Alongside my colleagues in the NDP, I’ve been fighting hard for your health. Because of our efforts, Budget 2023 includes the Canada Dental Care Plan – providing dental coverage for lower-income uninsured individuals, families, and seniors.
The NDP has also fought hard for cost-of-living relief. This resulted in the 2023 Grocery Rebate, providing an additional tax rebate to help you balance the rising price of groceries.
Though we were able to get some money back in your pockets, we were disappointed by Budget 2023’s failure to address the housing crisis. No new funding is allocated to expand the stock of affordable homes and no investments have been made to expand non-profit social housing.
