‘Fairer, greener and more prosperous’


The NDP’s motion calling on the Prime Minister to meet with the premiers was defeated this evening. Thomas Mulcair is unimpressed.

Today, the Conservatives once again chose to tell Canadians they’re on their own to face the turbulent global economy by voting against the New Democrat motion to get the country back on track. The Conservatives refuse to work with the official opposition and the provinces to build a balanced and sustainable economy where no one is left behind.

They continue to prove their incompetence by weakening rural regions and cutting the services Canadians rely on. Canada’s unemployment rate remains high and household debt has reached a peak, but the Conservatives continue to stand idly by. The official opposition will continue calling on the Conservatives for concrete action on the economy. We will continue to put forward practical solutions to improve the lives of Canadians.

New Democrats want our children to inherit a fairer, greener and more prosperous country. We will continue to work in the interest of all Canadians proving we are ready to replace Stephen Harper.


‘Fairer, greener and more prosperous’

  1. I think the NDP’s centrist economic vision is much more credible than Harper’s right-wing ideological one (especially considering the same ideology caused the recent global economic meltdown we have yet to recover from.)

    All Harper has done is take credit for the work of others and squander the advantages he inherited from the previous Liberal government.

    I’m looking forward to hearing from the Liberals on the economy, when they select their next leader. In my opinion, Ignatieff made a huge mistake handing Harper the economy in the last election. He should have ran on the Liberal’s impressive record.

    “Much of the country’s resilience stems from policies—such as bank regulation and sound public finances—which predate Mr Harper.” (The Economist 2010.)

    • And in hindsight Jack[ who i did like ,mostly] made a mistake when he chose Harper over Martin[ who i mostly didn’t much like].; at least for the country, if not for the fortunes of the NDP. It’s worked out marvelously that way.

      • That is but one reason why Jack was just a politician and not the supposed saint we are now supposed to revere.

  2. I don’t know. ‘Fairer, greener and more prosperous’ just doesn’t scan very well. Maybe we should come up with something pithier.

    How about ‘Richer, Fairer, Greener.’ Yeah, that’s it. And yet somehow that seems familiar …
