Stop the Tax on Books

On January 1, 2017, Newfoundland and Labrador will become the only province in Canada to tax books. This will discourage book sales, hurting local bookstores, publishers and authors. We have one of the lowest literacy rates in Canada. The other provinces don't tax books: they know how important it is to encourage reading and literacy.

Stop the Liberal Levy

NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi) is inviting residents of Newfoundland and Labrador to sign a petition against the most regressive move in the most regressive budget this province has ever seen.

Minimum Wage Campaign

Newfoundland and Labrador has one of the lowest minimum wages in Canada, resulting in many minimum wage workers earning poverty incomes. We must raise the wage to a fairer level of $15.00 as a step towards a living wage before indexing the minimum wage to inflation.
