The Reform Commitment to build a New and Better Canada....
We affirm our commitment to Canada as one nation, united as a democratic
federation of equal provinces (each with jurisdiction for culture and language
policy), founded on the principle of the equality of all its citizens, accepting of its
social responsibilities, distinguished by governments that live within their means,
supported by a strong and viable economy, protected by an effective and accountable criminal
justice system, sheltered by affordable social programs, sustained through the conservation of
our environment, enriched by a respect for our cultural diversity and made strong through peaceful
and productive relations with the peoples of the world.
We extend a special welcome to visitors to this page who would like to help bring
about the Reform Vision of a New and Better Canada. We would particularly like you
to examine the Reform Party's Principles and Policies. In print form, these are
contained in our Blue Book.
All our Principles and Policies have been developed through a democratic process
which starts with individual members at the Constituency level and culminates in
approval by elected delegates at our biennial National Assemblies. This is a truly
grass roots approach to policy development. It is one in which each Reformer
has an opportunity to participate -- not one that is manipulated by any special
interest group or "backroom boys".
If you like what you see here, please contact us or better still, complete and
send us a membership application form. Together, we can form a strong and loyal
political team dedicated to the building of a great New Canada.
A warm welcome to the constituents of Simcoe Centre, and other interested Canadians. The Riding Association has put together an excellent introduction to the Reform Party, its personalities, principles and policies.
Iím excited to be part of one of the largest advances in technology and communications we have known in our lifetimes. The potential for the Internet to revolutionize work and society is enormous. No longer does one have to wait days or weeks for information. Itís all right here at our fingertips. More and more Canadians will be able to work and shop from home, students will research their homework, and additional leisure activities will become available.
One of the most important uses I foresee is the ability of public officials to receive timely and accurate information from voters on the issues they face. We can find out what is important directly from the source, avoid the filter of the media and give the best representation possible to Canadians.
The possibility exists that referenda and even elections may one day be a reality over the Net. Democracy has taken a real step forwards and I commend all those who use the Net to improve our system of government.
Please use this site to keep me informed of your concerns directly. I look forward to hearing from you. You can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free also to visit my home page.

The annual membership fee to join the Reform Party is $10.00 (includes GST). You may wish to consider joining
for three or five years, as this will help reduce the administrative costs involved in annual
renewals. Please note that, as the Reform Party relies on grassroots (not big business) support,
any contribution you might choose to make will be most welcome. Contributions $10.00 and over are tax deductable.
