A Better Deal for Islanders


Carol Rybinski Your Island New Democratic representative for District 23 - Tyne Valley - Sherbrooke

Simply put, Dr. Herb Dickieson, who is running for District 25, convinced me to run. My experience as President of the West Prince Chamber of Commerce, and as a board member of the PEI Business Women’s Association, and some great role models in those associations, made me feel I still wanted to contribute, and that I could.

Why the Island New Democratic Party?

I think the NDP platform and policies align well with my personal values and beliefs. When my family and I moved to PEI in 2008, I was so touched by the kindness and community mindedness of the folks here. I think that is what the NDP is all about; raising people up, being inclusive, taking care of each other. Everyone deserves the best possible chance to live a happy and productive life.

Everyone deserves a place at the table.

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.
