What New Democrats are fighting for
Healthcare is an urgent concern for Islanders, both in Cornwall-Meadowbank and across PEI. The last 18 months has demonstrated this more than ever. At the beginning of the pandemic, we underestimated the toll this virus would have on our ability to meet other medical needs.
A New Democratic Party would make sure these important issues are addressed.
The need for rent that is geared to income is very great on PEI. The numbers of those in the PEI Housing waiting list is only a percentage of the need. We need a bold vision to permanently relieve the difficulty affording rent felt by so many Islanders.
Why pubic housing rather than private market housing?
The policy of using taxpayer’s money to provide private developers with grants and loans to create rental housing doesn’t provide a solution which will take care of future generations. At the end of the contract (12, 15 or 20 years) the community is left with nothing while the developer has a valuable asset which it can convert to whatever it wants – luxury apartments, hotel, Airbnb etc. It’s not a policy with any long-term vision or any concern for future generations.
It is the role of government to create policies and programs to ensure that every person living in Prince Edward Island has a livable income without having to rely on charity to meet their basic needs. The NDP-PEI believes that it is possible to eliminate poverty by redistributing wealth on the basis of a fair tax system, and by investing in public services.
When we speak of affordable housing, accessible transportation needs to be part of the plan.
The NDP-PEI believes that the only way to provide an efficient, affordable and comprehensive Island-wide public transit system is through public investment and ownership.
