The Peggy Nash Plan
1. No riding left behind
TheNDPachieveditsgreatestelectoralvictorybecauseJackLaytonbelievedwecouldwineverywhere.Nocapsongrowthwereallowed.OurnextleadermustcontinuebuildingourPartywithsimilarconviction.Whilefocusingenergyonstrategically-targetedareas,wemustneverstopsupportingallourmembersandstrivingtowininlesslikelyplaces.Toensurenoridingisleftbehind,theNDPundermyleadershipwill:
a.
Target a minimum o 85 priority growth seats.
TheHouseofCommonsissettogrowto338MPsinthe2015election.Thatmeans170seatswillbeneededtosecureamajority.TheNDPcurrentlyholds101seats,soanadditional85seatswouldgiveusaworkable16-seatmajority.Toachievethis,weneedafocusedandwell-resourcedstrategyinplace.Ihavetheskillsandexperiencetoleadthat.
b.
Recruit dynamic candidates and ensure support or ridings across Canada.
Iwilloverseetheestablishmentofanexperiencedandcredibleteamrightacrossthecountry.Becauseeachelectionisanopportunitytomakeinroadswheretheremayhavebeennone,itiscrucialtonurtureournextgenerationofprioritygrowthridings.Wecannotaffordtofailatthis.
c.
Hold onto the Quebec 58.
MostofournewQuebecMPswereelectedwithonlyafewactiveridingassociationsandorganizers.Now,wemustallocateresourcestohelpthemdeliverthemosteffectiverepresentationtotheirconstituents.Andthatrepresentationmustbeproperlycommunicated.Withthededicationofafully-bilingualleaderwhocanvisitQuebecandconnectwithvoters,wewillbuildonourvictorythere.IamcommittedtotranslatingourgrowthinelectoralsupportfromQuebeckersintolong-termPartysupport.OutsideofQuebec,wemustalsoimplementastrategicplantosupportandretainallourincumbentMPsacrossthecountry.
