Charlottetown-West Royalty Simone Webster

A Better Deal for Islanders


Simone Webster Your Island New Democratic representative for District 14 - Charlottetown-West Royalty

Hi – I am Simone Webster, your NDP candidate in District 14.

I moved to Charlottetown from my native Switzerland in 2001 for what I thought would be a one year stay in Canada as a doctor of veterinary medicine at the AVC. Since then, I have acquired a husband (Campbell Webster), our two children, Louis and Sophie, and Canadian Citizenship. Today, I love the Island as much as I love the Swiss Alps.

It is on the Island that I became active in social justice pursuits, helping to found Canada’s Veterinarians Without Borders, serving on the boards of the Voluntary Resource Council, as well as the CW Foundation, which supports social justice projects in Atlantic Canada and Latin America. Internationally, my husband and I regularly visit Central America, where we work with poverty reduction and human rights groups. Eager to have a better understanding of social inequalities, I recently completed a Master of Arts in Island Studies at UPEI.

I believe that every economic decision we take has to be carefully weighed for its connection to the social and ecologic well-being of our society and the Island.

I ask for your vote in District 14.

Life is getting harder for everyday Islanders. Our health care system is on the brink – hospitals are understaffed and closing, and vital health services are at risk of being sold off to private companies. The cost of living is growing far more rapidly than families’ paycheques, leaving many worried about paying for gas, food and housing.

Things have gotten worse under Conservative and Liberal governments. Underfunding of our health care system has resulted in ER closures, hallway medicine, and unacceptable emergency and long-term care wait times. It’s not good enough for the government to stand by while Islanders are stressed about affording medical prescriptions and dental care.

People are tired of promising one thing during an election and doing the opposite after. It’s time to stop that.

If we want a future, we have to make different choices. Islanders deserve a better deal, and New Democrats are prepared to deliver it. Together, we can make practical changes that make life more affordable for everyone – no matter where you live.

New Democrats will fight for improved health care services and for us, cuts are not on the table. We’ll make sure that government works for all Islanders, making our province a more attractive place to live, work and raise a family.

When it comes to better jobs, protecting the environment and investing in strong public health care and education, New Democrats are fighting for you.
