Morgane Oger M.S.M. B.A.Sc.
Morgane Oger believes in addressing injustice, corruption, and political interference that stops everyone from participating equally in Canadian society. Whether it is Justin Trudeau’s broken promise to end the blood ban, his firing of his attorney general for doing her job, or allowing hatred and disinformation to be amplified in Canada's public institutions because “that kind" of discrimination is still quietly tolerable to decision makers who run our institutions, Canadians know that injustice, corruption and political interference harm everyone.
Justin Trudeau promise to do things differently, He didn't do it by buying the Trans Mountain pipeline, He didn't do it when it came to political interference with SNC-Lavallin, and he broke his promise to end the stigmatizing blood ban.
Head to toe healthcare including Pharmacare. Morgane Oger knows what it is like to have to decide between paying for a prescription and putting food on the table. It is horrible and nobody should have to decide between their family’s healthcare and other basic needs.
Morgane will push for Canada to live up to our climate commitments. Morgane believes in ensuring Canada prioritizes support for commercial projects that move us closer to addressing the ongoing climate emergency.
Risking an oil-tanker disaster in the Salish Sea by creating a seven-fold increase in tanker traffic transiting through Coal Harbour and English Bay is a striking example of the Trudeau government simultaneously failing coastal British Columbians and Canada’s climate commitments. Making Canadians buy a share in this Liberal boondoggle adds insult to injury.
