NDP unveil platform for June election

TORONTO—Ontario's New Democrats are promising free child-care for families earning less than $40,000 and a boost to hospital budgets if elected this spring, but say they would run multi-year deficits to pay for their plan.

The promises are part of the party's election platform, called “Change for the Better,” released yesterday—a month-and-a-half ahead of the June vote.
