SEVEN PILLARS FOR BRINGING PROSPERITY TO CANADA
The Progressive Canadian Party has seven visions for Canada. It is part of our Prosperity Canada Programme.
It is our individual duty as progressive-conservatives, as members and supporters of the PC Party to communicate to our fellow citizens what we stand for and why their vote is so vital for the future.
1) FACILITATING POST SECONDARY EDUCATION
We believe knowledge in the modern world is paramount.
Working with the provinces the PC Party will ensure affordable post-secondary education is available to all Canadians in the belief that education is key to prosperity in Canada and for all Canadians in the future. Progressive Canadians believe that the ideal of tuition free education extended to Canadians to allow them to complete their education at the university, college or trade school level is a worthy objective.
Why should we assume after grade 12 our citizens should pay to be educated? Subject to maintaining satisfactory grades each Canadian should be entitled as a right to 16 years of free education not 12.
2) REALIZING GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES
In the world of to-day Canada must identify our growth opportunities throughout the Commonwealth of Nations.
While our main trading partner, the U.S.A. has overconsumed the bulk of the nations in the Commonwealth are underdeveloped.
We have an opportunity to extend our trading, investment and services to our cousins in these lands who want to increase their prosperity.
3) HARNESSING RENEWABLE RESOURCES
There is a growing awareness that the worlds present energy resources are finite.
This is the opportune time to fiscally forge what is needed in the form of renewable energy infrastructures.
With the second largest land mass in the world Canada can and should become a leading producer, exporter and consumer of wind, solar, thermal and tidal renewable energy.
4) MEETING DIFFERING NEEDS
A strong united Canada is fundamental but within our country there are diverse communities that require differing approaches to realize their economic potentials.
One example is Hamilton, an urban community which has had heavy industry as its base. The city is in transition. We believe its future could include restructuring of their industry . . . of their factories . . . into the production of renewable energy infrastructure products which are in short supply throughout the world.
5) SERVING THE WORLD
Canada spanning east and west and north gives us the opportunity to revitalize Atlantic Canada so that in world trade it can become the hub for Eastern North America including the U.S.A.'s Atlantic coast areas..
Likewise on the Pacific Coast British Columbia can become a gateway for Asian world trade into North America.
Hudson's Bay and our Arctic areas are begging to serve the world with the export of more oil, natural gas and diamonds. Working with our Arctic citizens we can facilitate that.
6) ALLYING FOR PEACE AND STABILITY
Rather than repeat the failures of foreign policy in Afghanistan, the graveyard of empires, and in Iraq where a decade ago the "coalition of the willing" created the conditions for the rise of ISL, we should reach out to our Commonwealth cousins to work together as a coherent foreign policy and economic pillar of strength and good will in the world.
7) BRINGING NEW HOPE
Canada has been a major contributor to relieving the plight of millions of the world's citizens who live in some of the poorest areas on earth. We have never contributed, however, to the full extent of our commitment to the world, namely .07% of our annual Gross Domestic Product per year.
It is possible through public and private co-operation to bring new hope to our fellow Commonwealth and Francophony citizens and in doing so meet our promise.
There is a particular opportunity in this area to work with South Africa and other Commonwealth and Francophony nations to bring new hope to the citizens of their continent.

The PC Party, the Progressive Canadian Party, exists as a registered national political party.
Our aim for it is to fill "the space on the political spectrum, where most Canadians are".
Presently there is a void to be filled, that of presenting Canadians positive directions offering them and theirs a better future.
"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."
