Gail Kinch Your Island New Democratic representative for District 27 - Tignish - Palmer Road
Hello, my name is Gail kinch. I am 38 years old, and I have lived in district 27 most of my life. I am a mother of two girls. I have put my name forward to run for NDP in this district because I believe islanders deserve more than what they have received in the past.
I have worked as a flagger with a road construction company for 10 years, I have also worked for the public school’s branch as a sub-custodian. for the pat 12 years I have been working for a potato farmer driving tractor, 10-wheeler, and I also work as a Resident Care Worker in Western P.E.I.
I am very passionate and concerned for West Prince. Our health care is in shambles, we cannot keep doctors here and the government’s idea is to bring in virtue doctors , our health care staff are overworked and underpaid, the burn out rate is at an all-time high and many RCW’s,RN’s, and LPN’s are leaving . The incentives that were sent to Nurse managers, RN’s, LPN’s, and RCW’s was a slap in the face to the rest of the health care staff. The service workers, maintenance workers, ward clerks, medical secretaries, ETC should be treated all equal. Our Schools and businesses are always looking for staff which they seem they cannot find.
The significant changes over the past few years are very troubling and I want to be a part of that change for district 27.
Lets be that change

Fighting for you
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.
