I believe in the positive role that Canada can and should play on the international stage. As a member of the LGBT community I am pround that the Canadian government under the leadership of Paul Martin and Martin Cauchon have granted the right to marry to same-sex couples.
The Liberal Party offers a vision of Canadian success in the 21st century that reflects shared Canadian values. Values of fairness, tolerance and sharing. Ours is a vision in which all Canadians have an equal chance to realize their dreams and fulfill their unique potential. We believe Canada must have a strong national government that makes decisions based on the needs and aspirations of all Canadians. We have the plan that will make our vision a reality. That will keep Canada the best country in the world-now and in the future.
~ The Right Honourable Jean Chrétien, November 2000
I am a Liberal because of the party’s consistent support for equal rights for everyone regardless of race, religion, gender, wealth, sexual identity, language, or anything else that differentiates us. Thanks to the Liberal party these rights are enshrined in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. - Philip, Kitchener
I am a Liberal because I want consistency. I want a government that cares abut economic and international policy, while maintaining care for Canadians. I want a leader who cares about jobs just as much as the environment and who can balance industry with small business. I am a Liberal because a strong economy is the fuel of our nation and our workers should not be neglected. I want a sustainable Canada and that’s why I’m a Liberal.
