five-year roadmap through the immediate fiscal challenges and back to surplus – a progressive fiscal plan that doesn’t involve deep cuts.
