Why vote NDP?
Roger Duguay and the New Democratic Party are building an alternative to Liberal and Conservative incompetence. Our party is under new management.
Roger Duguay has a team of experienced New Brunswickers who have worked in politics across Canada and around the world. We are businesspeople, workers, community volunteers: people like you, who share your values.
We are a party of middle class New Brunswick families. We are not afraid to confront our province’s problems. We are optimistic about our future but we know we have to be realistic.
We are a moderate, pragmatic party, committed to giving everyone an equal chance to do well in life. We will reward hard work and persistence, and make sure New Brunswick families have the tools they need to succeed.
That means good schools, good healthcare, safe communities and roads and other public infrastructure that work for you, the people who pay for them.
We need an honest conversation about what government can do, and what it can’t. We are tired of governments that promise and spend without making life better for our families. The Liberals and Conservatives have broken too many promises. They have had their chance, it is time for something new.
The NDP is under new management and we’re working hard for only one reason.
We want to put New Brunswick under new management: Your management.
If that is what you want, join us and get involved.
Your party, your province, your NDP.

NDP vow 'modest' campaignhttp://timestranscript.canadaeast.com/news/article/1194456
NDP Leader Roger Duguay said " any spending commitments we make in this election will be modest, and they will be balanced out by savings elsewhere."
"Unlike the Liberals and Progressive Conservatives, we are going to talk openly and honestly about what government spending we would cut to reduce the deficit and make room in the budget for our modest spending proposals. We have specific proposals to cut waste, but we will not be cutting front-line services like health care and education."
The NDP are rebuilding their support base this fall after seeing it collapse completely in a disastrous provincial campaign four years ago.
Prior to that, the NDP had one MLA in the legislature for 14 years - Elizabeth Weir - who was always more popular than her party.
Duguay said what he's hoping for is a minority government with the NDP holding the balance of power.
