Canadians deserve better

Another key cabinet minister, Jane Philpott, has resigned from Trudeau’s cabinet just days after Jody Wilson-Raybould spoke truth to power about the SNC Lavalin scandal  – and Trudeau’s Liberal government is scrambling.

Philpott was a well-respected minister. She was particularly well-respected for her work with Indigenous peoples across Canada.

The resignations highlight just how deep-rooted the SNC Lavalin scandal is.

People across the country are shocked by how far Justin Trudeau has been willing to go to protect his wealthy friends at SNC-Lavalin.

Canadians deserve better. We deserve people in power who will actually fight for us.

While Trudeau’s Liberal government is busy making excuses, our NDP team has been putting people first. We choose investments for people over tax breaks and favours for corporations .

Our NDP team doesn't have ultra-rich insiders and billionaire friends to answer to. And that means we can fight for Canadians – and stand up to companies like SNC-Lavalin.

We need principled leaders who will stand up in the House of Commons and fight for Canadians every day.

Now, more than ever, we need to keep fighting for people.
