    Running deficits, borrowing money from private-sector lenders and adding public debt to citizens while selling public assets, reducing government services, privatizing wealth and cutting taxes for corporations and the rich is not in any way "progressive". Yet, that is precisely the legacy of successive Liberal and Conservative governments. From Tommy Douglas to Allen Blakeney to Gary Doer, social democrat governments have the best record of both managing the public purse while building public services and fighting inequality.

    NDP Leader Tom Mulcair said Monday he will develop a national action plan to end violence against women and pledged millions in new funding for shelters. Speaking to supporters in Saskatoon, Mulcair said an NDP government would restore the Shelter Enhancement Program — ended under the Conservative government — with $40 million in new funding over four years. The NDP estimates that the money could create or update more than 2,100 spaces in shelters and 350 spaces in transition homes for women and children fleeing violence. Mulcair also vowed to invest money in affordable housing and homelessness programs to help women fleeing violence to find a new place to live. In a release that accompanied Mulcair's announcement, the NDP cited Statistics Canada data that showed in 2013-2014, there were more than 60,000 admissions to women's shelters across Canada. The NDP leader also promised to work with women's groups and Indigenous organizations and communities to develop a national plan aimed at ending violence against women and children, which he says will have "dedicated funding and benchmarks." "After decades of Conservative and Liberal governments, no concerted action has been taken to end violence against women," he said. Mulcair went on to reiterate his previous commitment to call an inquiry into the 1,200 missing and murdered indigenous women who have been killed or disappeared since the 1980s within 100 days of forming a government. A report in January from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, an arm of the Organization of American States, says aboriginal women in Canada are murdered or disappear at a rate four times higher than their representation in the population.

    Balancing Canada's budget will require making different - and better - choices than the Conservatives. Stop subsidizing big oil companies (several billion dollar savings), stop fighting First Nations in court ($1 billion savings), cut wasteful partisan government advertising (half a billion dollars), eliminate wasteful Senate... lots of ways to save $ for better priorities - like childcare.

    The truth? The Conservatives have a terrible record on the economy. They ran 8 straight deficits, added $150 billion to Canada's debt, racked up record trade deficits, Canadians' incomes are flat and families are carrying record household debt, business investment is low, unemployment is up, jobs are down, and we are entering Canada's second recession under Harper. Time for change in Ottawa.

    Once elected, the NDP will reverse the Conservative cuts to the CBC. Tom Mulcair pointed out the toll that years of Liberal and Conservative cuts to the CBC has taken - and how important the CBC is as a Canadian cultural, educational and uniting institution. If you care about the CBC, vote NDP on October 19.

    Childcare for families in Vancouver can be crushingly expensive: often $1200+/month per child. Under Tom Mulcair, the NDP has a plan to introduce max. $15/day childcare for families across Canada, and create tens of thousands of new daycare spaces in BC. That’s positive leadership for today’s families. But we can’t achieve this without your help. Donate today and help elect an NDP government that puts fairness first!

    The Duffy trial continues to reveal stunning new facts. Harper's claim that only two PMO staff knew of Nigel Wright's $90,000 cheque is false; his Chief of Staff Ray Novak's claim that he didn't know is false; Harper's claim that he held everyone accountable is false; and it is increasingly clear that Harper himself may have lied to Parliament, and Canadians, about what he knew, and when. It is also crystal clear that the PMO conspired to pay off Duffy's debt to cover-up the scandal. Together we can send a new government to Ottawa: one that believes in ethics, in accountability and in a vibrant democracy. Help defeat Harper's candidate in Vancouver Kingsway - please donate what you can, today. Don’t forget: You receive a 75% tax refund for every donation under $400.

    Standing up for the environment is critical to Canada. When species suffer major die-offs, we are reminded of the urgency of working together to preserve the Earth's biodiversity for our future generations. In recent years, I've been shocked by reports of the serious die-offs of pollinators - especially bumble bees and honey bees - across North America. These animals are vital to our ecosystems, our economies and our food systems. Nearly 90% of the world's plants are dependent on pollinators, including bees. As humans, we rely on them to produce the foods we consume on a daily basis - everything from apples and cucumbers, to almonds and coffee. Earlier this year, I introduced legislation that would work to eliminate the use of toxic neonicotinoids in crop pesticides - widely viewed as a major contributing factor to the collapse in bee populations. We must protect our ecosystems and all species, so we can leave a healthy and vibrant world for our children and grandchildren. If re-elected on October 19, 2015, I will continue to advocate for the protection of endangered species and the preservation of our planet's ecosystems - and save our bees and pollinators.

    This week at the Duffy trial, Canadians finally got to see emails sent by Nigel Wright (Harper’s former Chief of Staff) indicating the Prime Minister knew about the $90,000 pay-out to Duffy. It is also clear that Wright made this payment for Duffy to keep the Senate scandal quiet - a bribe in spirit, if not in law. With more dishonesty, after promising never to appoint Senators, Harper appointed 56 of his friends and allies to this undemocratic institution. We now know that many of these Senators billed taxpayers while traveling across Canada to fundraise for the Conservative Party. It’s time to end Harper’s cynical politics. Send Mr. Harper a message and help defeat his hand-picked candidate in Vancouver Kingsway by donating today: http://bit.ly/1J3Pr6s. Every little bit goes a long way and you’ll receive a 75% credit for every donation under $400. You can either send your tax dollars to the Harper government, who will use it to advance their partisan advantages - or you can help defeat them, and return most of your donation right back into your wallet! Together, we can build a better Canada.

    Harper’s Conservatives are trying to win this election (once again) by exploiting election rules. From robocalls to repeated election overspending to voter suppression, and now the longest campaign since 1872 (!!), Harper has shown nothing but disregard for fair democratic process in Canada. We deserve better. It’s time to stop Harper and elect a government that respects the democratic values that Canadians cherish. You can help by donating today to my campaign to defeat Harper’s candidate in Vancouver Kingsway - and get back most of your donation as a tax refund!!. Follow this link:

    Tom's story - Tom grew up in a middle class family, the second of 10 kids, and had to work hard for everything he got. Isn't it time we had a Prime Minister who knows what it's like to struggle, and the value of taking care of each other?

    The Harper government has the worst economic record of any government in a half century: last or near the bottom on every economic indicator, from poor job growth to low GDP to inadequate investment. If you care about Canada's economy, there is no doubt that it is time for a change.

    My favourite part of this interview with Tom Mulcair - announcing a sustainable, value-added approach to the Canadian economy: I think the country has moved forward. I think Canadians want progress. They want something other than Mr. Harper’s approach, which has killed off 400,000 manufacturing jobs and replaced them with part-time, precarious work. Canadians don’t want rip-and-ship with regards to our natural resources; they want to create value-added jobs here in Canada. That’s something Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and I agree on fully, and I think most Canadians want that. It’s been hundreds of years that, in our country, we were cutting down trees and shipping them off raw and somebody else would manufacture something and send it back to us. We’re blessed. We’ve got natural resources that other countries can only dream of, whether they’re in energy or in mining or in other areas, but we’ve got to learn that the responsible way to develop those resources is to create the jobs here, and that calls for a change of mentality. We think Canadians deserve a government that’s involved in playing a positive role to get us into markets like the technologies of green, renewable energies. That’s going to be $5 trillion around the world over the next 15 years. Canada’s not even a minor player. Other countries have gotten that, and they’ve managed to get themselves in the game. We think we should be working to create the next generation of well-paid jobs.
