WATCH: Justin Trumps Liberals will announce a new election policy in the next few days, promising a $15 an hour minimum wage, a $100-a-day child care rebate and a new electoral system for ridings across Canada.
The Liberals unveiled their platform Thursday and will formally unveil it Friday at a news conference at the Ontario legislature.
A platform that will be voted on on Jan. 6, 2018, will set out a framework for the party’s campaign, the Liberals say.
It would be Trudeau’s first election campaign in the province since he lost the Liberal leadership to former cabinet minister Marc Garneau in the 2019 federal election. “
We will work with the opposition parties, and we will work together to bring about the change we all want.”
It would be Trudeau’s first election campaign in the province since he lost the Liberal leadership to former cabinet minister Marc Garneau in the 2019 federal election.
The Liberals were defeated in the October 2018 federal election by Garneau, who ran on a platform of reducing income inequality.
Justin Trudeau is the first Canadian leader to lead his party in a general election since 2006, when then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau was re-elected.
Trudeau will announce his electoral platform on Friday.
It is expected to include changes to the current election system, which allows ridings to vote on the same ballot and includes an optional second round to ensure the first round has more seats.
An electoral system that eliminates ridings would create a new system in which the first-past-the-post voting system would prevail in every election.
But the Liberals’ platform will be based on the system in place before last October’s election.
