WHEREAS NDP has historic roots in the principles and values of the 'Social Gospel Movement' which was a major force in Canadian religious, social and political life from the 1890s through the 1930s and inspired the political action of CCF founders William Irvine and J.S. Woodsworth and NDP founder Tommy Douglas;


Quote:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the NDP form a faith, spirituality and social justice Caucus open to all regardless of faith or spiritual commitment that:
i) provides a forum for people grounded in faith and spirituality who are interested in social justice and the social democratic values of the NDP; and
ii) provides an avenue for networking with faith based NGO's civil society allies, partners and individual Canadians to comment on legislation and public policy from a faith perspective while bringing the NDP social democratic perspectives to these faith based NGO's, civil society allies, partners and individual Canadians.


Expect an alarmist Globe and Mail headline tomorrow...

Christians taking over the NDP

This one made me laugh:

Quote:
WHEREAS the office of the NDP Leader acknowledges all correspondence from members in exactly the same manner, namely, with a generic post card which says that our ideas are appreciated; and
WHEREAS such an acknowledgement gives no indication that anyone has actually paid any attention to those ideas,
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the generic postcards be destroyed, and that in the future, only real responses be sent to members.

Green Party Alliance?

Quote:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the New Democratic Party should actively explore and formally consider the advantages of merging with the Federal Green Party of Canada, and should request that all riding associations meet to discuss this option within 120 days of the close of this Convention and report their findings to the Federal Party; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that if this reporting process indicates that the Party members nd riding associations are open to the possibility of such a merger, the federal Party should initiate discussions with the Green Party of Canada to consider a merger of the two parties, possibly beginning with an agreement to work together in an electoral alliance or partnership in the next federal election.

WHEREAS the name "New Democratic Party" may seem outdated for a Party which has existed for more than 40 years; and

WHEREAS a large percentage of social democratic parties in Europe simply and explicitly bear the name "Social Democratic Party of...";
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the name of the NDP change to: the Social Democratic Party of Canada.

WHEREAS Statistics Canada recently reported that 10 percent of the population pay over 50
percent of income taxes; and
WHEREAS commentators and experts conclude from this that the wealthiest Canadians are
paying more than their share of taxes; and
WHEREAS the New Democratic Party is emphatically in favour of equitable treatment for all
Canadians, with respect to both taxes and incomes,
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the New Democratic Party pledge to support the highly
vocal element in society that anguish loud and long about the burden of taxes by advocating
the more equitable distribution of incomes so that all Canadians not only pay their share of
income tax, but have incomes which enable them to live in dignity while doing so.

WINNIPEG NORTH NDP


I sense an angry tone against wealthy Canadians.

Why don't they put that label on the forhead of newborn babies? That's the fate of those who are born. lol

Socialist don't believe in Equality and Multiculturalism. They believe in the mono-culture "white" Canada. Checkout the TTC's staff, it's a mix of Canadians from 1892.

Also on the government telling people how many hours to work. The eventuality of that policy is working every second day for 12 hours. That's what they do in Cuba.

Only halfway through part 2, and I am detecting a pattern.


Thanks, but that's actually a very sensible policy that Libertarian Conservatives and NDP have in common.

It's actually an unalienable right for consenting adults to exchange goods for sex.

Quote:
The Economy and the Roles of the State
WE ASSERT the principle whereby the economy exists to serve people, and not the reverse.
Our economic vision is one that includes full-employment, co-operation, sustainability and
democracy. The production and distribution of goods and services should target the
individual, social, and environmental needs, not only corporate profits.
While we recognize the advantages of a market economy, we consider that the State plays an
irreplaceable role in the rules and regulation of the market. It is particularly the case with the
control of great economic monopolies. Only the State can make sure public services, strategic
investment in some sectors, macroeconomic planning and balance, and fair redistribution of
riches are maintained.
In our vision, there is no contradiction between economic and social development, between
prosperity and solidarity, between efficiency and justice. On the contrary, these things
reinforce each other.
But the State can also contribute to shaping a different economy, based on the principle of
economic democracy. We intend to contribute to the development of an economy in which,
through various means, the communities, workers, investors and consumers will influence
economic leverage that affect their lives.

Quote:
Solidarity and Community
WE ASSERT that human beings are social beings and as such are asked to build the society �
and seek their happiness and self-realization � with others. The importance of the ideas of
solidarity and community is what differentiates us from neo-liberal and neo-conservative
ideologies.
We believe that fraternity and solidarity should be the pillars of both our civil and political
society. Goodwill towards others and commonality are the cornerstones of a good society.
This is particularly true of our solidarity with the poorest and marginalized of our world, locally,
nationally, and internationally.
Our conception of people�s freedom and equality is not synonymous with isolation; on the
contrary, the anchors in communities are essential to people�s development. As well, our
conception of citizenship is not based solely on individualism, but also on the good of
communities � including the local level � where people belong.
We are committed to creating a society where a marked sense of community gives
precedence to the health and welfare of all Canadians rather than short-term individual gains.294


Comrad!

Quote:
Equality
WE ASSERT that equality, based on the equal dignity of any human being, is a constitutive
principle of our vision of society. This principle implies not only equality before the law, but also
the equality of opportunities. And, in itself, the equality of opportunities requires a decrease of
socio-economic inequalities.
We believe that the best way to achieve greater socio-economic equality is through fair
access to reasonable income, (notably through work) to universal public services, (health,
quality education, affordable childcare) and to certain guaranteed social rights (including
housing)
. We want to build a society within which safety, security, health and welfare will be
guaranteed to all
.
We are committed to pursuing the creation of fair and equal distribution of riches and to
creating a society where all members compete according to their abilities and receive
according to their needs.

We target social justice for all, in a society that fosters diversity and does not tolerate
discrimination for reasons of race, nationality, creed, gender, language, physical or intellectual
capacity, sexual orientation or age.


The bold underlined statement is another way to say they want a LARGE death (estate) tax, so that everyone is born poor, gets free welfare and public education then we all compete against each other. Again, hello Cuba! Hello Canada returning to it's spot in the 3rd world, which we held only 100 years ago.

Quote:
Dignity and Freedom
WE ASSERT that the principles of human dignity and freedom constitute a basic right we
must maintain and expand. The respect of human beings, in all their diversity, implies the
expansion of their freedoms.
Freedom is a tool that allows individuals to pursue their goals and projects and, consequently,
to flourish socially, culturally, economically, and spiritually. Therefore, in our vision, freedom is
a tool towards accomplishment and liberation.
As freedom can only be exercised in a context within which various choices are available, we
believe we must be collectively responsible for ensuring that real and meaningful choices are
offered to the people.

Individual and social responsibility is also an essential element of true freedom. Contrary to
neo-liberal ideology, our conception of freedom is not synonymous with �every man for
himself� or �might is right�. The greatest freedom for all is impossible in a highly authoritarian
or non-egalitarian society. Therefore, we cannot envision freedom without equality and
solidarity.


This is a total bash on individual freedoms, see Comrad comment above. They say freedom then they say within a limited government approved choice list. Hello, airline food.

"The freedom to choose, untasty beef or overcooked veggies". Thanks NDP!
