With Weeks till Election Day in Ontario, Liberals release platform



With time ticking down, and the Ontario Provincial parties getting ready to hit full campaign mode in a few weeks the Ontario Liberals kicked off their official election campaign with their new look, new leader and part of their new 2022 platform.


Ontario Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca announced his party's "Ontario Liberal Plan for Economic Dignity" which outlines economic platform commitment ahead of the election.


"My parents taught me the value of hard work and the right to a fair wage. In a province as wealthy and healthy as ours, no full-time worker should struggle to make ends meet," the Ontario Liberal Leader said at the announcement.


Under the plan, Ontario would provide 10 paid sick days for all Ontario workers, build to a four day work week, ban underpaid gig and contract work and provide all Ontario workers with portable drug, dental, and mental health services.


The plan also outlines a path for minimum wage with a regional living wage starting at $16 for Ontarians.


"The Ontario Liberal Plan for Economic Dignity will provide immediate recovery for workers

today, and secure new, long-term portable benefits that let all workers save for a good retirement," Del Duca added.


Also during the event, Steven Del Duca officially displayed the new Liberal Logo, which was leaked earlier this year.


Ontario will head to the polls in June, The Cross Border Interviews will be heading to Ontario to cover the election throughout the election period.
