Canadian companies are investing $72 billion in Barbados, an island with an economy the size of Gatineau. Think that’s strange? Me too.
I believe that all Canadians deserve a decent wage, no matter the industry, work hours or region. Decent wages are the foundation for a good quality of life.
In 2015, we will accomplish what Jack Layton set out to do. With Tom Mulcair at the helm, the NDP has a clear vision for building a sustainable society and replacing an incompetent government plagued by scandal. Middle-class families work hard, but they are barely keeping their heads above water. This is true both in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie and across the country. Incomes are down and consumer debt is up. The Conservatives have bet the farm on oil and gas companies, while completely ignoring the environment. This needs to stop!
