Party Leader Seeking Majority for New Democrats

HAMILTON – POLITICS – Election 2022 in Ontario is underway. Voters go to the polls on June 2nd, 2022.

Today, New Democrat party leader Andrea Horwath was officially nominated.

“Life keeps getting harder. Things have got to change now — and together, we can be the ones to change it,” said Horwath.  “People are counting on us. Health care is in crisis. The cost of housing is out of control. Everyday families just want to get back on solid ground. Doug Ford’s cuts won’t fix it. Feathering his buddies’ nests at our expense won’t fix it. And Steven Del Duca was a Kathleen Wynne cabinet minister who cut and privatized. He sure won’t fix what he helped break. But together, we can fix what matters most to people.”

The New Democrats hold 38 seats.

Horwath says, “The NDP is as few as 10 seats away from government. The Liberals have just seven seats. They’re focusing on 2026”.

“Instead of Doug Ford’s plan to cut $2.7 billion, let’s come together so we can invest in health care, home care and bringing down the price of homes. Instead of letting Ford cut coverage, let’s come together so we can add all mental health care to OHIP,” said Horwath.

“We have the plan to do it. We have the team to do it. And together, we can.”
