Jagmeet Singh lays out NDP’s priorities for new Parliament


CRISIS. WE KNOW CANADIANS EXPECT US TO CONTINUE TO HELP YOUNG PEOPLE, STUDENTS LIVING WITH MASSIVE DEBT AND OUR PLANS TO TACKLE THAT ARE SOMETHING WE WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR. WE KNOW, WE WANT TO SIGNAL CLEARLY, TO THIS GOVERNMENT, OUR PRIORITY AND SO WE WILL PUT WARD TWO THINGS RIGHT NOW. CHALLENGING THE GOVERNMENT ON TWO THINGS. THE FIRST CHALLENGE IS, WE ARE GOING TO PUT FORWARD OUR FIRST BILL, WHICH WILL BE A FRAMEWORK TO PUT IN PLACE UNIVERSAL PUBLICALLY DELIVERED SINGLE PAYER PHARMACARE FOR ALL. THAT IS GOING TO BE THE FIRST LEGISLATION.>>HEAR, HEAR. [ Applause ] OUR SECOND CHALLENGE IN THE SPIRIT OF TRUE RECONCILIATION, ARE SECOND CHALLENGE IS TO THE GOVERNMENT TO IMMEDIATELY DROP THE APPEAL OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNAL FUNDING — DECISION OF THE INDIGENOUS. Mr. TRUDEAU MADE IT SOUND THIS IS SOMETHING HE HAD TO DO BECAUSE IT WAS DURING THE MIDST OF A CAMPAIGN BUT MORE AND MORE IT IS COMING TO LIGHT IT WAS THEIR INTENTION ALL ALONG TO APPEAL THIS DECISION AND THAT IS THE WRONG THING TO DO. ACTIVISTS HAVE BEEN WORKING LONG AND HARD, DEMANDING A BASIC ELEMENT OF RESPECT AND DIGNITY THAT INDIGENOUS SHOULD GET EQUAL FUNDING. WE WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR THAT.>>(Voice of Translator): OUR PRIORITIES REMAIN THE SAME BEN WILL CONTINUE TO STAND UP FOR PEOPLE. WE TALK ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF HEALTH CARE, OF MAKING LIFE MORE AFFORDABLE FOR PEOPLE, DEALING WITH CLIMATE CHANGE. RECONCILIATION, HELPING STUDENTS OUT WITH THEIR STUDENT DEBT AS WELL. WE WILL BE PUTTING FORWARD TWO CHALLENGES TO THE GOVERNMENT. FIRST OF ALL, AND THIS IS OUR — WILL BE OUR FIRST BILL, THERE WILL BE A FRAMEWORK OF BILL, FOR THE CREATION OF UNIVERSAL SINGLE PAYER PHARMACARE. [ Applause ] THE SECOND CHALLENGE TO THE GOVERNMENT WILL CHALLENGE THE GOVERNMENT TO DROP RIGHT NOW, THEIR CHALLENGE TO THE INDIGENOUS DECISION TO PROVIDE JUSTICE TO ABORIGINAL KIDS. STOP THIS RIGHT NOW. [ Applause ] [End of Translation] I WILL BE OPEN FOR QUESTIONS.>>Reporter: YOU’RE STANDING HERE TODAY WITH THE NEW FACES. ONE SOLE QUEBEC M.P. AND ONE FORMER COLLEAGUE THAT IS NOT HERE TODAY. WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THOSE OUTGOING M.P.s LOST IN QUEBEC AND DO YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LOSS THEREIN A LU ARE YOU GOING WORK WON ADDRESSING YOUR PARTY.>>WHILE I’M PROUD OF THE CAM PAN WE RAN AND OUR POSITIVE MESSAGE AND HOPEFUL MESSAGE FOR CANADIANS, ASKING THEM NOT TO SETTLE FOR LESS BUT TO DREAM BIGGER, I’M PROUD OF THE WORK WE PUT IN AND MY INCREDIBLE TEAM. I’M SATISFIED WITH THE RESULT. WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO WORK HARD THAT IF YOU WANT A PROGRESSIVE VOICE, IT IS UP, NEW DEMOCRATS WILL DO THAT. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK REALLY HARD. IN ALL ELECTION, THERE IS AN EXCITING ELEMENT WHERE YOU BRING IN NEW MEMBERS AND I’M HONOURED TO HAVE A NUMBER OF INCREDIBLE NEW M.P.s. ALSO A CHALLENGING AND DIFFICULT PART OF ELECTIONS WHEN YOU LOSE GREAT COLLEAGUES AND WE LOST GREAT COLLEAGUES AS WELL. I WILL GIVE ONE FOLLOW-UP. YOU WILL BE MEETING TONIGHT WITH SOME OF THE OUT GOING M.P.s. WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THEM? HOW MIGHT YOU DRAW ON THEIR EXPERIENCE AS YOU LOOK FORWARD?>>WELL, WILL LISTEN. I WILL LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. IT IS IMPORTANT TO HEAR THEM OUT. THEY ARE PROUD OF THE CAMPAIGN THEY RUN BUT THERE IS MORE WORK TO BE DONE AND IN QUEBEC, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR. I BELIEVE IN THE DREAM OF JACK LAYTON TO BRING TOGETHER PROGRESSIVE QUEBEC WITH THE REST OF CANADA. I WILL CONTINUE TO DO THAT. >>Reporter: [Speaking French]>>(Voice of Translator): HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE YOU TO REALIZE THAT DREAM? HOW ARE YOU GOING REBUILD ON THE GROUND IN QUEBEC?>>WELL, TODAY WE WILL BE MEETING WITH OUT GOING DEFEATED M.P.s. WE WILL BE TALKING TO THEM ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN. NOW WE KNOW THAT THERE IS WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. WE KNOW THAT WE ALSO HAVE A STRONG BASE IN QUEBEC. WE HAVE TO BUILD ON THIS. MY COMMITMENT AND THE COMMITMENT OF MY WHOLE TEAM, IS TO WORK HARD IN QUEBEC. WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP. WE KNOW THAT JACK LAYTON’S DREAM TO BRING TOGETHER QUEBEC PROFESSORS — PROGRESSIVE AND OTHER PROGREFSS, GRESIVES. — PROGRESSIVES. THAT IS WHERE I WANT TO PICK UP. I’M SORRY.>>Reporter: [Speaking French]>>(Voice of Translator): WHAT PRESSURE IS ON HIM? WHAT ARE YOU ASKING HIM TO DO?>>WELL, TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, HE’S WORKED INCREDIBLY HARD AND I’M VERY PROUD OF THE WORK HE’S DONE AND THE WORK HIS TEAM HAS DONE AS WELL. [ Applause ] WHAT WE WANT TO DO AND WHAT WE WILL DO, ISN’T JUST IN THE HANDS OF OUR QUEBEC LIEUTENANT AND THE DEPUTY LEADER ALEXANDER. IT’S NOT A ONE MAN BAND HERE. WE’RE A TEAM. OUR TEAM HAS PROMISED TO BE — WE ARE HIGH PROFILE IN QUEBEC. I’M VERY MUSED BY THAT. MOVED BY THE FACT THAT THAT M.P.s FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY WANT TO BE HIGH PROFILE IN QUEBEC, THAT SHOW QUEBECERS WE ARE HER FOR THEM.>>YOUR SUPPORT, DOES — WHAT KIND OF LEF RANL DO YOU HAVE?>>IT HAS NOT REACHED OUT. BUT IF Mr. TRUDEAU WANTS TO DELIVER ON WHAT CANADIAN WANT, AND IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT CANADIANS WANT A UNIVERSAL PHARMACARE PROGRAM. THERE IS MASSIVE SUPPORT FOR THAT. PUBLIC POLLING NATIONALLY THAT SHOWS A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF SUPPORT FOR THAT. THEY WANT TO DELIVER ON THAT, THEY WILL NEED OUR HELP TO DO IT. THEY WANT TO DEN DELIVER ON DENTAL CARE PROGRAM. WE HEARD THE STORIES, PEOPLE THAT WALKED UP TO ONE OF OUR CANDIDATE, IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND SAID, I — LOOK AT MY TEETH. I CAN’T GET THE CARE FOR MY TEETH. I’M EMBARRASSED TO GO TO WORK. I’M EMBARRASSED TO APPLY FAR JOB. THAT SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING IN A COUNTRY AS RICH AS OURS. IF THEY WANT TO DELIVER THOSE TYPES OF SERVICES THEY WILL NEED YOUR HELP. IF THEY WANT TO DELIVER REAL ACTION AND MAKE SURE WE FORCE THEM TO DELIVER REAL ACTION ON THE CLIMATE CRISIS, THEY WILL NEED OUR HELP, TO REDUCE EMISSIONS, WE WILL HOLD THEM TO ACCOUNT. WE WILL DEMAND REAL ACTION THAT IS GOING TO BENEFIT CANADIAN AND REAL ACTION THAT IS GOING TACKLE THE THE PROBLEMS WE ARE FACED WITH. [Speaking French]>>(Voice of Translator): I WILL START OVER HERE. I DIDN’T HEAR YOUR QUESTION. I’M SORRY. >>Reporter: NAUBL NAUBL >>I THINK THE FIGHT FOR JUSTICE IS VERY IMPORTANT AND THE TEAM HAS WORKED HARD DURING THE CAMPAIGN. WE HAVE TO CELEBRATE OUR RESULTS. I THINK IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE FUN. I WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR. THAT IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO ADMIT THAT I’M SAD. IT’S A GREAT SHAME WE LOST M.P.s ACROSS THE COUNTRY, ACROSS SASKATCHEWAN AS WELL. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK HARD. IT IS IMPORTANT TO WIN THE SEATS BACK BUT IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE N.D.P. REPRESENTATION IN THOSE RIDINGS. [Inaudible Question by the Media] [Inaudible Question by the>>SO IF THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T DO WHAT YOU ARE ASKING THEM TO DO, BE YOU DRAW A RED LINE AND SAY I’M BRINGING YOU DOWN?>>WELL, OUR PRIORITIES REMAIN THE SAME. TO FIGHT FOR THE PRIORITIES, ENVIRONMENT, EDUCATIONEN STUDENT DEBT, ECT. WHAT WE ARE SEEING NOW, IS THAT WE’RE PUTTING FORWARD OUR PRIORITIES. WE WANT TO MOVE FORWARD ON THE PRIORITIES. AND WE EXPECT THE GOVERNMENT TO ACT ON THOSE PRIORITIES. NOW THERE ARE TWO CHALLENGES TO THE GOVERNMENT, FIRST OF ALL, TO DROP THE COURT CHALLENGE, AND THE SECOND CHALLENGE TO THE GOVERNMENT, IS TO IMPLEMENT UNIVERSAL FARM ACARE. >>THE QUESTION IS, DOES THE GOVERNMENT FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR DEMANDS, WHAT WILL YOU DO?>>WELL, THAT IS NOT THE QUESTION. WHAT I’M SAYING TODAY IS THAT WE INTEND TO TABLE A FIRST PIECE OF LEGISLATION. WE ARE CHALLENGING THE GOVERNMENT DROP THEIR COURT CHALLENGE. THIS IS WHAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO DO IF IT REALLY WANTS TO BRING ABOUT RECONCILIATION. SO THE GOVERNMENT CAN DO THE FIRST THING, IN MOVING TOWARDS THAT SITUATION, THE FIRST THING IS TO DROP THE COURT CHALLENGE. WE WILL BE NEGOTIATING IN PRIVATE AND I WON’T DO IT IN PUBLIC. I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU WHAT I INTEND TO DON A THESE ARE THE FIRST TWO THINGS WE INTEND TO DO. >>WILL THE N.D.P. EVEN BE IN A POSITION TO WORK OTHER PARTY AND TOPPLE THE GOVERNMENT RIGHT AWAY WAY AFTER THE THRONE SPEECH? ABLE TO SUSTAIN A CAMPAIGN?>>WE ARE IN A GOOD FINANCIAL POSITION. WE HAD GREAT RESULTS. RECORD FUND-RAISING, MINUS 2015 BUT GREAT RESULTS. WHAT WE WILL DO IN THIS CAMPAIN IS TO FIGHT HARD FOR THE PRIORITIES WE PUT OUT AND LET CANADIAN KNOW THEY CAN COUNT ON US TO FIGHT FOR THEM. I’M NOT GOING TO DEAL WITH HYPOTHETICALS UNTIL WE SEE THE THRONE SPEECH BUT I’M READY TO LED CANADIANS KNOW WHERE WE STAND. PUT OUT THE FIRST PROJECT RTHE FIRST BILL, PRIVATE MEMBERS BILL WILL BE ON HOW WE MOVE FORWARD WITH UNIVERSAL PHARMACARE AND OUR SECOND CHALLENGE TO GOVERNMENT IS THIS, DROP THE APPEAL. IF YOU ARE SERIOUS AND RECONCILIATION, DROP THE APPEAL. ONE FOLLOW-UP. ONE FOLLOW-UP AND I WILL GO THERE.>>SGH WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE IF THE — >>Reporter: WHAT HAPPENEDS WHEN THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T.>>OUR FIR STEP IS TO PUT OUT OUR CHALLENGE AND BUILD PUBLIC PRESSURE ON THIS. LET CANADIANS KNOW THIS IS HAPPENING. A LOT OF CANADIANS WANTED TO SEE THIS GOVERNMENT WORK WITH OTHER PARTIES. THEY NEED TO WORK WITH OTHER PARTIES. WE ARE PUTTING OUT CLEAR CONDITIONS AND CLEAR AREAS THAT WE THINK NEED TO BE ADVANCED. WE ARE PUTTING THEM OUT RIGHT NOW. >>Reporter: [Speaking French]>>(Voice of Translator): WHAT WOULD IT TAKE FOR YOU TO TOPPLE THIS GOVERNMENT?>>WELL, WHAT WE WILL BE DOING IS LOOKING AT EVERY PIECE OF LEGISLATION, EVERYTHING THE GOVERNMENT DOES. WE HAVEN’T MADE A DECISION ON THAT. BUT WHAT I PROPOSE TODAY, IS THE TWO-STEP PROCESS TO MOVE OUR PRIORITIES FORWARD. THAT IS WHAT I’M PUTTING OUT TODAY. >>YOU ARE AGAINST TRANS MOUNTAIN.>>THAT’S RIGHT. I AM AGAINST IT. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AGAINST THE IT, WILL CONTINUE TO BE AGAINST IT. [End of Translation] I WON’T NEGOTIATE LINES IN THE SAND IN THE PUBLIC BUT I CAN TELL YOU I HAVE BEEN FIRMLY OPPOSED TO TRANS MOUNTAIN. WILL CONTINUE TO BE OPPOSED TO IT. >>Reporter: YOU DIDN’T REACH OUT?>>WE SPOKE ONCE AFTER THE ELECTION. I CONGRATULATED HIM ON THE WIN AND HE CONGRATULATED ME AND AFTER THAT WE HAVE NOT SPOKEN. WE ARE OPEN TO CONVERSATIONS. WE ARE PUTTING OUT OUR PRIORITIES >>Reporter: [TALKING SIMULTANEOUSLY ]>>Reporter: WHAT DO YOU THINK WENT WRONG WITH THE COUNTING OF THE VOTE THERE IS. >>WE KNOW THERE WAS A BIG DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF THE FINAL FINDING AT THE END OF THE NIGHT AND AFTER SOME SPECIAL BALLOTS WERE OPENED AND IT WAS A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE AND SO I THINK THERE IS ENOUGH TO HAVE A JEWDICIAL REVIEW. IF YOU NEED MORE DETAILS MY TEAM CAN FOLLOW ONE MORE DETAILS. >> THE RESULT MIGHT BE OVER TURNED? >>I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE RESULT WILL BE. IT IS ENOUGH TO HAVE A JUDICIAL REVIEW AND THAT IS WHY WE LAUNCHED IT. [Inaudible Question by the Media]>>I THINK CANADIANS STILL WANT TO KNOW. I DON’T THINK IT IS AN ISSUE THAT IS FINISHED. THERE IS A LOT OF OPPORTUNITY, PERHAPS IN COMMITTEE FOR THESHIPS TO BE ADDRESSED AND I THINK CANADIANS OUGHTA KNOW THE TRUTH OF WHAT HAPPENED. >>YES, YES, YES. WE WILL TAKE A QUESTION HERE. GO AHEAD. YEAH.>>Reporter: Mr. TRUDEAU HAS BEEN LESS CLEAR THAT HE WOULD NEGOTIATE WITH PROVINCES.>>IT IS SINGLE TIER SYSTEM IS THE WAY TO GO. WHAT Mr. TRUDEAU IS PROPOSING RIGHT NOW IS NOT UNIVERSAL PUBLICALLY DELIVERED PHARMACARE. HIS OWN COMMITTEE THAT HE STRUCK HEADED BY Mr. DOCTOR HOSKINS ENDORSED OUR POSITION. I WANT HAS GOT TO BE UNIVERSAL, SINGLE PAYER AND PUBLICALLY DELIVERED. THAT IS WHAT WE BELIEVE IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. THAT IS WHAT ALL THE EXPERTS BELIEVE IS THE RIGHT THING TO DOP IT WILL MAKE SURE PEOPLE CAN GET ACCESS TO MEDICATION THEY NEED. THIS IS THE LOGICAL STEP FORWARD. WE NEED TO DO IT. WE ARE THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT HAS A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, THAT DOESN’T INCLUDE MEDICATION COVERAGE. WE HAVE GOT TO GO FORWARD WITH THIS? >>Reporter: [Speaking French]>>(Voice of Translator): WHY DID YOU LOSE SO MANY SEATS IN QUEBEC IN YOUR OPINION?>>WELL, WE HAVEN’T YET DONE OUR POSTMORTEM OF WHAT HAPPENED EXACTLY IN QUEBEC. WE WILL BE DOING THAT POSTMORTEM IN THE FUTURE. WE ARE WORKING HARD IN QUEBEC BECAUSE QUEBEC IS VITAL FOR US. WE WILL DO A POSTMORTEM AND FIND SOLUTION AND CONTINUE OUR HARD WORK. >>Reporter: DO YOU THINK YOU LOST BECAUSE OF YOUR POSITION ON BILL 21?>>NO I DON’T THINK SO. WHAT I SAW IN QUEBEC WAS THAT I WAS WARMLY WELCOMED. I THINK WE WERE ABLE TO TURN PEOPLE’S OPINIONS AROUND. BECAUSE WE TALKED ABOUT VALUES. MANY PEOPLE WERE VERY RECEPTIVE TO THAT. PEOPLE REALIZED THAT I SHARE QUEBEC VALUES. NOW I AM $ARE CHALLENGES, OF COURSE, THERE ARE. AND WE WILL HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO BUT IT WAS CLEAR DURING THE CAMPAIGN, WE WERE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE I AM SOMEONE WHO ADVOCATES FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS, FREEDOM OF CHOICE, THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY, SOMEONE ALSO THAT WANTS TO PUT FORWARD CONCRETE ACTION TO DEAL WITH CLIMATE CHANGE. SO I THINK WE HAVE SHOWN THAT I SHARE QUEBEC VALUES AND WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD ON THAT. >>I UNDERSTAND YOU WILL DO AN IN-DEPTH POSTMORTEM. WHY DIDN’T THINGS WORK ON THE GROUND?>>WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO OUR WORK. WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO OUR POSTMORTEM. >>I MEAN I’M PROUD OF THE FACT WHERE WE STARTED AND ENDED UP, WAS INCREDIBLE. AND THERE IS THINGS WE NEED TO DOP THERE WAS A LOT OF FEAR BASED VOTING IN ONTARIO. THAT FEAR BASED VOTING WAS DIFFICULT FOR US. WHERE Mr. TRUDEAU PROMISED THIS WILL BE THE LAST ELECTION UNDER THE FIRST PAST THE POST SYSTEM AND BECAUSE HE DIDN’T CHANGE THE, USE IDEA THE FEAR OF THE FIRST PAST THE POST SYSTEM TO GET PEOPLE TO VOTE A CERTAIN WAY. THAT WORKED IN ONTARIO. PREEM AFRAID OF KERTS BUT I WANT — CONSERVATIVES BUT I WANT PEOPLE TO VOTE NOT OUT OF FEAR. VOTE FOR SOMETHING AND THAT IS THE MESSAGE WE WILL HAVE TO WORK HARD TO MAKE SURE CANADIANS KNOW THEY DON’T HAVE TO SETTLE FOR LESS. THEY DON’T HAVE TO BUY INTO THE FEAR-BASED VOTING THAT THE LIBERALS WANT TO PROMOTE. THAT CANADIANS DESERVE BETTER AND I WILL DELIVER BETTER. [ Applause ] [Inaudible Question by the Media]>>I WILL COME AT IT WITH AN AWESOME RESULT I’M HOPING. WE ARE GOING FIGURE OUT THE DETAILS OF THAT. I CAN GET BACK TO YOU AND LET YOU KNOW. LET ME FINISH THE QUESTION. I’M CONFIDENT THAT NEW DEMOCRATS SAW THE CAMPAIGN AND WE WERE INSPIRED. A CAMPAIGN FULL OF HOPE, POSITIVITY AND REAL CONCRETE SOLUTIONS FOR CANADIANS PROBLEM BEN MADE PEOPLE AT THE HEART OF WHAT WE DID. WHAT I’M HEARING IS THAT FOLKS ARE PROUD OF THE CAMPAIGN AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK HARD. I GOT TO INTRODUCE MYSELF TO CANADIANEN ATHINK THEY LIKE WHAT WE STAND FOR. AND I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR THEM. >>FOLLOW-UP. >>THERE ALWAYS IS — ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT A LEADERSHIP CONVENTION? THERE IS ALWAYS A REVIEW. AS A STANDARD PROTOCOL, THERE WILL BE A REVIEW IN THE CONVENTION.>>Reporter: [Speaking French]>>(Voice of Translator): YOU SAY YOU ARE PROUD OF YOUR CAMPAIGN BUT WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY OF ACTUALLY LOSING SEATS? YOU WEREN’T ABLE TO CREATE MOMENTUM BEFORE THE CAMPAIGN. IF EVERYONE ELECTED IN 2017.>>WELL, IT’S A CHALLENGE. WHAT WE DID WAS TO WORK EXTRAORDINARILY HARD. VERY PRUD OF WHAT WE DID BUT I’M IN THE SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS. THIS MEANS THAT I INTEND TO TRY TO REALIZE JACK’S DREAM. I WANT TO WIN SEATS IN BRAMPTON AND IN TORONTO AND ACROSS QUEBEC AS WELL. BECAUSE PEOPLE NEED US. WE ARE THE PROGRESSIVE OPTION FOR THOSE WHO WANT UNIVERSAL PHARMACARE, WHO WANT TO SEE INVESTMENT IN HEALTH CARE AS WELL. FOR FEEL WHO WANT CONCRETE ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE. IF YOU WANT THAT, YOU WILL HAVE TO VOTE FOR THE N.D.P. PEOPLE WILL NEED US AND WILL CONTINUE TO WORK VERY HARD ON THAT. >>Reporter: WHAT COULD YOU HAVE DONE TO CREATE MOMENTUM? >> IT WAS VERY TOUGH. WE WORKED HARD. [Inaudible Question by the Media]>>I DISAGREE WITH THAT. I THINK WHAT IS HAPPENING IN QUEBEC IS FOLKS, I I WANT TO WIN OVER THE HEARTS AND MIND OF PEOPLE AND WE ARE SEEING THAT HAPPENING. BECAUSE THE BILL IS WRONG. IT IS DISCRIMINATORY. IT IS WRONG TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE BASED ON THEIR LOOK. WHEN SO MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE IT IS OK TO IS CRIM NATE, IT IS MY — DISCRIMINATE, IT IS MY JOB TO SAY THAT IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. IF WANT TO MAKE A SOCIETY, SEPARATE FROM — PROTECTING LGBTQ COMMUNITIES, AND BY SHOWING LISTEN I’M SOMEBODY WHO HAS A TURBAN AND BEARD BUT I BELIEVE IN FIGHTING CLIMATE CRISIS. I BELIEVE IN DEFENDING THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN. I BELIEVE IN EXPANDING THE RIGHT. IT IS NOT JUST GOOD ENOUGH TO TALK ABOUT THE RIGHTS. YOU WANT TO EXPAND THEM TO MAKE SURE THERE IS ACCESS TO ABORTION SERVICES. IT IS SHOWN TO WORK. MAYBE IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO DISCRIMINATE PEOPLE BASED ON THE WAY THEY LOOK WHEN SOMEONE THAT LOOKS LIKE ME SHARES ALL THEIR VALUES. I’M CONFIDENT WHAT WE CAN DO IS CHANGE PEOPLE’S MINDS SETS ON THIS AND THAT IS WHAT I WANT TO DO. I WANT TO WIN OVER PEOPLE’S HEARTS. >>WHAT I SAID CLEARLY, THERE IS A COURT CHALLENGE RIGHT NOW. I WILL FIGHT THIS. I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING. IT EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’M HAPPY TO DO IT. I BELIEVE THERE IS A LOT OF CANADIANS IN THE COUNTRY THAT HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY CAN’T DO THINGS BECAUSE OF THE WAY THEY LOOK. THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY DON’T BELONG BECAUSE OF THE COLOUR OF THEIR SKIN OR THEIR BELIEFS AND I BELIEVE WE NEED TO BUILD A COUNTRY WHERE EVERYONE BELONGS AND THIS BILL DOES NOT DO THAT. I’M CONFIDENT WE CAN WIN PEOPLE OVER AND LET THEM KNOW WE CAN BUILD A BETTER WORLD WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER, UNITE EACH OTHER INSTEAD OF DIVIDING.>>Reporter: YOU LOST A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF SEATS IN QUEBEC. BLAMING Mr. TRUDEAU FOR THE FAILURES IN ONTARIO, SAYING THAT — FEARMONGERING, VOTE SPLITTING. WHAT POINT DO YOU SIT BACK AND GO, THIS WAS ON ME. AS LEADER, DIDN’T DO A GOOD JOB.>>YOU SAW THE CAMPAIGN. I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD JOB. YEAH, THAN IS LIFE. SOMETIMES IT DOESN’T WORK OUT BUT WE FOUGHT HARD. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK HARD. MORE IMPORTANTLY I’M NOT SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS. I WANT MORE NEW DEMOCRATS ELECTED. CANADIANS NEED NEW DEMOCRATS. WE MAKE LIFE BETTER FOR CANADIANS. I’M PROUD OF THE CAMPAIGN. I’M PROUD OF THE WORK THAT I PUT IN. PROUD OF THE WORK MY ENTIRE TEAM PUT IN, I’M PROUD OF THE WORK BUT NOT SATISFY. I WON’T BE SATISFIED UNTIL WE FORM A NEW DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT. AM I SATISFIED? NO. [ Applause ]>>Reporter: SO TRUDEAU RULED OUT A FORPAL COALITION. YOU HAVEN’T SPOKEN WITH HIM SINCE THE ELECTION. ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT THE INFLUENCE YOU MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT YOU HAD IN A MINORITY GOVERNMENT. >> IF Mr. TRUDEAU WANTS TO PUT IN ANYTHING NATIONAL, THAT IS PROGRESSIVE, HE WILL NEED OUR HELP. THE NATIONAL DENTAL CARE PROGRAM WE PUT FORWARD AS IDEA, THAT CANADIANS REALLY ARE GETTING INSPIRED BY, THEY THINK THEY WOULD MAKE THEIR LIFE BETTER, HE WILL NEED TO WORK WITH US TO DELIVER IT. WE KNOW CANADIANS WANT IT. THERE IS MAS PIF SUPPORT. FOR ACTION ON REDUCING THE COST OF CELLPHONE BILLS. WANT TO DO THAT, NEW DEMOCRATS ARE THERE TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN. WE ARE READY TO FIGHT. SO FOR PHARMACARE, ANOTHER EXAMPLE, SOMETHING HE TALKED AND BUT NOT REALLY COME OUT CLEARLY, IF HE WANTS TO DELIVER A UNIVERSAL PHARMACARE THAT IS SINGLE PAYER AND PUBLICALLY DELIVERED IT IS NEW DEM KRAMENTS HE WILL — IT IS NEW DEM KRAMENTS THAT WILL HAVE TO LISTEN TO. >>QUESTION HERE.>>WHAT IS YOUR TAKEN TO ANDREW SCHEER WHO THINKS HE CAN BE SOCIALLY CONSERVATIVE AND BE PRIME MINISTER.>>IT IS CLEAR YOU CAN’T IN CANADA. CANADA MADE IT REALLY CLEAR THAT WE AS A COUNTRY ARE STRONG ON THE FACT THAT A WOMAN HAS A RIGHT TO CHOOSE OR A PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE AND EVERYTHING, IN FACT THAT DECISION IS PERSON AND HEALTH CARE PROVIDER AND NO ONE HAS ANY BUSINESS BEING INVOLVED. IN CANADA WE SUPPORT LGBTQ RIGHTS. THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT IS WHERE THE MAJORITY OF CANADIANS ARE AND THAT IS A GOOD THING. YOU CANNOT HAVE MR. SCHEER’S BELIEFS AND BE THE PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA. IT IS CLEAR.>>Reporter: YOU LEERERSHIP — LEADER SLIP BE TESTED IN A MINORITY SCENARIO. WHAT ARE YOU BRINGING TO SCHNABEL >>FIGHTING FOR PEOPLE. THE BIG DIFFERENCE, Mr. TRUDEAU HAS SHOWN HIS PRIORITIES ARE NOT WHAT ARE PEOPLE’S NEED. I WANT TO MAKE THIS CLEAR. IT IS IMPORTANT. HIS PRIORITIES HAVE BEEN WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE ON KARM PHARMACARE, HE CAVED INTO THE PHARMACEUTICAL LOBBYIST. WE NEED UNIVERSAL PUBLICALLY DELIVERED SINGLE PAYER PHARMACARE FOR ALL. I WILL FIGHT FOR THAT. WHILE Mr. TRUDEAU TALKS TO TALK ABOUT IT, DURING AN ELECTION CAMPAIGN, IT IS CLEAR WHEN HE IS PRESSURED HE DIDN’T DELIVER. I WON’T CAVE IN. WILL MAKE SURE HE DELIVERED ON WHAT CANADIAN REALLY WANT, WHICH IS A UNIVERSAL SYSTEM WHICH WILL LIFT EVERYTHING — EVERYBODY UP.>> [Speaking French]>>(Voice of Translator): YOU SAID Mr. TRUDEAU NEEDS YOU TO PUT THE LEGISLATION THROUGH. WHY YOU ARE SAYING THAT? THE BLOC IS PROGRESSIVE AS WELL AND THE LIBERALS MIGHT DECIDE TO WORK WITH THEM RATHER THAN WITH YOU. >>WELL, I SAID IF Mr. TRUDEAU WANTS TO IMPLEMENT NATIONAL PROGRESSIVE PROGRAM, HE NEEDS US. >>WELL, YES, PERHAPS. IN ISSUES PER TARYNING TO QUEBEC HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO ALLY WITH THE BLOC BUT IF WE ARE TALKING ABOUT NATIONAL PROJECTS, TO HELP ALL CANADIANS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, WELL, HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO WORK WITH US. AS THE ONLY PROGRESSIVE OPTION. >>WELL, I HAVE SAID THAT THEY WON’T DO ANYTHING TO ACTUALLY PROMOTE INITIATIVES AND ELSEWHERE IN CANADA. [End of Translation]>>NEW QUESTIONS?>>GO, GO, GO.>>[Inaudible Question by the Media] .>>LIBERAL DONE NEED THE N.D.P. HOW WILL YOU APPLY PRESSURE. WHAT SORT OF LEVERAGE DOES THE N.D.P. HAVE?>>IF THE GOVERNMENT, IF Mr. TRUDEAU WANTS TO DELIVER SNAG IS NATIONAL AND PROGRESSIVE, HE NEEDS TO WORK WITH US. THERE IS NO ONE ELSE THAT WILL WORK WITH HIM THAT CAN HELP PASS A BILL TO DELIVER SOMETHING LIKE UNIVERSAL PHARMACARE. IF HE WANTS THAT, THAT IS SOMETHING HE WANTS — IF YOU WANT TO DELIVER, HE WILL NEED TO WORK WITH US. IT IS CLEAR HE DOESN’T WANT TO WORK WITH THEM ON. THAT THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU, EVERYBODY, MERE MERCI BEAUCOUP. >>PETER Van DUSEN, LISTENING TO N.D.P. LEADER JAGMEET SINGH.
