“In this election, we’re asking voters to aspire to more,” said Louise Lanctot, President of the Cornwall and District Labour Council. “This is about upholding values like fairness and equality.”

Canada’s unions are calling on voters to support candidates who will support bold ideas like universal pharmacare and retirement security, and who will prioritize good jobs, a clean environment, and equity and inclusion.

“It’s so easy to give into politics of fear and division, and that’s why we’re seeing so many politicians stoop to that level in their campaigns,” said Lanctot. “We know that people in Canada are better than that, so we’re asking them to demand fairness for everyone in this next federal election.”
