  • Leaders Make Final Pitches on Last Day of Campaigning

    Party leaders and hopefuls alike are entering the home stretch in the last full day of campaigning before the election tomorrow.

    Each leader had a chance make their final arguments on VOCM Open Line with Paddy Daly.

    Liberal leader Dwight Ball admitted there have been challenges due to the financial state of the province, but said they’re in it for the long haul.

    He says it hasn’t always been perfect, but they’ve made significant progress and the province is in a better place now than it was before.

    PC leader Ches Crosbie called in from the road to offer the PCs as an alternative to the last four years, particularly in regard to health care.

    Crosbie says the question people have to ask is “am I better off under Mr. Ball?” and the answer, he thinks, is a resounding no.

    NDP Leader Alison Coffin made the case for a better living wage in the province, saying that the burden of a higher minimum wage doesn’t have to fall on small businesses.

    She says while she is uneasy about a two-tier minimum wage for small or big business, a $15 minimum wage could be made easier on employers by eliminating taxes on small business.

    The NL Alliance went from an unknown just a few months ago to a recognized party many saw as winning the first leadership debate. Leader Graydon Pelley says whats been missing in provincial government is the will to work together.

    He says the people of the province are more realistic than politicians give them credit for, and it’s important that their voice is part of that conversation.

    Polls open at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. You can follow live coverage on 590 VOCM starting at 6:00 p.m..
