Today, NDP candidate Joe Krmpotich is responding to desperate attacks by Conservative Ross Romano.
“I think Mr. Romano is attempting to mislead voters about the solid plans the NDP has put forward,” said Krmpotich.
“A vote for the NDP is a vote for 30 per cent off your hydro bills, and undoing the privatization of Hydro One. A vote for the NDP is a vote for Ontario’s first universal Pharmacare program, so people will stop having to rack up their credit card bills to get the medicine they need. A vote for the NDP is a vote for a $15 minimum wage.
“And a vote for me is a vote for someone who will fight for us – for all Sault families – at the legislature. It’s a vote for someone whose top priority is good jobs for our children, so they can stay here, build their careers here and raise their families, right here in the Sault.”
Krmpotich said he’s not surprised by the attacks, since Romano and the Conservatives haven’t had anything positive to say about their own plans.
“Mr. Romano and the Conservatives, they won’t tell us what they’d do if elected. They don’t seem to stand for anything at all,” said Krmpotich. “They opposed having a Pharmacare plan. They attacked the idea of 30 per cent lower hydro bills.?
“All we know about their agenda is that they’re cut-and-privatize Conservatives – and I don’t think further cutting and privatization is what our community needs.”
