WINDSOR – NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and the NDP’s Windsor-Essex candidates Lisa Gretzky (Windsor West), Gemma Grey-Hall (Windsor—Tecumseh) and Ron LeClair (Essex) have announced their full support of Mayor Drew Dilkens’ Windsor platform, and their commitment to make each of the five listed priorities a reality.
“New Democrats are committed to making life better for Windsor families. We’re grateful to Mayor Dilkens for his advocacy and for putting forward the City’s top priorities,” said Horwath. “An NDP government would work with the City of Windsor, workers and families to deliver on all five of the priorities in the plan. We’re heading to Windsor in the coming days and we can’t wait to meet with the mayor and discuss how an NDP government can make the Windsor platform a reality.”
“Families in Windsor need a government that will invest in the things that matter to them. That’s why we’re excited to commit to the Windsor platform,” said Gretzky. “As MPP for Windsor West for the last eight years, I was proud to have already been advocating for many of these priorities, like the new hospital, affordable housing and the Ojibway National Urban Park. New Democrats want to make Windsor an economic powerhouse by investing in the auto sector and supporting workers and their families.”
“The NDP will invest in Windsor’s health care and make sure the new regional hospital is built as quickly as possible,” said Grey-Hall. “We’re also determined to fix the housing crisis and making sure everyone in Windsor is able to find a home they can afford. Windsor families need a government that listens to their priorities and commits to acting on them, and that’s exactly what the NDP will do.”
“The NDP will invest in giving families in Essex better health care by making sure the new regional hospital gets built quickly and offers the range of services families need. Supporting the Windsor platform means helping the families of Essex access more good jobs and better health care, and making housing more affordable for everyone across the region.” said LeClair.
Platform4Windsor outlines five key local priorities for the City of Windsor, including funding the new regional hospital, lowering the cost of housing, connecting the Lauzon parkway to the 401, supporting economic growth and helping to establish the Ojibway National Park.
