We’re stronger together
I know our movement can build a better Canada. And I know we can form the government Canadians deserve – a New Democratic government – in 2019. But I need you there with me.
That’s why our convention is so important. New Democrats have built great things – like universal health care, retirement pensions, and protections for workers. Things that still define what it means to be Canadian. This is a party built on big ideas. And when we succeed, it’s because of the inspiration, the dedication, and the energy that comes from all of you.
This is a big moment for our party, and for our country. Convention is where we lay the ground work for the next two years and beyond. So I want to invite you to be a part of it. Whether you’ve been a member for many years, you just joined today, or you want to learn more about what it means to be a New Democrat – if you want to help build a fairer, more just Canada, you belong at Ottawa 2018.
With love and courage,
