The NDP’s first budget comes out on top of last month’s poll
The NDP says it’s the first time it’s won a majority government since the Liberals were in power.
The party’s election platform says it wants to reverse the Conservatives’ policies and get back to the basics, like jobs, education and infrastructure.
The NDP said its election platform will deliver on its promise to build a new economy and grow the middle class.
But a new Nanos Research poll released Monday found that while the NDP’s mandate has grown, support for the party has also been falling in the province.
The Nanos poll surveyed 1,006 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
The poll found that 47 per cent of Canadians support the NDP, while just 31 per cent back the Liberals.
That’s a two-point gap.NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is seen during a news conference on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
The poll found 47 per and 31 per, respectively, of Canadians back the NDP.
The party says it has an NDP mandate, but has been getting less support in recent months.
The Liberals had a three-point lead at the end of September, but the Liberals have since tightened the gap.
The Conservatives held on to power with a comfortable majority in 2019.
The survey found that Canadians are more likely to support the Conservatives now than at any time in the past 20 years.
They’re also more likely than ever to say they would vote Conservative again in the 2018 election.
The Liberal Party’s platform, however, doesn’t include the party’s promise to make good on the promise to reverse Stephen Harper’s policies and make Canada a more prosperous country.
The platform promises to create jobs, reduce the deficit and cut taxes.
It also says the party will increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022.
The budget is a continuation of the Liberal platform, and promises to build on those initiatives.
The Conservative Party has promised to spend $15,000 per household to help seniors buy their own home, and increase the maximum tax rate for business income to 15 per cent.
The New Democrats’ platform includes the promise of increased support for health care, including increased funding for prescription drug coverage, as well as investments in mental health, the environment and Indigenous issues.
The parties have a combined $1.8-billion difference in spending on election campaigns and their election platforms.
