THE THREE PARTY SYSTEM IN CANADA

———————————————————————————————————–  NDP PARTY OF CANADA  —————————————————————————————————————–

 

In this day and age we are confronted with a change of the English language, the words are the same however the meanings have been changed to fit the now generation. This leads to a break down of our ability to understand each other, as we are aware this weakens our unity as Canadians this causes Canada to be slowly ripped apart. The leaders of this country are not keeping their promises they made to get elected, as Canadians we are less inclined to believe the future MP’s, and the leaders of Canada.

This will be a report card on the four parties that are using words to sway our minds to vote for them, it is up to the citizens of Canada to make this country strong again.

THE NDP PARTY— The NDP was founded in 1961 out of the merger of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) with the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC

The federal and provincial (or territorial) level NDPs are more integrated than other political parties in Canada, and have shared membership, the NDP has often been Canada’s third or fourth largest party in Parliament, at times aligning itself with the Liberal Party of Canada,

Specific inclusion of the party’s history as the continuation of the more radical Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, and specific identification of the “democratic socialist” tradition as a continuing influence on the party are part of the language of the preamble to the party’s constitution. New Democrats seek a future that brings together the best of the insights and objectives of Canadians who, within the social democratic and democratic socialist traditions, have worked through farmer, labour, co-operative, feminist, human rights and environmental movements, and with First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, to build a more just, equal, and sustainable Canada within a global community dedicated to the same goals.

DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST SYSTEM

Workers are no longer exploited, since they own the means of production. All profits are spread equitably among all workers, according to his or her contribution, the system eliminates poverty.

The factors of production are managed by a democratically elected government. Central planning distributes common goods, such as mass transit, housing, and energy, while the free market is allowed to distribute consumer goods.

This type of government only is good if the people want to live in that fashion, however the government needs to be for the people.

As we can see there is not much difference between the NDP and the Liberal government, this is not what our country needs at this time. The influx of refugees coming into Canada is putting a strain on the economy and the aging population, if there is no change Canada will fall. Elections in 2018 and 2019 will either make Canada strong or will destroy the economy.

————————————————————————————————————–THE LIBERAL PARTY—————————————————————————————————————

The party espouses the principles of liberalism and generally sits at the centre of the Canadian political spectrum.[10][11][12] The Liberal Party is traditionally positioned to the left of the Conservative Party of Canada and to the right of the New Democratic Party (NDP

The party has dominated federal politics for much of Canada’s history, holding power for almost 69 years in the 20th century—more than any other party in a developed country—and as a result, it is sometimes referred to as Canada’s “natural governing party“.[14][15] The Liberals’ signature policies and legislative decisions include universal health care, the Canada Pension PlanCanada Student Loanspeacekeepingmultilateralismofficial bilingualism, official multiculturalismpatriating the Canadian constitution and the entrenchment of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Clarity Act, and making same-sex marriage legal nationwide

During the beginning of the 21st century, the party lost a significant amount of support, to the benefit of both the Conservatives and the NDP. In the 2011 federal election, the Liberals had the worst showing in its history, capturing only 19 percent of the popular vote and 34 seats—becoming the third-place party in the House of Commons for the first time, In the 2015 federal election, the Liberal Party under Justin Trudeau returned to prominence with its best showing since the 2000 election, winning 39.5 percent of the popular vote and 184 seats, thus regaining a majority of seats in the House of Commons

In 2015 Trudeau made promises to Canadians that he had no intention of keeping as we are aware he has done more for the rich and refugees than the citizens who elected him in, time for a real change this country has been battered by the liberals for too long.

On April 14, 2013 Trudeau was elected leader of the liberal party winning the first ballot by 80%. By the time the 2015 federal election was called, the Liberals had been knocked back into third place. Trudeau and his advisors planned to mount a campaign based on economic stimulus in the hopes of regaining the mantle of being the party that best represented change from the New Democrats.

Bloomberg‘s Josh Wingrove and Theophilos Argitis similarly described it as “capping the biggest political comeback in the country’s history

The liberal agenda is not far from the NDP’s core values as we see there is no plan to create jobs for the middle class, nor is there anything about the refugees who are not willing to live in Canada to have respect for Canadian values and uphold the law. Are we starting to see a picture developing with the agenda in place for our country.

——————————————————————————————————————-THE PC PARTY———————————————————————————————————————

 

The Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario (FrenchParti progressiste-conservateur de l’Ontario),[5] often shortened to Ontario PC Party or PC, is a centre-right political party in Ontario, Canada.

It has governed the province for 80 of the 150 years since Confederation, including an uninterrupted run from 1943 to 1985. It is the Official Opposition in the outgoing Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

Davis governed until 1985 with a team of advisers known as the “Big Blue Machine” because of their reputed political and strategic skills. Their stamp on the party was so strong that many refer to the Tories’ long rule over Ontario as the “Big Blue Machine era”.

During Davis’s time as leader of the PC Party, the party moved to the centre, and on some issues, moved to the left of the Liberals. However, its base of support remained with socially conservative voters in rural central Ontario. This made him one of the most popular politicians in Ontario’s history. Other conservatives in the federal PC Party accused him of damaging the conservative image in Canada by moving to the left on some issues. Davis continued the rapid expansion of community colleges, universities and highways, across Ontario.

Davis retired in 1985. At a leadership convention, he was succeeded by Industry and Trade Minister Frank Miller. Miller was considerably more conservative than Davis, and began shifting the party back to the right. Soon after taking office, he called an election in which the Conservatives were reduced to a minority government, and actually finished behind the Liberals in the popular vote for the first time in 42 years.

Soon afterward, the Ontario New Democratic Party of Bob Rae reached an agreement with David Peterson‘s Liberals in which the NDP would support a Liberal minority government. Miller was defeated in a no-confidence motion on June 18. Peterson was asked to form a government later in the day, ending the longest period of one-party rule in Canadian provincial history. Miller was replaced as leader by Larry Grossman at a second leadership convention.

The 2004 leadership election was held on September 18, 2004, electing John Tory as the party’s new leader. Tory, who had first worked as an aide to Premier Davis, was elected to the Ontario legislature in a by-election in March, 2005, in the seat that Eves held.[6]

In polling prior to the 2007 general election, the PCs’ support rose after the first Liberal budget in 2004. The party was virtually tied with the Liberals, as Tory has experimented with several different orientations. During his first year as leader, Tory attempted to rise above partisan politics, openly contemptuous of partisan moves and pledging to improve decorum in the legislature. In his second year as leader, Tory adopted a more traditional approach to the issues, sharply opposing the Liberal plans on taxes, spending, deficits and cuts. Heading into the election year, Tory put most of his emphasis on criticizing the government’s handling of a standoff with Mohawk aboriginals in Caledonia in order to portray the government as weak. He also emphasized traditional right-wing issues like taxes, crime and government spending.

During the 2006 PC Policy Convention.

The track record of the PC government has been weak over the last 25 years,  it seems like the reason for this has been the need for fresh ideas. Today there seems to be a leader who stepped up to the plate to make a difference in the lives of Canadians.
