Making Life Affordable

Helping to Make Ends Meet

For too many families in Ontario, it is getting harder and harder to pay the bills and make ends meet. Over the last four years, the cost of buying a home in Ontario has doubled, rent has gone up by $200 a month, and prices keep climbing at the grocery store. Despite Doug Ford’s promises of lower gasoline and hydro prices, gasoline prices have climbed as much as 50 cents a litre and electricity rates continue to climb. Instead of helping families get ahead, Doug Ford has made life more difficult – whether it’s freezing the minimum wage, scrapping student aid, or cancelling Ontario’s drug program. We need a plan to really make life more affordable.

Kristyn and the NDP will:

  • Tackle the housing crisis by cracking down on speculation, increasing affordable housing supply, bringing back real rent control, and fixing the Landlord and Tenant Board
  • Reduce auto insurance rates by ending postal code discrimination, exploring all avenues to reduce rates, and enforcing transparency
  • Deliver affordable child care by speeding up the timeline for $10-a-day child care, increasing wages for child care workers, and reducing fees for before and after school care
  • Start fixing the electricity sector by expanding renewable energy, conserving energy, ending privatization, and stopping waste
  • Make groceries more affordable through a provincial food strategy
  • Protect consumers by regulating gas to stop gouging at the pumps, banning predatory payday loans, and establishing an independent Consumer Watchdog
