Oakville.com: What are the platform issues that you are addressing?
Max Khan: Restoring democracy, supporting families and strengthening our economy.
Most of our new campaign volunteers say they are most concerned about the way democracy has eroded under the Harper Conservatives. They want their government to respect Parliament and its watchdogs, improve access to information, focus on building consensus, and ensure a level playing field in elections.
The other two issues deal with concerns everyday people have about making ends meet while providing a future for themselves and their families.
The Liberal Party has a comprehensive plan to strengthen families – the Family Pack – without raising the GST or taxes paid by families and small businesses. We will not raise corporate taxes but we will not allow any more cuts in the rates paid by the top 5% largest and most profitable companies in Canada. This $5-6 billion a year in income (that was not included in the Harper budget) is what we will use to fund our platform. The rest of the money we need will come from ending wasteful spending on unnecessary jets, jails, partisan ads and gifts to Tory ridings.
