P 10.1 United Nations Security Council

Given our party’s name, OPC’s support of online voting would seem to be a given.

P 9.2 Crowd Sourcing the Federal Budget

P 9.1 Senate Reform Revisited

Making senators unaffiliated with any party is a step in the right direction, and Trudeau claims he has more up his sleeve to be revealed in the coming months.

P 8.3 Teaching as an Essential Service
