NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is concerned about the ballooning federal debt and is once again calling for a tax on Canadians with fortunes topping 20 million dollars.

Singh held a news conference this morning in Ottawa in advance of this afternoon's fall economic statement.

He wants any sector-specific support the Trudeau government offers to come with strings attached to ensure funding flows to the benefit of workers rather than shareholders or executives.

Singh is also pushing for enhanced child care, universal pharmacare and the end of for-profit long-term care homes.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh would not commit to a firm "red line" for ending his party's support of the minority government.
