I believe Canadians desire a just, compassionate and democratic Canada. With both Progressive Conservative and Liberal governments and strong citizen participation, over the decades Canada has developed such a society. I believe we live in exciting and opportune times.
Canada is well endowed and strategically placed to live out a hopeful vision for the common good. We are blessed with resources, people, a co-operative spirit, vibrant business and labour communities and imagination infused with compassion. Believing in policies and programmes to enhance the common good, we developed a global reputation for being peaceful and progressive. Until this moment in time.
