Campaign tagline: Guy Caron For NDP Leadership Age: 49 Riding: Rimouski-Neigette—Témiscouat­a—Les Basques (Quebec) Fun fact: Before he got hooked on economics, Caron’s dream was to be a sports journalist. He has said one of his fondest memories is when he got to interview hockey legend Guy Lafleur for his student newspaper. Key policies: Basic Income (payouts to bring Canadians with low earnings up to the “low income cut-off,” the poverty line that varies by region and family size and is set by Statistics Canada); create new electoral system in first six months as prime minister. Quote: “I’m really bringing a significan­tly unique perspectiv­e, which is the perspectiv­e of a Quebecer who was with Jack from the beginning, who can bring economic credibilit­y to the party.”
