What is a Liberal and why Vote Liberal?

With an election call likely in the coming months or next year, I would like to respond to questions raised with respect to the Conservative Government’s performance; as well as to the question “why vote Liberal?”.

1. Liberals are fiscally responsible, and keep their word; e.g. they said they would and cut the huge deficit inherited in 1993, and were the only G-8 country to post balanced budgets in their last 9 years in office.

2. Liberals strive for a fair and sustainable balance between individual interest and the best interests of all Canadians. The current government does not see this as a priority.

3. A Liberal Government will:

• work for a vibrant and sustainable economy and sustainable environment,

• maintain universality in health care and education; enhance literacy and skills development, and re-establish a proper child development program,

• maintain transparency and responsible accountability, including reparation for victims of the Income Trust fiasco generated by the government last November, and

• return to Canada’s international development and support role as soon as we complete our commitment in Afghanistan in February 2009.

Respectfully submitted,

Michael Cormican, Liberal Candidate, Lethbridge Riding September 10, 2007
