We believe in energy independence. We support an “all of the above” approach that encourages the responsible production of nuclear power, clean coal, solar, wind, geothermal, hydro-power, as well as drilling for oil and natural gas in an environmentally responsible way. We oppose so-called cap and trade legislation that would impose a national energy tax on families and small business that would kill jobs and raise utility prices. It is essential that Canada reconstruct its security strategy in order to integrate energy policy in its foreign policy approach to third countries with the aim of building a strategic external policy with key partner countries. It has to enhance and develop an approach to climate and energy policy that will increase the nation’s energy security, including access to natural resources and raw materials.
Mobility within Canada and immigration from outside of Canada are realities that have enriched our nation for decades. The Canadian economy is interested in attracting highly qualified employees from all over the world, but immigration should not be promoted as the sole answer to demographic challenges. It will always be necessary to provide asylum for people who are persecuted. Immigrants and refugees must be treated on the basis of respect for human rights. It is imperative to address the results of illegal immigration and lack of integration, particularly with the emergence of parallel societies of immigrants in which the core values enshrined in our constitutions are disregarded, such as individual freedoms and the equality of men and women before the law. Human rights, freedom and tolerance must be respected within any cultural or religious community in Canada.
Increased irregular migration, illicit arms, drug trade and human trafficking, as well as international terrorism are challenges of the globalised world. Canada needs to protect its borders and find a balance between minimizing security threats and maximizing ease and convenience for travelers. Canada is a nation of freedom, justice, security, safety and peace, and needs clear structures in support and protection of basis and fundamental individual civil rights and human rights. Strengthening external border security by enhancing the military is an urgent necessity. We must also effectively cooperate with external countries’ border security authorities, especially countries that are identified as a source or transit route of irregular migration.
Markets must work as freely as possible and unfair practices and protectionist measures against free competition and free trade need to be abolished. Canada needs a steady, coherent, ambitious, growth-oriented and long-term economic and financial perspective. Labor mobility and job creation are of high importance in this context. Small and Medium Sized businesses as well as large businesses are the backbone of our Social Market Economy because their job-creating capacity is the biggest contributor to the Canadian labor market and the national economy. Economic policies should lead to stable and sustainable public finances, sound fiscal policy, tax reform, and should consist of demands on surplus, demands on a balanced budget, reducing public debt to less than 60% of GDP, more free trade, competition and continuous economic reform within Canada and abroad.
The Party’s ideology combines freedom with responsibility and democracy. Our basic and fundamental values are centered on education, fiscal balance, healthcare reform, employment, tolerance, youth leadership, fairness, gender equality, indigenous inclusiveness; rewarding and caring, private business, civil and corporate society. The party also values multiculturalism and diversity. Our political mission has been shaped by ideas of social reform and social justice which have all contributed to the current ideology.The party's Women's agenda also works to strongly bring women together and focuses on improving gender equality in Canada and around the world. It believes that women and men must have the same opportunities and rights to come to life, grow up, receive education, and participate freely in public and global affairs.
In terms of historical political development; inconsistency between institutional governmental system, the people civil societies has resulted in a situation of anomie that nationalists and nationalism seek to resolve, correct, change, and reform for the purpose of the well-being and greater good of the people within the nation in which they live and abide. Our Party is the only Party in Canada which main platform is established on the principles of individual freedom, social responsibility, equality, social justice, economic opportunity for everyone, humane principles; people-caring through civil rights and human rights. The party is strongly and amazingly continues to gain a significant amount of national and international support as it continues to achieve its political mission.
The emergence of a Popular Nationalism Political Movement is taking place in Canada through the National Coalition Party of Canada (NCPC). There are two main perspectives on the origins and basis of nationalism. One is the primordial perspective that describes nationalism as a reflection of the ancient belief perceived by evolutionary tendency of humans and citizens to organize into distinct groupings. The other is the modernist perspective that describes nationalism as a recent political phenomenon that requires the structural conditions of modern society and sustainable government reform through the democratic political process.
It will ensure up or down votes in Parliament on any new trade agreements, without meddling by special interests. A NCPC Prime Minister will complete negotiations for a Trans-Pacific and Trans-Continental Partnership to open rapidly developing Asian markets to Canadian products. Beyond that, we envision a worldwide multilateral agreement among nations committed to the principles of open markets, in which free trade will truly be fir trade open for all.

The orca spirit animal is powerful and intelligent, and it can survive even the harshest climates. The meaning of the orca also highlights the importance of family. The orca spirit animal reminds you that family should be your constant, and you should work hard to have something that you can call your family when you have none. The orca symbolism also speaks about security and stability when it comes to love and relationships. Because orcas are known to mate for life, you are also being encouraged to nurture your relationships and cultivate love, peace, and happiness.
Health care spending in Canada reached $160 billion, or 10.6% of GDP, in 2007 and $171.9 billion in 2008, or $5,170 per person. There is considerable variation across the provinces/territories as to the extent to which such costs as outpatient prescription drugs, physical therapy, long-term care, home care, dental care and even ambulance services are covered. We support common-sense public health care reforms that will lower costs, ensure quality health care; an all inclusive Health Care based on Prevention and Integrative Medicine and less dependency on crisis medicine, medications and surgery. This will reduce our health care costs and make us the leading nation in preventive medicine. This is the medicine of the future where we can reward people to become healthier and follow proper balanced life style, exercise and taking full responsibility for healthy living. This is a timely event since most Canadians do favor the focus on prevention instead of intervention and which will result in a more cost effective health care system by encouraging all health care professionals including medical doctors, integrative doctors, natural doctors, nurses, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nutritionists, dietitians and other allied professionals to get paid only when their client becomes healthy and not to push medications on them for life. By 2020 we will have a demographic shift that will require the focus on preventing diabetes, hypertension and obesity to avoid bankrupting our current health care system that will fail to cope with the ageing of the population.
We are committed and dedicated to defending and advancing the equality rights of people with disabilities in Canada. We believe that individuals with disabilities should live with dignity and participate fully in our communities. We pledge to work with all sectors and the disability communities on law reform and policy initiatives and community development. We support the creation of a multidisciplinary committee forum of disability experts and several organizations both governmental and non-governmental in order to facilitate the mainstreaming of disability issues in all relevant policy areas. This work is particularly appropriate in the light of the challenges faced by contemporary society in its efforts to promote inclusion and participation for all. Efforts must be made to create an environment where people with disabilities are encouraged and are able to participate in politics at local, regional, national and international levels.
The federal government has a role in housing by enforcing non-discriminatory laws and assisting low-income families and the elderly with safe and adequate shelter, especially through the use of housing vouchers. Home ownership is an important goal, but public policy must be balanced to reflect the needs of Canadians who choose to rent. A comprehensive housing policy should address the demand for apartments and multi-family housing. Any assistance should be subject to stringent oversight to ensure that funds are spent wisely. Home ownership expands personal liberty, builds communities, and helps Canadians create wealth. The new NCPC“ Canadian Dream” is not a stale slogan. It is the lived reality that expresses the aspirations of all our people. It means a decent place to live, a safe place to raise kids, a welcoming place to retire. It bespeaks the quiet pride of those who work hard to shelter their family and, in the process, create caring neighborhoods. Home ownership is best fostered by a growing economy with low interest rates, as well as prudent regulation, financial education, and targeted assistance to responsible borrowers.
Canadian businesses are the backbone our economy, employing millions of workers. Businesses create the vast majority of jobs. Businesses are the leaders in the world’s advances in technology and innovation, and we pledge to strengthen that role and foster small, medium and large business entrepreneurship. While businesses have significantly contributed to the nation’s economic growth, our past governments has failed to meet its small business goals year after year and failed to overcome burdensome regulatory, contracting, and capital barriers which in turn impedes their growth. We will reform the tax code to allow businesses to generate enough capital to grow and create jobs for our families, friends and neighbors all across Canada. We will encourage investments in small businesses. We will create an environment where adequate financing and credit are available to spur manufacturing and expansion. We will serve as aggressive advocates for businesses overall.
The best jobs program is economic growth. We do not offer yet another made-in-Ottawa package of subsidies and spending to create temporary or artificial jobs. We want much more than that. We want a roaring job market to match a roaring economy. Instead, what previous parties and governments have given Canadians is years of unemployment above normal. NCPC will pursue free market policies that are the surest way to boost employment and create job growth and economic prosperity for all. In all the sections that follow, as well as elsewhere in this platform, we explain what must be done to achieve that goal. The tax system must be simplified. Government spending and regulation must be reined in. Canadian companies must be more competitive in the domestic and world market, and we must be aggressive in promoting Canadian products domestically and abroad and securing open markets for them. A federal-provincial-private partnership must invest in the nation’s infrastructure such as roads, bridges, airports, ports, and water systems, among others. Federal Work training programs have to be overhauled and made relevant for the workplace of the twenty-first century.
We believe that maintaining a world-class system of primary, secondary, post-secondary and higher education with high standards in which all students can reach their potential is critically and vitally important to Canada’s socio-economic future. We believe parents should be empowered to send their children to the school of their choice. Our country’s system of higher education, public and private, secular and religious, large and small institutions is unique for its excellence, its diversity, and its accessibility. Learning is a safeguard of liberty. Post-secondary education not only increases the earnings of individuals but advances economic development. We must ensure that our higher education system meet the needs of the 21st century student and economy and remain innovative and accessible.
The National Coalition Party of Canada (NCPC) is the only Party in Canada which main platform is established on the core and fundamental principles of individual freedom, social responsibility, equality before the law, civil rights values, human rights standards, children and youth well-being, gender equality, social justice, economic opportunity for everyone and the rule of law. My desire, dream, hope and vision to continue to build up our party so it will become the largest party in Canada and in Parliamentary Government. To also be open to everyone who reside in Canada; to engage everyone to be active in society, to stand up for things that are important to them, to talk about them, and to work to change them for the betterment of our action.
We are in favor of the Social Market Economy because economic development, based on everyone’s contributions, cannot foster wellbeing and peace unless its fruits are shared with the aim of improving the living conditions of each person. It is important to safeguard competition between market forces as well as to promote solidarity and social justice. Subsidiarity expresses itself not only vertically in the political system but also horizontally in society, based on the premise that society can be constructed in freedom. The NCPC encourages a vibrant civil society through the activities of NGOs and the creation of associations. The NCPC should foster direct relations with associations of producers, consumers, trade unions, economic chambers and other socio-economic and societal actors. Family is irreplaceable as the core institution where love, charity, sympathy and human solidarity are cherished and instilled, thereby uniting different generations. It is the place where parents and children take responsibility and practice solidarity for each other. Strong families are also a precondition for better demographic development. We emphasize the need to recognize the work of parents as educators within the framework of social policies. We also believe that fiscal policies should support families and solidarity between generations.
Canada is well known around the world for its high quality agricultural products which are the basis of our gastronomic heritage, and this quality needs to be maintained. Strict standards are required to be set for production of safe and healthy food and to promote organic products even further. Agricultural Policy will have to be further reformed to foster a sustainable model of farming, taking into account food scarcities as a consequence of population growth and climate change as well as the economic role of the countryside. This reform should take into account the new and sharply increasing global need for agricultural products, a substantial change in nutritional patterns and the use of bio-fuels. At the same time, we have to take into account the decreasing capacity of agricultural production in some areas outside of Canada because of climate change and the scarcity of water, and therefore the continuous development and adaptation of Canada’s agricultural capacities should be facilitated.
The fair and proper administration of laws conforming to the natural law that all persons, irrespective of ethnic origin, gender, possessions, race, religion, etc., are to be treated equally and without prejudice. The personification of justice balancing the scales dates to the Goddess Maat, of ancient Egypt. The Hellenic deities Themis and Dike were later goddesses of justice. Themis was the embodiment of divine order, law, and custom, in her aspect as the personification of the divine rightness of law.
There's been a lot of talk about Fiscal Balance, but really, what is it all about? The fiscal balance is the difference between government revenues and expenditures. A fiscal deficit occurs when, in a given fiscal year, a government spends more than it receives in revenues. On the other hand, a government will run a surplus when revenues exceed expenditures. Consecutive large fiscal deficits in Canada are strongly detrimental to the sustainability and stability of public finances as they are financed by additional debt. When the level of outstanding debt is high, the cost of servicing that debt, both in absolute interest payments and in higher interest rates, pushes a country further into deficit, thereby hindering fiscal sustainability, economic stability and growth. Governments can reduce future debt servicing costs by improving the primary balance, which equals the fiscal balance net of interest payments.
We need to call on our politicians and public officials to be accountable for their actions. How can we trust them if we don’t know what they’re doing? We must demand that they put in place regulations which will force them to act openly. Then corruption can’t hide. And our trust in the political and electoral processes will improve. When party leaders act transparently, showing us clearly what they do, we can make informed choices when we vote. And we can hold them to account once elected. The NCPC supports the creation of a National Integrity Commission (NIC) which main objectives are to evaluate government operations, both in terms of their internal corruption risks and their contribution to fighting corruption in society at large. When all the pillars in a National Integrity System are functioning well, corruption remains in check. If some or all of the pillars wobble, these weaknesses can allow corruption to thrive and damage a society. A National Integrity System assessment examines both the formal framework of each pillar and the actual government institutional practice. The analysis highlights discrepancies between the formal provisions and reality on the ground, making it clear where there is room for improvement.
The greatest asset of the Canadian economy is the hard-working Canadians. The high rates of unemployment over the past years disastrously high among youth, minorities, and veterans have thus been a tragic waste of energy, human resources and ideas, compounded by the waste of billions in stimulus funds with no payoff in jobs. Nothing matters more than getting the Canadian people back to work. In addition to cutting spending, keeping sound tax policy, we must replace outdated policies and ineffectual training programs with a plan to develop a twenty-first century workforce to make the most of our country’s human capital. The NCPC will take aggressive action to close the retirement gap in Canada. We shall commission Clear Path Analysis to carry out qualitative research to create new retirement policies and reform existing programs into the future of our pension system aiming to achieve a more balanced retirement plan by strengthening funded pensions. People’s retirement savings are a convenient source of revenue for governments and we don’t want to reduce spending or make privatizations.
Taxes, by their very nature, reduce a citizen’s freedom. Their proper role in a free society should be to fund services that are essential and authorized by the Constitution, such as national security, and the care of those who cannot care for themselves. We reject the use of taxation to redistribute income, fund unnecessary or ineffective programs, or foster the crony capitalism that corrupts politicians and government representatives. Our goal is a tax system that is simple, transparent, flatter and fair. In contrast, the current tax code is like a patchwork quilt, stitched together over time from mismatched pieces, and is beyond the comprehension of the average citizen. A reformed code should promote simplicity and coherence, savings and innovation, increase Canadian competitiveness, and recognize the burdens on families with children.
The celestial spheres, or celestial orbs, were the fundamental entities of the cosmological models developed by Plato, Eudoxus, Aristotle, Ptolemy, Copernicus, and others. In these celestial models, the apparent motions of the fixed stars and planets are accounted for by treating them as embedded in rotating spheres made of an aetherial, transparent fifth element (quintessence), like jewels set in orbs. Some late medieval figures noted that the celestial spheres' physical order was inverse to their order on the spiritual plane, where God was at the center and the Earth at the periphery. Near the beginning of the fourteenth century Dante, in the Paradiso of his Divine Comedy, described God as a light at the center of the cosmos.
A Social Market Economy has to be based on the principle of environmental sustainability; that implies an ever greater attention to renewable energy sources, phasing out unsustainable energy production, energy efficiency, the preservation of biodiversity and the conservation and regeneration of natural resources such as water, air and land. It also means that economic growth should support those factors which increase the citizens’ quality of life. Canada possesses significant negotiating experience and power when speaking with one voice and technological know-how, and it should continue its leading role in combating climate change and global warming, as well as in coping with their effects. Increasing natural disasters around the world, as well as the rise in gas and oil prices, show the need for a rapid and courageous move toward the most modern and efficient technologies.
The NCPC is involved in shaping the rules and norms of the new international system. A globalized world requires global governance, and strengthening international organizations is imperative, in particular with regard to the United Nations (UN), IMF and WTO. Flexible institutions such as the G20 will grow in importance, highlighting the increased weight of emerging economies in Asia, Caribbean, the Arab Nations, the Americas and Africa. Strengthening the Common Foreign and Security Policy as well as the Security and Defense Policy will be crucial for the further development of Canada. The NCPC has to remain vigilant and strengthen its efforts in the non-proliferation of weapons of mass-destruction, terrorism, and organized crime as well as regional conflicts.
International trade and foreign direct investment is crucial for our economy. It means more Canadian jobs, higher wages, and a better standard of living. Every $1 billion in additional Canadian exports means another 5,000 or 10,000 jobs here at home. Thus, NCPC Leader and Prime Minister will insist on full parity in trade with other nations and stand ready to combat commercial disparities. Victimized private firms will be encouraged to raise claims in both Canadian courts and at the World Trade Organization. Judicial measures will be imposed on foreign firms that misappropriate Canadian technology and intellectual property. Because Canadian workers have shown that, on a truly level playing field, they can surpass the competition in international trade, we call for the restoration of Trade Promotion Authority.
