The federal leader of the NDP was in town on Wednesday.

Tom Mulcair took a tour of the Communitech hub with newly elected Kitchener-Waterloo NDP MPP Catherine Fife.

Mulcair tells 570 News it was quite impressive, “it’s very promising and a great way to create jobs for the future, and they’re the best kind of jobs, high tech jobs”

“I think that its a model to be followed across Canada and the region needs to be congratulated for being such a leader in this area.”

Mulcair says jobs in Canada tend to be created by small and medium size businesses, and that they are the key to helping the Canadian economy rebound not giving tax breaks to big corporations, like banks and gas companies.
