More and more of us are concerned that our children will not enjoy the same standard of living as we have. Canada is richer than it has ever been yet, yet we are told we can no longer afford it, and must cut back spending on the social services we all want and need. There is a serious disconnect between the unprecedented wealth produced by the Canadian economy and the increasing economic insecurity of Canadians. That's why we must take decisive action to build a sustainable economy that benefits all Canadians over the long-term.
The Green Party platform is a plan for all Canadians, for our democracy, our economy, our communities – our future. It is a plan for safe, happy, fulfilled and enriched lives. It is a plan to help those in need, to support small business and to grow local communities. It is a plan filled with optimism and conviction, not fear and the status quo. We hope it will inspire you to join us, and to vote Green on October 19.
