Cornwall - Jun. 26, 2011 - New Democrat Leader Andrea Horwath unveiled her plan for affordable change at the kick-off of the 2011 election campaign.

"Ontario needs change that puts people first," said Horwath. "This is a plan to help people who have been feeling ignored by this government. We will make life more affordable, cut emergency room wait times, and create jobs."

Running in her first election as leader, Horwath told a rally of members, candidates and volunteers that she's ready to lead the province.

"This is going to be an exciting election. People have been telling me that it's time to do things differently in Ontario and that's exactly what I intend to do," said the NDP leader.

The Plan for Affordable Change is the first New Democrat policy plans, laying out priorities for healthcare, making life affordable and jobs. The plan includes:

  • Change that makes life more affordable - by taking the HST off daily essentials including hydro, home heating and gasoline and shifting the tax burden back to corporations that have already seen big breaks.

  • Change that creates jobs - by replacing corporate tax giveaways with tax measures that reward job creators and small business, and making sure public dollars and natural resources are spent in Ontario to create jobs.

  • Change that meets our healthcare challenges - by cutting wait times in emergency rooms by half, and eliminating waits for long-term care and home care.

    "New Democrats are giving families a clear choice for the future. Real, sensible ideas to make everyday life more affordable for Ontario families," said Horwath.
