Labour Council supports NDP

Friday, May 30, 2014   by: Staff



Sault Ste. Marie and District Labour Council passed a motion at their monthly meeting to encourage our members to support the New Democratic Party candidates, Celia Ross of Sault Ste. Marie and Mike Mantha of the Algoma-Manitoulin District in the upcoming provincial elections.  

We encourage all members to ensure their voice is heard by voting on June 12.

Ya of course they do lol.. what a joke.. NDP has done nothing for this city or province. The only thing thay have done is support corrupt Unions
IgnorantNortherner 5/30/2014 2:54:26 PM Report

koolaid drinker, and what is it the PCs and Liberals have done for us besides create debts that can never be paid off and normalizing corruption?

*I'm not an NDP supporter*

Duhhhhhhhhhh... who would have figgered ?? Hopefully those that worked to get Mike Mantha elected last time realize that he has been MIA since last election. The Algoma riding has not benefitted whatever from his presence. Yes we know he is not of the "governing party" but at least he could and should reply back or acknowledge telephone messages or letters requesting information or assistance.

If given half a chance the NDP would run circles around the Liberal and Conservetive Parties.

The Liberals and Conservetives have had numerous occassions to "make a dfference," and they have failed.

It is time the NDP is given a chance to prove they have the right ideas to make a huge difference for our provence.

So many people are set in their ways that they aren't able to see the way out of the mess we are in, thanks to the Liberals and Conservetives hard headed ideas.

We are in need of a HUGE CHANGE. We are so tired of the backroom deals and squandering of our our tax dollars.
Change is inevitable and the chance is now.

Please vote NDP in the next election and help to get us out of this quagmire.

I'm voting PC but at least Horwath has her head on straight, she seems to be a well balanced leader. Good luck!

No! I'm shocked!
I'll vote for anybody who can keep the Cons OUT!

Several years ago, Tony Martin and the Labour Council cost me and several other unionized workers our jobs. As I told Tony at the time, I expected to get screwed by the P.C. party but not the NDP. Celia Ross may be a candidate for sainthood and Andrea Horwath may be able to leap tall buildings with a single bound,but they are NDP and I will not vote for them

This is simply an act of blind faith. What has Celia Ross done for this community prior to this, .... nothing. I have voted NDP for 40 years, but my vote goes to Orazietti this time, ... at least the Soo gets things when he is there. Ross is just using this for her own gain. She is no Tony Martin.
