Member of Parliament Niki Ashton says instead Canadians received a budget that maintains business as usual and continues massive giveaways to big corporations while people are struggling to make ends meet. She says northerners and Canadians deserve a government that puts them first by creating good jobs, implementing a single payer universal public pharmacare, improving healthcare for everyone and making sure that post secondary education is not a debt sentence. Ashton adds First Nations deserve more than a government that refuses to tackle the housing crisis on reserve, the lack of adequate water and sewer services or the continued underfunding of critical services. She concludes people across the country deserve better.
