Platform: Fund an environmental Investment Fund to support recycling, hot-spot cleanup and infrastructure upgrades Put in harsh penalties for polluters Restore federal cash transfers for Health Care funding to 25% of the total health care spending Provide additional funding for provinces building not-for-profit community and home care systems Ban public health dollars from funding private hospitals Support farmers with transportation, with animal health inspection and with protection against monopolies and predatory pricing Support rural communities, co-operatives, credit unions and community development projects Acknowledge First Nations inherent right to self-government and work to resolve land rights and fishing issues quickly Support educational opportunities for young people and community research and development enterprises

Why vote for me? We know that the environment is a number one priority. It is time for strict environmental control and careful enforcement. It is time for specific targets for air pollution reduction and the funding to meet those targets. It is time to provide funding to encourage the three R's-reduce, reuse, recycle--in all communities. I will work to put the environment front and centre in federal policiesOver the past few years our health care system has been put under the knife. In Ontario and Alberta, a two-tiered system is being created. Canadians do not want this to happen. We have all felt the effects of healthcare cutbacks. It is time to restore federal funding. It is time to expand health care to cover prescription drugs and home care. It is time to fight the Liberal cuts and the American model that Alberta and Ontario are pushing
