New Brunswick New Democrats release full campaign platform and costing
The New Brunswick New Democrats have released their full campaign platform for the upcoming provincial election, saying it would make a difference for people now.
NDP Leader Jennifer McKenzie said the platform represents the values of her party and the people of the province.
The party is promising a $15-per-hour minimum wage, public home care and more affordable post-secondary education.
Campaigning in Saint John, McKenzie said the platform should send a clear message to New Brunswickers that her party is listening to them.
She said the full platform of promises would cost $766 million, but generate revenues of $723 million, resulting in a deficit of $43 million in 2019-2020.
The NDP have not had a member in the New Brunswick legislature since 2005.
