Whither Canada?
 Rolf Auer, 4 November 2013 Two very important links: (i) Proposed Constitutional resolutions: http://www.cbc.ca/newsblogs/politics/inside-politics-blog/2013/11/cpc13-day-3---its-plenary-time-part-1---constitutional-resolutions.html (ii) Proposed policy resolutions: http://www.cbc.ca/newsblogs/politics/inside-politics-blog/2013/11/cpc13-day-3---its-plenary-time-part-2---policy-resolutions.html Two pdfs can be downloaded by following the preceeding links. Because (i) is internal to the Conservative Party of Canada, whereas (ii) affects all Canadians, I shall work with (ii). This is divided into three sections. (1
) Canada’s Social Fabric
 (Page 6) (2) Role of Government, Taxation, and Crime (Page 15) (3) Economic Development (Page 20) THIS IS THE MOST INTERESTING SECTION AT THE END: MORE LINKS TO NEWS ABOUT THESE POLICY RESOLUTIONS (1)
Canada’s Social Fabric
 1-01-134 (NEW) p.8 Re Medical Isotopes: The CPC supports the production of medical isotopes. My interpretation: none. 1-02-250 (MODIFICATION) p.9 Re Recognition of International Credentials: -
“work with recognized
 professional bodies to prequalify internationally trained individuals for
certain occupations as part of the immigration process”
“We support developing a better system to identify Canada’s occupations facing current labour
market shortages and make the immigration system more flexible to ensure these needs can be
My interpretation: appears to stress having immigrants fill current labour market shortages.
1-03-222 (MODIFICATION) p.10 Re Agricultural Principles: -
“We must seek to be the world’s best when it comes to the safety of our food supply. We will
encourage measures to require clear and accurate labeling of ingredients and country(ies) of
origin, and more rigorous safety testing of imported food products.”
 My interpretation: appears to anticipate Canadians wanting GMOs explicitly labeled. 1-04-210 (MODIFICATION) p.12 Re Internet Connectivity: -
“The CPC will protect privacy and fair access for all Canadians in all legislation and policy
endeavours. The CPC does not support online censorship nor regulation of content within the limits per 
mitted by the Criminal Code”
 My interpretation: NSA (CSEC) interference with
and commercialization of (such as pay-per-click)
the internet appears to be anticipated. 1-05-254 (MINOR MODIFICATION) p.13 Re Foreign Affairs Principles: -
“We believe that Canada’s international relations, trade and foreign aid policies should advance the country’s economic interests while promoting human rights, democracy, and individual freedom.”
 My interpretation: I suppose promoting other types of government (or lack of), i.e. anarchosyndicalism, is out of the question. I also notice that economic interests come before human rights, democracy, and individual freedom. Long live capitalist democracy! 1-06-015 (NEW) p.14 Re Rights of Workers: -
allow Government to “work with unions and employers” to develop— 
and encourage use of 
dispute mechanisms to avoid or minimize disruption of services to Canadians -
oblige unions to utilize “full, transparent annual financial reporting”
 -Fed Gov to legislate that Fed Pub Service unions and unions in federally regulated industries explicitly detail political donations, donations to media organizations and to political activism and campaigns My interpretation: makes it much more difficult for unions
especially Fed Gov unions
to exist.
“The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.”—
