As part of Jagmeet Singh's NDP team, Lisa would fight for a Canada that works for everyone.
Lisa’s work has been dedicated to helping those most affected by poverty, homelessness, mental illness, and addictions. Lisa is focused on implementing effective, community-driven solutions.
Rising rent, lack of affordable childcare, and growing medication costs make life difficult in our community. Lisa knows we must take stronger action so that no one has to choose between medication or a safe home, and can access affordable childcare.
Lisa grounds her policy decisions in the understanding that we are in a climate emergency. Lisa is committed to swift climate action ensuring a just transition for all workers that involves meaningful steps towards reconciliation.
Lisa values public education for its role in creating equitable opportunities. She also believes all Canadians deserve access to affordable post secondary education without the additional burden of accruing interest on student loans.
Lisa has been endorsed by prominent community leaders, advocates, and progressives because of her experienced, people-centred approach.
"I am happy to endorse Lisa Marie Barron as the next MP for Nanaimo-Ladysmith. As a long time resident of Nanaimo, as an elected school board trustee, and as a person who works with people in vulnerable situations, Lisa Marie has a good grasp on both the challenges facing Nanaimo-Ladysmith and the strengths the community brings. I am confident that Lisa Marie, working with the community, will be a strong voice in Ottawa as your MP".
