NDP campaign releases TV ads highlighting achievements, Liberal’s risky health policy

September 21, 2013

(Halifax, N.S.) The NDP released two new television ads this weekend highlighting the NDP’s commitment to attracting good jobs for Nova Scotians and underscoring the risk of Liberal leader Stephen McNeil’s centralization of health care.

“It’s not good enough for governments to simply say there’s nothing we can do – you’re on your own,” Darrell Dexter says to a group of young Nova Scotians in an ad focusing on the NDP’s commitment to fighting for good jobs. “It’s our responsibility to invest, to make sure that there is a future for young people in our province.”

The second ad focuses on McNeil’s risky plan to centralize Nova Scotia’s health care – a plan which experts have said will create chaos and confusion and lead to reductions in frontline care.

“Nothing’s more important to Nova Scotia families than health care,” the ad begins. It continues by reminding Nova Scotians of the Liberal record on health care: closing 1,600 hospital beds and driving 1000 nurses out of the profession. It ends with a warning for Nova Scotians on their health care: “Stephen McNeil’s Liberals and health care: not worth the risk.”

The NDP will: deliver better health care where and when people need it, fight for good jobs and stronger communities, keep the HST off home energy and take it off more family essentials, give our kids a better start, stand up for seniors, build the Maritime Link and keep the budget balanced to protect services for families.
