T h e M o d e r n C o n s e r v a t i v e P e o p l e s P a r t y i s r i g h t o f c e n t e r, b e t w e e n
moderate and fascism, where Conser vatives ideas and values are

well as their potential to succeed on their own.

Aspects of Individualism
Individual Rights and Freedoms

Individual rights are the things that the gover nment is entitled
to give the people, and individual freedoms are the abilities
p e o p l e h a v e u n d e r t h e r u l e o f t h e l a w.

Our par ty believes in individual rights such as: democratic


r i g h t s, t h e r i g h t t o u s e E n gl i s h o r F r e n ch i n a ny d e b a t e s o r ot h e r
precedings of Parliament, mobility rights, legal rights, equality
rights, and minor it y-lang uage edu cation r ights.

Our par ty believes in individual freedoms such as: freedom of


s p e e ch a n d a s s o c i a t i o n , f r e e d o m t o p r a c t i c e a ny r e l i g i o n o r n o
religion at all, the freedom of the media to print and broadcast
n e w s t h a t i s j u s t i fi a b l e b y l a w .
Self-Interest

Self-interest is the ability of an individual to do what they want


according to their own advantage.

In a laissez-faire economy , individuals can pursue the market in

w h i ch eve r way th ey d e s i r e .
Individuals are free to spend their own ear nings on whatever they
please.
Co mpetition

Competition occurs between businesses when they are free to


h a n d l e t h e i r o w n a ff a i r s

Mode r n Conser vative People s Par t y

Co mpetition will occur in a free-market economy because

businesses operate better without government inter vention.


T h e c u s t o m e r s h a v e t h e b u y i n g p o w e r, s o c o m p a n i e s m u s t c o m p e t e

with one another by impr oving products and ser vices, in order to
gain the suppor t of consumers. This competition among businesses
drives the supply and demand cycle, as the supply of the
p r o d u c t s i s d e p e n d e n t u p o n t h e d e m a n d o f t h e c u s t o m e r.

Economic Freedom

E c o n o m i c f r e e d o m c a n b e d e fi n e d a s t h e f r e e d o m f o r p e o p l e t o
choose how to produce, sell, and use your own resources. It is
the key to g reater oppor tunity and an improved quality of

life.
Our par ty believes in economic freedom as it is not the
gover nments right to decide what people do with their personal
wealth. Cer tain ser vices that people decide are necessar y for
the gover nment to provide, will be covered by taxes, but other
e c o n o m i c a ff a i r s w i l l l i e w i t h t h e i n d i v i d u a l .
Rule of Law

Rule of law is the re striction of the arbitrar y exercise of power

b y s u b o r d i n a t i n g i t t o w e l l - d e fi n e d a n d e s t a b l i s h e d l a w s .
The laws create d by the gove r nment should never impen d on the
rights of the individual, and are to be followed by ever yone,

i n c l u d i n g t h o s e i n p o w e r.

Language

Our par ty does not believe in forcing individuals to become

Media

Media is an essential aspect of di stributing impor tant news and


events that occur in society; therefore our par ty believes that it is
each individuals right to use the media to their advantage. If it is
used respectively and does not infringe upon the rights of others,
i t d o e s n o t a ff e c t o u r p a r t y s b e l i e f s .
Relationship to Land

T h e l a n d i s s a c r e d t o m a ny c ul t u r e s , i n c l u d i n g t h e F i r st Nat i o n s
People, who have religious ties to the land. Our par ty respects
this and believes in allowing cer tain areas of land to be devoted
to cultures.
E nvironment

Mode r n Conser vative People s Par t y

The environment is an extremely valuable and impor tant resource;


t h e r e f o r e i t m u s t b e p r o t e c t e d . T h e e n v i r o n m e n t o ff e r s p r o s p e r i t y

n o t d i r e c t l y a ff e c t o u r b e l i e f s . H o w e v e r , w e d o b e l i e v e t h a t
individuals have the freedom of religion and the right to pursue
these practices.
Characteristics of Ideology
Beliefs About Human Nature

We b e l i e ve t h a t h u m a n s a r e n a t u r a l ly g o o d , i n t e l l i g e n t , a n d
c a p a b l e o f m a k i n g t h e i r o w n d e c i s i o n s . We t r u s t t h e c i t i z e n s t o
not abuse their rights and freedoms so that the government does
n ot have to inter ve ne and place restrictions. R especting their
rights and freedoms will ensure that the people can remain as the
source of power behind the government.
Interpretations of History

Histor y is extremely impor tant as it helps us lear n from mistakes


in the past. It is a learning tool that helps to ensure the
gover nment will not become extremist and fail, as it has done so
in the past. The French Revolution proved that a gover nment that
does not respect individual rights would ultimately fail.

Beliefs About the Structure of Society

Mode r n Conser vative People s Par t y

Our par ty believes that the gover nment exists to maintain a safe
s o c i e t y, w h i l e n o t b e c o m i n g o v e r b e a r i n g o r a d i c t a t o r s h i p . W e

Vision for the Future

Our par ty ultimately wishes to establish a government where the

We s t r i ve t o c r e a t e a n e c o n o my t h a t i s r e s i l i e n t a n d d r i ve n by t h e

I n fl u e n c i n g P h i l o s o p h e r s
John Locke

John Locke was a philosopher who believed in individual rights,


b u t a l s o b e l i eve d th a t th e g ove r n m e n t m ay n e e d t o i n t e r fe r e a n d
place restrictions if the safety of the public is threatened. This
is something we ag ree with because there will be cer tain
situations where public protection is more impor tant than
i n d i v i d u a l f r e e d o m s . H o w e v e r, t h i s g o v e r n m e n t i n t e r v e n t i o n w i l l
be to protect the l i ves and proper ty of the peopl e. For exampl e, if
our countr y is ever threatened with acts of war or ter rorism, the
gover nment should be allowed to make temporar y changes to
protect its people.
John Stewart Mill

John Stewart Mill, who believed the gover nment should not be in
p o w e r i f i t i m p e d e s o n i n d i v i d u a l r i g h t s , i n fl u e n c e o u r p a r t y s
beliefs. This is because he believed that the only limitations that
should exist for an individual would be those that protect the
freedom of others.

Economics
The Moder n Conser vative People s Par ty is located on the right of the
economic spectrum.
E c o n o m i c I n fl u e n c e o f t h e I n d u s t r i a l R e v o l u t i o n

The Industrial Revolution was a period of time that drove people


to think for themselves and create a society focused more on the
i n d i v i d u a l . T h e I n d u s t r i a l R e v o l u t i o n i n fl u e n c e d o u r p a r t y s
beliefs in the four following ways.

Industrialization

As industrialization developed, capitalism became increasingly


present. With the growing popularity of capitalism, the idea of an
invisible hand to guide a capitalist state also became present.
Ca pitalism is the economic system favored by our par ty
Class System

The Industrial Revolution led to the development of social


classes. This period created job opportunities for those of the
lower and middle classes, as well as creating businesses for the
upper class to inve st in. This helped to shape our economic
ideology because it provides the chance for individuals to work for
themselves and inve st in their own pros per ity .
Role of the Government

The Industrial Revolution led to a reduction in gover nment


involvement , which is something that our par ty values. A freemarket system was adopted during the Industrial Revolution,

Mode r n Conser vative People s Par t y

12

leading to pr i va tely ow ned pro duction and a prosperous


economic movement.
Labo ur Uni o ns

Labour Unions were developed during the Industrial Revolution


t o e n s u r e t h a t w o r k e r s r i g h t s w e r e n o t b e i n g v i o l a t e d . C u r r e n t l y,
l a b o u r u n i o n s e n a b l e w o r k e r s t o n e g l e c t p a r t i c i p a t i o n . We d o
not support labour unions for this reason and also due to our
bel i ef and suppor t of Lai ssez- Fai re eco nomi cs.
I n fl u e n c i n g P h i l o s o p h e r s

Adam Smith, F r ied r ich Haye k , an d Milto n F r iedm an are the


p h i l o s o p h e r s t h a t h a v e i n fl u e n c e d o u r e c o n o m i c b e l i e f s . A l l t h r e e
o f t h e s e i n fl u e n t i a l p h i l o s o p h e r s h e l d t h e b e l i e f t h a t i n d i v i d u a l
self-interest in a free market economy would lead to a stronger
e c o n o m y, a n d t h e r e f o r e b e n e fi t e v e r y o n e , i n c l u d i n g t h e s t a t e .
Goods and Services

The MCPP believes that the wants of the consumer should


d i c t a t e w h i c h g o o d s a n d s e r v i c e s w i l l b e p r o d u c e d . We b e l i e v e t h a t
t h e c o m p e t i t i o n b e t w e e n b u s i n e s s e s w i l l l e a d t o a n e ffi c i e n t
production system. According to our beliefs, the individuals who
c a n a ff o r d t h e s e g o o d s a n d s e r v i c e s s h o u l d b e t h e o n e s t h a t t h e y
are distributed to.
Taxation of Individuals

The individual will cover most living costs in order to keep


collecti ve tax relatively low .

Ever yone will be taxed a standard 10% of their annual income, to

e n s u r e t h a t o n e i n d i v i d u a l i s n o t h e l d a b o v e a n o t h e r.
The small amount of collective tax will be put towards public
ed ucation and basic health car e that is available to all.

Taxation of Corporations

C o m p a n i e s a n d c o r p o r a t i o n s a r e t o p a y t a x e s b a s e d o n p r o fi t a n d

capital.
Businesses are the source of income for all individuals and
therefore will not be taxed a large amount in order to have more
money to spend on wages.
Income Inequality

Income inequality is a naturally occur ring aspect of a capitali st


state. Capitalism promotes healthy competition that sparks a
strong work ethic in individuals; therefore harder working

individuals will make a g reater income.


The government will not obviously inter vene, as the market will
work itself out with a prospe rous economy as a result.
Health Care

Our par ty believes in a two-tiered system where care is available


u n i v e r s a l l y, b u t i n d i v i d u a l s a r e a b l e t o p a y f o r m o r e i m m e d i a t e o r

further care.
To maintain the public health care system, regulations will be
placed upon the amount of time that doctors can spend with
p a t i e n t s i n t h e p r i v a t e s e c t o r.
Education

Our par ty strongly believes in the importance of education .


T h e r e f o r e a s i g n i fi c a n t a m o u n t o f t a x d o l l a r s w i l l b e p u t t o w a r d s
the goals of smaller class sizes, technology that enhances

worker s, however we also do not suppor t labour unions as they

Une mpl oym e nt I ns uranc e

Our par ty recognizes the fact that some people may need
assistance in order to sustain life for themselves, or perhaps their
c h i l d r e n . H o w e v e r, t a x d o l l a r s c o l l e c t e d f r o m h a r d w o r k i n g
individuals will not be put towards those who are not making an

doing something to rebuild their lives, the government will
provide assistance.
W e l f a r e B e n e fi t s

Those who cannot care for themselves will be provided with some
help from the government. Ever yone else must plan ahead of time
to ensure that they will be secure in the future.

Our party falls to the right on the political spectrum. Our party
f o c u s e s m a i n l y o n b e n e fi t i n g t h e i n d i v i d u a l .
Democracy in Canada
Consensus-Decision Making

This is a process where a group of individuals share ideas,


solutions and concer ns to reach a complete ag reement. Our par ty
does not view this as a viable option because the process is much
t o o l o n g , r e s u l t i n g i n w a s t e d t i m e . T h e r e a r e t o o m a n y d i ff e r i n g
opinions to reach an ag reement; therefore the only way this type
of decision-making can exist is in a dictatorship.
Direct Democracy

A direct democracy is a system where the people participate in
