The Liberal party in Newfoundland and Labrador has rolled out its election platform.
Liberal Leader Kevin Aylward says all of the promises will cost $145-million in the first year alone — if the Liberals win the Oct. 11 election.
As well, Mr. Aylward says the party would immediately halt development of the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project, pending a full review.
Among the party's new initiatives, the Liberals plan to create a legacy fund by investing 10 per cent of oil revenues — that's about $250-million annually.
The Liberal leader describes the fund as a savings plan for the province's future.
The party also promised to set up a $250-million fisheries diversification fund and launch a judicial inquiry into management of the fishery.Report Typo/Error
