NDP platform promises licensed child care, ‘sanctuary province,’ hydro cuts

The minimum wage would hit $15 and then be tied to inflation, and an NDP government would require employers to offer full-time employees a minimum of three weeks paid vacation, up from the currently mandated two weeks. Hydro bills would be cut by 30% through measures such as an end to mandatory time of use, free electricity delivery for First Nations communities and ending the differential between rural and urban delivery rates while buying back Hydro One using its dividends to the Ontario government.
