NDP hopes for a jumpstart as it releases policy planks ahead of campaign

OTTAWA - The federal New Democrats have been looking for a boost and they re hoping to get that on Sunday, when leader Jagmeet Singh presents the party s policy vision for the upcoming election campaign.

The party will be announcing what it calls "A New Deal for Canada," which it bills as a plan to make life more affordable, protect public services, fight climate change and create "good jobs."

Singh plans a speech about the plan at a convention of Ontario s provincial NDP in Hamilton.

Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is also set to deliver a keynote at the convention over the weekend.

Horwath and Singh worked very closely when he was the deputy leader of the provincial party before he left for the federal scene.
