Freedom of Expression: Protecting Canadians from Censorship and Discrimination
  • Restrict the definition of hate speech in the Criminal Code to expression which explicitly advocates the use of force against identifiable groups or persons based on protected criteria such as religion, race, ethnicity, sex, or sexual orientation.

  • Repeal any existing legislation or regulation curtailing free speech on the internet and prevent the reinstatement of section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act.

  • Repeal C-16 and M-103.

  • Ensure that Canadians can exercise their freedom of conscience to its fullest extent as it is intended under the Charter and are not discriminated against because of their moral convictions.

  • Withhold federal funding from any post-secondary institution shown to be violating the freedom of expression of its students or faculty.

Refugees: Ending Open Borders Policies and Prioritizing Persecuted Groups
  • Accept fewer resettled refugees (see also Immigration policy).

  • Take every measure necessary, in partnership with our American neighbours, to stop the flow of illegal migrants at the US-Canadian border.

  • Declare the whole border an official port of entry for the purposes of refugee claims to send back to the US anyone trying to enter Canada illegally.

  • Fence off the areas where illegal border jumping is prevalent, such as Roxham Road in Quebec.

  • Rely on private sponsorship instead of having the government pay for all the costs of resettling refugees in Canada.

  • Stop our reliance on the United Nations for refugee selection.

  • Give priority to refugees belonging to persecuted groups who have nowhere to go in neighbouring countries. For example: Christians, Yazidis, and members of other minority religions in majority Muslim countries; members of the Ahmadi community, and other Muslims in these countries who are persecuted because they reject political Islam and adhere to Western values; and members of sexual minorities.

  • Take Canada out of the UN’s Global Compact for Migration.

Immigration: Reducing Overall Levels and Prioritizing Skilled Immigrants
  • Substantially lower the total number of immigrants and refugees Canada accept every year, from 350,000 to between 100,000 and 150,000, depending on economic and other circumstances.

  • Reform the immigration point system and the related programs to accept a larger proportion of economic immigrants with the right skills.

  • Accept fewer resettled refugees (see Refugees policy) and limit the number of immigrants accepted under the family reunification program, including abolishing the program for parents and grand-parents.

  • Limit the number of temporary foreign workers and make sure that they fulfil temporary positions and do not compete unfairly with Canadian workers.

  • Change the law to make birth tourism illegal.

  • Ensure that every candidate for immigration undergoes a face-to-face interview and answers a series of specific questions to assess the extent to which they align with Canadian values and societal norms (see Canadian Identity policy).

  • Increase resources for CSIS, the RCMP and Canadian Immigration and Citizenship to do interviews and thorough background checks on all classes of immigrants.

Global Warming and Environment: Rejecting Alarmism and Focusing on Concrete Improvements
  • Withdraw from the Paris Accord and abandon unrealistic greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.

  • Stop sending billions of dollars to developing countries to help them reduce their emissions.

  • Abolish the Liberal government’s carbon tax and leave it to provincial governments to adopt programs to reduce emissions if they want to.

  • Abolish subsidies for green technology and let private players develop profitable and efficient alternatives.

  • Invest in adaptation strategies if problems arise as a result of any natural climate change.

  • Prioritize implementing practical solutions to make Canada’s air, water and soil cleaner, including bringing clean drinking water to remote First Nations communities.

Supply Management: Making Dairy, Poultry, and Eggs More Affordable
  • Create a free, open, and fair system that will save Canadians billions of dollars annually thanks to the lower prices they will pay for these products.

  • Phase out the supply management system over a number of years to allow farmers to adapt, and compensate them for the lost value of their quotas.

  • Allow Canada’s dairy, egg and poultry farmers to thrive and sell their products internationally.

Equalization: Fairness For All Provinces
  • Reduce the total amount of equalization payments to provinces, and make sure that only the provinces with the greatest needs benefit from it.

  • Establish a parliamentary committee to review and make recommendations on a new formula that will avoid the welfare trap and provide poorer provinces with the right incentives to adopt pro-growth economic policies and reduce their dependence on federal money.

  • Ensure that the new formula respects our Constitution, makes provincial governments more responsible for their policy decisions, and is fair for citizens of all provinces.

Veterans: Standing behind the men and women who sacrificed for our country
  • Recognize and respect the unique sacrifices of those who serve and have served in Canada’s Armed Forces.

  • Enshrine in legislation the country’s obligations to our veterans in a Military Covenant between the government and those who serve in the Armed Forces.

  • Reinstate the fair disability pension as previously provided for by the Pension Act. The pension will apply retroactively to 2006 and lump sum payments received since then will be treated as advance payments.

  • Instigate a line-by-line review of the New Veterans Charter (including the Enhanced New Veterans Charter Act of 2011), to determine which policies and programs should be retained, simplify the system and make it easier to navigate.

  • Reemphasize the legislative guarantee of the “Benefit of doubt” standard under the Pension Act.
