Today governments do many things, but Liberals believe the job of the Prime Minister

really comes down to one thing – bringing Canadians together.

Liberal governments always focus on what Canadians have in common, and what

we can accomplish as one country.

That kind of leadership is needed again. More than ever, we need to bridge the gaps

that divide us, and welcome all contributions to the ongoing work of building stron-

ger communities and a better country.

Canada is not a small or selfish country. It’s a bilingual country, with a multicultural

and creative people, proud of their heritage, their communities, provinces, cities,

and cultures. We draw strength from our diversity. We expect our leaders to reflect

the best in us, and to build on it.

Canadians cherish equality – equality of individuals, of women and men, Aboriginal

and non-Aboriginal people, of North and South, rural and urban, and people with dis-

abilities and their fellow citizens. Equality is the foundation of our Canadian Charter

of Rights and Freedoms. Where we find gaps between the ideal and practical reality,

we work together to narrow them. We’re all in it together.

Our democratic institutions have served us well, and we expect our representa-

tives to respect them. Canadian federalism has evolved with changing realities, and

helped us reconcile valued identities with common purposes. While preserving

what’s best in our institutions, we have to be open to change, so they continue to

serve us well in a rapidly changing world.
