Northumberland Labour Council Fully Endorses Local NDP Candidate Kim McArthur-Jackson
The Northumberland Labour Council affirms our support of NDP Candidate Kim McArthur-Jackson in the riding of Northumberland – Peterborough South.
“Conservative MPP David Piccini has left working people behind” says Northumberland Labour Council President Dan Tobin. “Behind the photo ops and slogans, David Piccini and the rest of the Conservative Government have implemented wage freezes, put workers in harm’s way, and protected corporations over people.”
We need someone that will stand up and fight for all constituents, not just a select few. Kim is a champion for women, and the LGBTQ2S+ community. Kim has been an activist since her teens, focusing on poverty reduction, economic equality and LGBTQ2S+ rights. As a mother of five, Kim understands how difficult it is for hard-working people to get ahead when Provincial governments keep giving all the breaks to the ultra-rich. We need an MPP that can be depended upon to stand up for healthcare, the environment, good jobs and affordable housing.
Dan Tobin says “the NDP has championed the issues of workers”. If elected, the NDP will introduce a $20 minimum wage, provide easier access to a union, make long-term care public and not-for-profit, bring back rent control, and return the WSIB surplus to injured workers, instead of corporations”.
“After the devastation of the past few years, it is time for an MPP that will work for the people that make this community run”. Says Tobin. “Kim McArthur-Jackson, Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP know what working people need and they will deliver it.”
Therefore, the Northumberland Labour Council fully endorses NDP candidate Kim McArthur-Jackson for MPP of Northumberland – Peterborough South.
