Campaign Launch: Oscar Cole-Arnal for Regional Chair
October 12, 2014
Oz Cole-Arnal ran for office once before as a federal candidate for the NDP in the 2011 elections. Cole-Arnal wants to see higher minimum wage, free transit for people under poverty line. Other parts of Cole-Arnal's platform include raising the minimum wage in Waterloo Region to $14 an hour and increasing the availability of affordable housing. He also pledges that if elected, he would donate his regional salary to local anti-poverty causes and charities.
"I would say my appeal would be to the non-voter, to the disgruntled voter," said Cole-Arnal. "It's a long shot, I'm a fringe candidate, and I would be less of a fringe candidate if the very people I'm claiming to support would get out and vote." Cole-Arnal says if elected, he would donate his regional salary to local anti-poverty causes and charities. (Matthew Kang/CBC)
