NDP Leader shows confidence in an NDP victory for Brampton East
October 13, 2015 (BRAMPTON) – Today, NDP leader Tom Mulcair was greeted by an energetic crowd of over 500 NDP supporters at Harbaljit Singh Kahlon’s campaign office in the NDP stronghold of Brampton East.
“Today’s crowd is an example of the energy people have for the NDP throughout this riding,” said Kahlon, the NDP candidate for Brampton East, “it’s a testament to the hard work put in by our volunteers and supporters and is a clear sign that this riding believes that only NDP represents change.”
Tom Mulcair said the NDP only needs 35 seats to defeat Harper, adding that electing Harbaljit in Brampton East will be one of them.
When addressing the crowd, Mulcair highlighted the NDP was the only party with the courage to stand up against the Liberals and Conservatives on Bill C51. He reminded the crowd that Bill C51 was passed when the Liberals teamed up with Conservatives to strip Canadians of their civil liberties.
Mulcair outlined the NDP’s plan to help middle-class families get ahead with affordable childcare, support for small businesses, the expansion of Canada’s health care system, and more opportunities for young people.
“The Liberals have failed to beat the Conservatives three consecutive times in Brampton East,” said Kahlon. “The NDP will get the job done!”
Kahlon is a favourite within the community and a star candidate for the NDP. The residents of Brampton East will benefit from an NDP win. Kahlon will be a strong voice that will place an emphasis on issues that directly impact the people that live in the rising.
The riding is currently held by Jagmeet Singh, MPP and Ontario NDP’s Deputy Leader.
