Sault Ste. Marie NDP candidate Marie Morin-Strom invites you to join her at 50 East Street (Downtown Library) this Friday, September 10, at 5:00 pm to Rally for our #Future.
Special guests will include Michael Mantha, MPP for Algoma-Manitoulin, Michele McCleave-Kennedy, NDP provincial candidate for Sault Ste. Marie, and Rebekah Gwynn, a student activist at Algoma University.
“It’s time for a government that delivers real results for everyday people,” says Morin-Strom. “The past 18 months have been beyond challenging for too many Canadian families, but the more I talk with Sault Ste. Marie residents, the more I realize that many were already worried about the future long before the onset of COVID-19.”
Morin-Strom points out that, for young people especially, it’s become harder to keep up as wages remain low and good jobs with benefits become harder to find.
“It’s harder to find a home, as rents continue to increase and housing prices skyrocket out of reach for most people,” says Morin-Strom. “It’s harder to get the health care people need, with many stuck paying high out of pocket health care costs. And it’s harder to have hope for the future as the dangers of the climate crisis become more and more apparent, threatening everything we hold dear.”
“I’m participating in the rally because I know my community is full of young students whose futures depend on this election,” says Rebekah Gwynn. “How we vote will determine our fate with regard to the climate crisis. It will determine whether we’re ever able to pay off our student loans, and whether our younger siblings and our children will be able to afford post-secondary education at all.”
For the NDP, the status quo just isn’t good enough. Marie Morin Strom and the New Democratic Party are committed to fighting for a better future.
“If we want different results,” says Morin-Strom, “we need to make different choices”
This election is an opportunity to build a better future for everyone. Join us this Friday to fight for:
- A future with health care that puts you first.
- A future with good jobs and help when you need it.
- A future where your life is more affordable and the wealthiest pay their fair share.
- A future where our communities can confront the climate crisis and win.
- A future where we take on longstanding inequalities that are hurting our country and end them.
