We need a government that will invest in the fundamental building blocks on which our neighbourhoods rely – from healthcare to transit, child care to public parks, bridges to local agriculture. The current situation is not working for many Canadians. Canadians are being asked to pay out-of-pocket for everything from prescription medicine to dental care, while child care is becoming increasingly unaffordable. Many households are having trouble making ends meet. We want to invest in our communities, because strong communities are the foundation on which Canada has been built, and on which Canada depends.
