Provincial Pledge

The Religious Social Action Coalition of Newfoundland and Labrador (RSACNL) calls upon all candidates for the House of Assembly of Newfoundland and Labrador to work toward greater economic fairness in    this Province and Canada. More specifically, we seek to eliminate poverty in NL. Despite various governmental and nongovernmental efforts in the past, poverty has persisted in NL at an unacceptable level. A significant number of our citizens have none or low income, substandard housing and living conditions, lack of educational opportunities, inadequate health services, unhappy family life and many associated ills. These families and individuals have been deprived of their dignity, which must be restored.

As faith communities and as individuals we have put aside our different theologies and ideologies to work together on our shared moral outrage at the injustice of poverty in our midst today. We ask that you, if elected as MHAs, work toward eliminating poverty in Newfoundland and Labrador.  We also ask you to work with various organizations including ours in achieving this goal. In addition to your role as lawmakers, it is important that you support the work of various nongovernmental organizations in identifying initiatives and activities directed at eliminating poverty and creating fairness in economic and social opportunities for all.


If elected:
  • I pledge to work toward eliminating poverty in my constituency
  • I pledge to work with organizations in my constituency to eliminate poverty
  • I pledge to support other organizations in their initiatives and activities that are working toward creating economic fairness both within my constituency and throughout Newfoundland and Labrador
