While other parties plan to cut, we plan to build. On housing, Forward Together will significantly increase supply and affordability, streamline the approval process and protect renters. On public health and safety, we will create more supportive housing, provide more harm reduction and treatment options, and offer greater mental health supports for our most vulnerable neighbours. On climate change, we will build a sustainable, equitable and vibrant economy rooted in reconciliation, accessibility and inclusivity.
