    Buried in Budget 2016 was a note that the Liberals plan to pursue "asset recycling” which sounds harmless and even ecological until you scratch the surface. “Asset recycling” is just a new word for privatization. This does not pull away from the same old failed Conservative policies, as was promised.

    “The TPP privileges multinational corporations and foreign investors while failing to protect the public interest and promote inclusive economic growth here at home. A new report from the C.D. Howe Institute adds fuel to the fire, suggesting that the TPP will create little to no economic growth or economic welfare in Canada.”

    First described as a “done deal” signed by the Conservatives, this document shows that the Foreign Affairs Minister quietly approved the Saudi Arms deal himself. Canadians need to know who is responsible for saying “yes” to an arms deal that ignores human rights.

    In the last election, the Liberals criticized Conservatives for implementing tax policies that benefited the wealthiest Canadians above middle class families. But now, Finance Canada says the Liberal “middle class tax cut” actually benefits the rich. We expect more for middle class families that are struggling to get ahead.

    “I’m not just concerned about my own future, but my children’s future – I want to leave them a better Canada and a better world.” – Jed Sears from Toronto, Ontario Jed’s here in Edmonton because he thinks the next few years will be essential to the future of our party and “it’s important to talk about that – this is what our convention gives us the opportunity to do.” To Jed, a progressive Canada would help the less fortunate by distributing wealth evenly. He says that he doesn’t want to prioritize one issue over another, but he would put climate change and income equality at the top of his list. Fun fact: Jed was only 11 years old when he volunteered on Jen Hollett’s campaign. “I felt like I was part of something very special,” he says, “that’s why I’ve kept being so active, because of the inclusivity of that campaign.”

For Pauline, a progressive Canada is one that “puts fairness first and speaks with one voice.” She says that she’s looking to the party’s youth with hope and excitement. Fun fact: Pauline grew up in the UK and was a member of UK Labour before she came to Canada.

    “I want to see more protections for workers who don’t have stable employment – contract workers, freelance workers, artists, all deserve the same stability as those with full-time work.” – Joan Lillian Wilson from Toronto, Ontario Though she’s been an NDP supporter for years, Joan first got actively involved during last year’s federal election. Now, she wants to be part of helping the party move forward with positivity and purpose. For Joan, a progressive Canada is one where your background doesn’t effect the opportunities available to you. Her top issue: precarious employment. Fun fact: Joan is a graphic designer/photographer/activist/part-time/contract/volunteer – she’s also one of the funding members of The Urban Workers Project, which seeks to mobilize young professionals for better protection against precarious work.

She’s here to take it all in and focus on the issues: “all the attention on the leadership vote just feels like a media grab – we’re here to talk about policy.” Cherika says a progressive Canada would be a place where people come together to tackle the big issues, whether it’s climate change or pay equity. She says that this spirit of collaboration is what inspires young New Democrats. Fun fact: As Secretary for the Windsor-Tecumseh riding association, Cherika’s following in the footsteps of her mum, MP Cheryl Hardcastle. #yeg2016

He remembers his parents, Lila and Henry Schnee, going to the first CCF meetings on Sunday afternoons: “to go to these meetings, it was very progressive at the time.” For Merle, a progressive Canada includes strong action on climate change and focus on labour issues. Fun fact: Now retired, Merle was a fire-fighter who proudly served his community for many years.
