2018 has been a tough year for people where I’m from.
People have lost their jobs in communities like Thompson and are set to lose them in Flin Flon. Communities like Churchill are working hard to regain their footing.
First Nations continue to face a housing crisis. Education is grossly underfunded. People are literally dying because of the lack of health care supports.
People have had enough. It’s the same across the country. People are falling further behind.
All this, while their government sits on the sidelines.
Instead of fighting for good jobs, this government is fighting workers like postal workers, speeding up the hollowing out of industries through foreign takeovers and job killing trade deals.
Instead of fighting climate change, this government is buying a pipeline. They aren’t part of the solution. That’s part of the problem.
My message to the Prime Minister: Enough of the benefits to your rich corporate friends. Enough of hollow words on climate change. Enough of pushing Canadians further behind.
Enough is enough.
