This includes getting paid sick days for people who need it, getting profits out of long-term care facilities and making sure all Canadians can get vaccinated.
Speaking specifically about paid sick leave, Singh described it as, “one of the best tools to keep people safe given the workplace transfers of COVID-19.”
It’s an issue he has brought up on several occasions in the past, after previously calling on the federal government to ensure all Canadians are able to get compensated time off if they become unwell during the pandemic.
“New Democrats are ready to fight for you,” the party leader concluded on Saturday, January 23.
In the same message, Singh accused the prime minister of focusing on triggering a federal election, instead.
