ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Newfoundland and Labrador's Liberal leader has released what he calls the "bare bones" of his party's election platform.

Dwight Ball told a party fundraising event in St. John's on Monday the Liberal plan calls for building a smarter economy with debt management and debt reduction as priorities.

Ball says oil revenues have made the Progressive Conservative government lazy in diversifying the economy.

He also promised youth wellness programs, a strategy for youth entrepreneurship, a multi-pronged approach to health care and an aggressive immigration policy.

Ball says he has big dreams for the province and believes that by working with the public change is possible.

The next provincial election will likely be held in just over a year. (VOCM)
