Working towards the future.

That’s from NDP leader Tom Mulcair during a recent stop in the Comox Valley.

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair’s bus arrives at the K’omoks Band Hall

He spoke to a crowd of voters outside the K’omoks Band Hall this Thanksgiving weekend as part of his Island Express Tour. He was accompanied by Courtenay-Alberni NDP candidate Gord Johns and North Island Powell River’s Rachel Blaney.

Mulcair says an NDP government would produce successful long-term investments.

The NDP leader also touched on his party’s plan for affordable $15 dollar-a-day child care.

And much like in the recent Courtenay Alberni all-candidates meeting at the Sid Williams Theatre, the subject of murdered and missing aboriginal women was brought up.

Mulcair says he will chair a committee that makes sure his government’s decisions will respect First Nations throughout the country.

Whether or not Tom Mulcair becomes Canada’s next Prime Minister will be decided in less than a week.

Election day is October 19th, 2015.
