We need another Green MPP at Queens Park because we understand that we went through the pandemic together and we must come out of it together. We can build back smarter and make Kingston and Ontario more affordable, healthier, and cleaner!
CLIMATE ACTION & GREEN JOBS
We can build better homes and create thousands of jobs with a green retrofit program for public buildings, homes, apartments and small businesses. And by investing wisely, Ontario can become a leader in EV manufacturing and low pollution travel.
REIMAGINE OUR CITIES AND NEIGHBOURHOODS
We can reshape our neighbourhoods to make it easier to get around, whether walking, cycling or taking public transit, to provide access to park space, and to get a handle on soaring housing prices so that everyone can afford a roof over their head.
PROTECT LOCAL FOOD & WATER
By protecting forests, farmland, and wetlands, we ensure that local food continues to grow and water continues to flow. Nature is our best defence against floods, storms and other climate threats.
CARE FOR OUR CHILDREN
Children need safe spaces to learn and grow. And parents won’t be able to return to work if they’re anxious about the safety of their kids. Let’s invest in schools and childcare so reopening doesn’t put our children at risk.
RESTORE DIGNITY FOR ELDERS
The long-term care system must be overhauled to put care and compassion over profit. We need at least 4 hours of care per day, and to increase wages for PSW.
SUPPORT LOCAL INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES
We need a government that supports small businesses and non-profits and help them get back on their feet safely. People want to Buy Local. Let’s make sure they can.
UPHOLD OUR NEW RESPECT FOR WORKERS
It’s time to show real respect for working people. They deserve to be paid fairly and get paid sick leave. We need to raise the minimum wage and get rid of sick notes.
BASIC INCOME GUARANTEE
We must ensure that everyone can afford to put food on the table and that no one falls through the cracks. We can plug the gaps in our social safety net with a Basic Income.
REBALANCE HEALTH CARE
Covid-19 put enormous strain on our healthcare system. Let’s take this chance to focus on primary and community care, on illness prevention and on mental health.
Tackling systemic racism must include dramatic changes to how we ensure community safety so that we protect racialized lives, and build trust and equality across Ontario
