NEWFOUNDLANDERS AND LABRADORIANS ARE FACING A STARK CHOICE:
ONWARD OR BACKWARD?
In 2015, your Liberal Government made tough but necessary choices as we managed theprovince through an economic crisis. The necessity for difficult decisions was hidden bythe prior Progressive Conservative Government. In our persistence for a stronger tomorrow came a resilience to see the plan through. This document sets out the product of that enduring commitment.
Today, your Liberal Government is offering a continued path to prosperity for Newfoundland and Labrador. Behind us are the prospects of doubling electricity rates due to the PC MuskratFalls project, $2.7 billion deficits, and PC mismanagement.
We cannot go back.
Ches Crosbie and the PCs promise to gut health care and implement a “debt brake law”; a harsh instrument that will arbitrarily cut hundreds of millions from our social programs,significantly reduce jobs, and do irreparable damage to our economy. He promises to scrapThe Way Forward, which is an engine of job creation and partnerships in the burgeoning aquaculture, mining, oil and gas, tourism, forestry, and technology industries. We cannot go back.
Moving Onward with the Liberal path grows the economy while ensuring fiscal stability in abalanced and thoughtful manner under the following central themes:
- A Better Economy
- Healthier People
- Better Living
- A Bright Future
