It may be the height of talking season, but National Democratic Party candidates let young supporters do most of the talking Wednesday evening when they launched the party’s 2011 manifesto, “Putting Our Country First,” at the Sir Olva Georges Plaza.

After remarks by party leader Dr. Orlando Smith, seven young NDP supporters gave the party’s “100 Timely and Effective Solutions to Improving Our Standard of Living.”

The solutions ranged from the general, such as “strengthening the financial services sector,” to the highly specific, such as introducing landlord-tenant legislation and having energy-efficient light bulbs installed in every home within a year of taking office.
