Andrea Horwath’s NDP is at the top of the class when it comes to dealing with the health impacts of poverty, according to a report from an alliance of anti-poverty health-care workers in Ontario.
The New Democrats earned a B+ in the Health Providers Against Poverty election report card, while the Green Party of Ontario was given a C+ and the Liberals a D+. The Progressive Conservatives received a failing grade because their platform met “only a small proportion” of the authors’ criteria. The report was initially released last week and then updated over the weekend to accommodate the late-arriving PC platform.
