Even playing field: The Canadian government gives foreign producers every conceivable advantage over Canadians that wish to make or produce things in the country. We seek to even the playing field to give Canadian producers and labour an even chance to make things again.

Pushing the production of products that we consume offshore through production regulation does not absolve our responsibility for the harm of our consumption.

Community based bureaucracy: The bureaucracy belongs to the people. A broad section of the population should have access to the lucrative government employment. We propose that national institutions be spread across the nation and that the communities that they are in be an integral part of their operations. Each department would have a permanent committee in the House and the MP from the city in which the department is located would be a member of the committee.
