For Economic Prosperity and a Solid Constitution
that Protects the True Definition of an United Democracy

Arms raised and glasses held high to toast: “Peace, Order, and Good Governance.”

I am happy to announce that Canada’s Conservative Party is no longer defined by Alberta’s oil mongering elitism, by the Maritimes’ pork barrelling, and by Toronto’s corporate rococo.

Conservative Members of Parliament were once reputed to be puppets for American corporations and would therefore lose their votes to the Liberals and the NDP at elections. All we kept hearing from those Tories was pipelines this and pipelines that, and trade deals here and trade deals there.

Some Conservative MPs would even insist that Canada’s agriculture and poultry cartel be broken up so that American farmers can infiltrate the market, forcing local farmers to sell their products at more competitive prices.

The cartel was initially established to protect the interests of Canadian farmers. Opening it up to the competitive free market would be detrimental for them. For the consumer, it will not necessarily lead to significant price drops.

Other Conservative MPs were obsessed with trade deals that would negatively impact provincial and municipal economies. But Canada should have bilateral trade deals effective during certain seasons of the year only for those specific products it doesn’t produce itself. It should minimize imports and maximize its exports.

It is evident to all citizens at this point that Canada must update its constitution to protect its democracy and must focus on effective policy that would lead to economic domestic growth without compromising its core values and authenticity.

From Port to Starboard

Passing the Left Hand’s Pen that Fudged Together
Canada’s Constitution to the Right’s Grip

In the aftermath of a recent verdict that affirmed that Canada’s Liberal government would rather protect the human rights of a convicted terrorist than guard the safety of its own law-abiding citizens, it is an opportune time to reflect upon those trials and errors of past collective experience, upon the omissions and loopholes in federal law that invite misinterpretations and deviation, driving the nation away from the true meaning of an united democracy.

Canada should commit to inscribing its constitution with clarity, precision, and parry, binding the provinces closer together and upholding the highest standards of true democratic ideals.

In its renewed confident language, tone, and content, not one ill-intended individual should profit from any traces of vagueness, generalization, inaccuracy, incompletion, or double entendres that were once looming in the shadows of those words selected to embody federal law.

Amendments and Addendums

1)Remove the Non-Withstanding Clause which allows provinces to appeal federal decisions. Provinces and municipalities can have their own jurisdictions that correspond to federal laws only in particular areas of law and only pertaining to certain laws.

2) A Canadian Citizen’s Right to Own Personal Property. Unlike many other first world countries, the right to own property is currently not included in Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms. For urban areas, this right should apply only to Canadian citizens residing permanently in Canada.

3) Priority Granted to Canadian Citizen Over Non-Citizen in Acquisition of Real Estate Property in Cities, as well as for Rental Accommodation. In the sales or rental leases of urban real estate property, priority is given to a Canadian citizen over a non-citizen.

4) Mandatory Price Ceilings on Urban Real Estate Sales and on Rent Accommodation Differing from City to City. Price ceilings limit the maximum price that a house can be sold at and an apartment can be rented for. They should vary from city to city and be set according to whether the property is luxury, middle, or low end and whether the house is a cottage, split-level, bungalow, duplex, triplex, as well as what the size of property is.

5) Anti-Tolerance-for-Terrorism Act. Proven association to terrorist organization or a terrorist acting of his/her own accord will lead to the loss of protection of his/her human rights according to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, even if the terrorist is a minor at the time crimes are committed. Canadians involved in terrorist activities will be deported back to their countries of origin or their parents’ country of origin.

6) Provinces are not allowed to hold a referendum for separation from federal powers. A province that holds a referendum for separation will be tried in the Highest Court of Canada as having broken Constitutional Law. It will also incur Military Intervention from the Canadian Armed Forces.

7) Three Main Ministers in Prime Minister’s Cabinet (Minister of Finance, Minister of Defence, and Minister of  Justice) and the Governor General are elected by party members so that the Prime Minister does not end up appointing his/her favourite “friends” to those top positions. Minister of Defence must have had a high ranking in the Canadian Forces and a University Degree in National Defence from the Royal Military College. Minister of Finance must have a Bachelor’s in Commerce specializing in Finance and years of experience in the banking industry and financially managing a large company. Minister of Justice must have experience specializing in Constitutional Law.

8) Honest Calculation and Reporting of Unemployment Rate and Government Stats. Stats, national debt, balance sheet of assets and liabilities and unemployment rate posted on Stats Canada website does not currently jibe with reality. A law should be implemented ensuring that government properly calculates important numbers and accurately reports them.

9) Parliament Born in Canada Law Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers, Superior Court Judges, the Governor General, Members of Parliament and the Speaker of the House MUST have been born in Canada.

10) Yearly Quota on Immigration. Amount of immigrants admitted yearly to Canada should depend on and be related to the national unemployment rate and should correspond to the nations’ labour needs. Municipalities are not allowed to declare themselves as “sanctuary cities” as they must abide by federal immigration laws, which do not consider refugee status claims by refugees crossing the border illegally to be valid.

11) Anti-Inflation Law Addendum. While former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau focused on wage control to slow down inflation, methods of controlling inflation should be inquired further. The Minister of Finance, not only Canada’s Central Bank, should have the power to influence decisions related to amount of money printed and percentage of interest rate set by the central bank. Re-investing in gold reserves (which were sold off mostly during the Trudeau era) in order to back up the value of our money supply by at least 40% should be looked into.

12) No Foreign Aid in Federal Government. Raising money for earthquakes, floods, etc. are privately organized through NGOs and non-for-profit charity organizations.

Manufacturing Canada

In addition to constitutional amendments and addendums, more and more products should be made using Canadian labour.

Although the crude oil industry is the fuel of Canada’s economy and is in the process of being further evolved, Canada should be manufacturing its own car brand, laptops, cell phones, electrical appliances, snow removal equipment (not depending on the American company John Deere), construction, forestry and agriculture equipment, as well as clothes, shoes, and souvenirs.

It is no news to Canadians that its nations’ manufacturing industry is close to extinction in the 21st Century. Factories, since the 1980s, have closed up shop in Canada, taking their businesses offshore in order to cut overhead costs. Service jobs, related to call centers, are also outsourced to offshore markets.

In keeping with the belief that capitalism is not the culprit for a nation’s economic woes, the Moderate Conservative should be wary of government overspending leading to debt, government mismanagement of public funds, and government lack of intervention in controlling market prices, buying trends, and labour outsourcing.

On economic policy, the Moderate Conservative should ensure that:

- No significant debt pulls down the value of the currency.  Necessary cutbacks should be made. Spending should be controlled.

- Canadian economy not only revolves around crude oil but is also rooted in other industries, particularly the manufacturing industry should be developed further.

- Due to the creation of new business and the banning of labor outsourcing in the manufacturing and customers services industries, Canada sees a rising productivity in its workforce, reducing its imports and increasing its exports.

- More government intervention in market prices, particularly in urban real estate market and rental accommodation.
