    Today I asked how this government can make progress on its homeless and poverty reduction strategy without clear targets. Specifically, how can this government determine what progress has been made without tracking the death of homeless people across the province? Ontarians are looking for a clear commitment to poverty reduction programs in the budget, which will be released later today.

    February 24, 2016 STATEMENT BY NDP MPP SARAH CAMPBELL ON THE HEALTH AND PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY DECLARED BY FIRST NATIONS LEADERS “It is simply unacceptable that any community should have to declare a state of emergency in order to get attention for basic and preventable health care in this province. Nishnawbe Aski Nation communities within my riding – specifically in the Sioux Lookout region – have declared a state of emergency today, left to appeal to both provincial and federal Liberal governments to finally act on the long known crisis of access to acute health care, clean water, housing fit for habitation, and mental health supports to prevent more suicides, especially among young people. It is simply unacceptable how an entirely preventable but potentially deadly infection such as rheumatic fever – that should be the stuff of Charles Dicken’s novels – is not only present in communities near Sioux Lookout, but that it exists there at the highest rate in the world. There are MRSA infections because the water is unfit for human consumption, high and preventable rates of diabetes, and an epidemic rate of youth suicides. Ontario New Democrats support these communities’ calls for the respective Ministers to immediately commit to detailed action plans, intervention and investment.” -30-

    February 22, 2016 Wynne’s 'two Ontarios' leaves families paying highest auto insurance rates while industry reaps historic profits: NDP QUEEN’S PARK - Today in the legislature, Government & Consumer Services critic Jagmeet Singh (MPP Bramalea-Gore-Malton) blasted the Liberal government for breaking a 2013 promise to both the NDP and the people of Ontario to decrease auto insurance rates by 15%. “Premier, why should Ontarians expect the Liberal government to keep its promises when it continues to break them over and over again?” asked Singh. Premier Wynne recently dismissed her government’s broken promise to reduce rates by claiming the 15% pledge was always a “stretch goal.” Singh said the Liberal government has created two different Ontarios. “The first one is where most people live, where Ontario families pay the highest auto insurance rates in the country,” explained Singh. “Then there’s the other Ontario, where the Premier’s powerful lobbyist friends reside—like the insurance industry, which continues to enjoy historic profits.” Singh said New Democrats hope the 2016 budget will include strong commitments to improving healthcare, to creating good jobs, and to stopping the sale of Hydro One. “But like the rest of Ontario, we know better than to trust the Liberals,” said Singh. “Premier, my question is simple: what other stretch goals are in store for Ontarians in this week’s budget?” -30-

    As we go into the 2016 Ontario budget, I'm calling on this government to include the things important to people: bring down hydro rates, make life more affordable and focus on jobs and infrastructure across the north. So far, the Premier is signalling that she's got it all wrong, by focussing on bringing wine into grocery stores.

    I'm happy to report that Bill 111, my bill to end private electricity contracts for consumers has cleared another hurdle, and will be available for public hearings at the committee level in April. While at first the government denied that these private contracts continue to be a problem for consumers, it conceded that more needed to be done and brought forward its own legislation to end the practice of selling these contracts on the doorstep. I have never met anyone who has unwittingly entered into one of these contracts who has been happy with the "deal" they are getting -- as they end up paying a lot more than they bargained for. There is an important difference between Bill 111 - and the one the Liberals introduced in December - Bill 111 will provide greater consumer protection as it will outright ban these contracts from being sold - period, whereas the government only sought a half measure of restricting the sale of these contracts on the doorstep. But we know from past experience that these private retailers will always find another way... and people are fed up with feeling cheated after signing these contracts! http://895thelake.ca/news/874169301/campbells-private-members-bill-moves-public-feedback-stage

    Yesterday I spoke out in the Ontario Legislature about the need for a serious investment in transportation infrastructure across the North. Northerners will be watching for a significant investment in transportation infrastructure in next week's budget.

    This article paints a picture of a ministry that continues to drop the ball when it comes to highway maintenance. Inconsistent unplanned assessments, lack of follow through with the collection of fines and a serious lack of comprehension of the seriousness of the issue. Northerners don't need to log into a website to "track their plow"-- we need only look at the highways to know if enough is being done. Clearly the Ministry of Transportation is missing the point of highway maintenance.

    Integrity and following through on commitments seem to be "stretch goals" for this government.

    Many have picked up on the government's intent to ban the door to door sale of electricity contracts, something I have worked hard to achieve for years. What you need to know about that is that these private contracts are not being banned-- only their sale by door. And that's what the government wants you to focus on. What you need to know about the rest of this bill is troubling for anyone paying a hydro bill... And it's changes to eliminate formal opposition and oversight are articulated very well in the attached article. http://m.thestar.com/#/article/opinion/commentary/2016/01/04/queens-park-moves-to-silence-dissent-on-electricity.html
