NDP: Jagmeet showed Canadians he’s the fighter they need

DURING the final debate of the campaign on Thursday, the NDP said their leader Jagmeet Singh called out Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau for his failures and showed Canadians he’s a strong, compassionate fighter for the supports they need.

“Justin Trudeau has spent the campaign like he spent the last six years – saying the right things but having no interest in following through. Canadians have stopped believing him,” said Singh. “If Justin Trudeau wanted to follow through on his commitments, like clean drinking water to First Nations and making life more affordable for families across Canada, he had the chance. Instead, he gave billionaires a free ride and called an election to get more power for himself. He’s spent the campaign like he spent the last six years – saying the right things but having no interest in following through. Canadians have stopped believing him. They know they can’t afford any more of his empty promises.”

The NDP said that during the debate, Trudeau couldn’t explain why he called an election instead of delivering on his promises to Canadians.

It said that on climate change, Trudeau couldn’t defend his record of climate failure. Singh wouldn’t let him get away with excuses and more empty promises – “you had six years.”

The NDP noted: “[Trudeau] talked about clean drinking water to First Nations but didn’t make it happen. He said he would move to make medications more affordable, but he completely left pharmacare out of his last budget and his platform. He promised to tackle the housing crisis, which he’s made worse,  but did nothing while house prices skyrocketed. He promised affordable childcare, but called an election before he could see it through. And he dismissed Jagmeet’s calls for paid sick leave throughout the pandemic, then cynically made it a campaign commitment. And he denied the truth that he is taking Indigenous kids to court.”
“Canadians are struggling through serious challenges, but rather than help them Justin Trudeau is focused on gaining more power for himself,” said Singh. “Mr. Trudeau is big on talk but short on action. After six years, Canadians know they can’t afford any more of his empty promises. It’s clear we can’t afford more of that. I’m not Justin Trudeau. I will fight for working people and deliver.”
