Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm going to be using the Wonk Edition map, but here is what I have so far:

Parties:

Conservative

Liberal

NDP

BQ

Green

Independent (led by André Arthur)

Issues:

Budget and Debt

Business Taxes

Childcare

Crime

Defence

Economy

Energy

Environment

Government

Gun Control

Healthcare

Immigration

Middle East

Personal Taxes

Provincial Powers

Quebec

Trade Policy

US Relations

//Budget and Debt

Deficit spending to stimulate our economy. Massive spending for new social programs.

Reduce the budget deficit through tax increases and defense cuts. Oppose any cuts to social programs.

Make government more efficient. Reduce budget deficit without hurting social programs or tax hikes.

Cut government spending to reduce the budget deficit. No tax increases. Balance the budget by 2014.

Make deep cuts to social programs, reduce government debt, and overhaul public sector.

@

//Business Tax

Restore the corporate tax to 1970s levels. Eliminate most tax breaks.

Increase corporate tax rates and close loopholes. Targeted breaks for small busineses.

Keep corporate taxes at current rates. Targeted cuts for small businesses instead.

Cut corporate taxes across-the-board to make Canada more competitive on the world stage.

Significantly reduce corporate taxation to attract foreign investment.

@

//Childcare

Implement a public child care program with full control by the federal government.

Bring back the national program with approval from the provinces.

Subsidize more child care spots, and provide a refundable child tax credit.

The $1,200 annually is fine. Continue to open up more spots. A program would be wasteful and unresponsive to some parents.

No money to anyone for raising children. It's not the government's business.

@

//Crime

Minimal sentencing for criminals. Focus on "restorative justice."

Rehabilitation and prevention, not punishment for criminals.

We need a balanced system with harsher penalties for repeat offenders.

Add more law enforcement officers, increase minimum sentencing, and dangerous offender registry.

Very harsh punishment for criminals. Reinstate the death penalty!

@

//Defense

Drastically cut defence expenditures. Establish a Ministry of Peace.

Reduce military budget. Cancel F-35 contract and build naval ships instead.

Keep military budget as is. Review F-35 contract. Encourage enlistment.

Increase military budget. Support F-35 contract. Maintain presence in the Arctic.

Make military funding 5% of GDP. Let's build some aircraft carriers!

@

//Economy

Begin shift to low-carbon economy. Promote regional self-sufficiency.

More funding for social programs and infrastructure. Crack down on outsourcing.

Government support for struggling industries. Invest in job training and education.

Slash bureaucracy and red tape, and cut taxes to create jobs. Reform public sector.

Abolish the minimum wage. Launch deregulation and privatization programme. Move towards American-style capitalism.

@

//Energy

Implement carbon taxes. Reduce fossil fuel use. Massive funding for clean energy production.

Cut all subsidies for oil and gas production. Increase funding for clean energy research and supplies.

Increase funding for public transit. Invest in efficent non-nuclear energy production.

Develop the oil sands. Encourage more oil, coal, and gas production. Promote energy efficiency.

End renewable energy subsidies. Build more nuclear plants. Open up protected areas for energy exploration.

@

//Environment

Global warming is a catastrophe that must be averted at all costs. Tailor policies specifically to help fight it.

The "Clean Air Act" isn't enough. Meet Kyoto targets, and make the environment a major priority.

"Clean Air Act," and adopt Kyoto again. We might make the benchmarks this time.

"Clean Air Act" and better performance, and "Made in Canada" solutions will help us. The economy comes first.

The environment is fine, global warming is based on highly questionable science.

@

//Government

The NDP deserves a shot in government with Layton as PM. The other parties are corrupt and have failed.

Harper is a worse choice in government than a broad-based opposition coalition.

The Conservative Party needs to be kept in check with a minority government.

The Conservative Party deserves a majority government. Stephen Harper deserves another term as PM.

The Conservatives are too liberal. We need a real right-wing government.

@

//Gun Control

Ban all guns, even hunting rifles.

Ban handguns, further limits on other firearms, and bring back the Gun Registry.

Bring back the Gun Registry, but make sure costs are under control and rights respected.

Further gun control is unnecessary and a waste of resources. Stress safety and punishment for violators.

Amend the Charter to entrench gun rights.

@

//Health Care

Confiscate all private facilities and revert them to government ownership.

Prevent further privatization of health care. More funding is necessary to maintain our legacy.

The current agreements on health care are working. No need for major changes. Continue to reduce wait times.

Allow some private health services within the bounds of the Canada Health Act to take a load off the public system.

Bring about a two-tier health system, so that everyone can get the care they want when they want it.

@

//Immigration

A multicultural Canada is our future. Dramatically relax immigration laws. Amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Immigration is great for Canada. Provide greater rights to asylum seekers. Make entry easier for immigrants.

Encourage skilled immigrants and genuine asylum seekers. Maintain current policies.

Focus on immigrants with needed skills and better integration. Crack down on illegal immigration.

Immigration is destroying Canada's heritage and society. Place strict quotas on immigration and asylum seekers.

@

//Middle East

Sever ties with Israel. The wars in Afghanistan, Palestine, and Libya are acts of imperialism and must be opposed.

Bring our troops home from Afghanistan. Condemn Israeli occupation of Palestinian people.

The Libya intervention was just. Support the Middle East peace process as a neutral mediator.

Support Israel's right to self-defense. Maintain our peacekeeping presence in Afghanistan to ensure success of democracy.

Push for an all-out military offensive against terrorist groups and regimes throughout the region.

@

//Personal Taxes

Enact a Carbon Tax to reduce the budget deficit and reduce emissions. Roll back tax cuts.

Increase income tax rates on the wealthy. Oppose the Harmonized Sales Tax agreements.

Some tax cuts, but not at the expense of any programs. Close tax loopholes.

Keep the income and GST tax cuts in the budget. Enact targeted tax relief for families.

Get rid of the capital gains tax, put in a "flat tax" for fair taxation and economic growth.

@

//Provincial Powers

Provincial governments are useless bodies of second-rate politicians. Ottawa knows best.

Provincial governments have important roles, but Ottawa should get presidence to set national standards.

Keep a cooperative relationship with the Provinces to make sure programs run smoothly.

Devolve some powers to the Provinces, with a future Constitutional limitation on Federal power.

Make provinces semi-autonomous powers with the right to secede if they wish.

@

//Quebec

Quebec is a nation, and should be given the proper powers to sustain it. Only the Quebecois can decide their future.

Canada must recognize and appreciate the unique national character of Quebec.

The Quebecois are a nation within a united Canada. No more, no less.

The Quebecois are no more unique than many other groups in Canada. National recognition is a mistake.

No special treatment for Quebec under any circumstance.

@

//Trade Policy

The process of globalisation needs to be reversed. Abrogate NAFTA.

Renegotiate NAFTA for environment, corporate power, and other parts that hurt Canada.

Keep a cautious eye on new trade opportunities. Attempt to persuade the USA to keep NAFTA.

Our current trade policies are fine, more free trade with varied partners.

Open all the trade walls! Whats good for multinational corporations is good for us.

@

//U.S. Relations

The United States is a rogue power, and we should not be allied with them. Pull out of NATO.

We should stand up to the United States more often, especially in trade and foreign affairs.

Maintain good relations, but do not hesitate to stand up for Canadian interests.

The USA is a great friend of Canada, and deeper integration is nothing to fear.

Encourage a customs union and common currency between Canada and the USA.

I did, having fun with it. The BQ seats have held up pretty well against the NDP surge I'm finding.

Not if you do it right, but yeah- I tried to make the BQ as vulnerable as possible. Any suggestions?

Well, I mean held up well compared to the real life result of only having 4. In my couple of playthroughs as the NDP they usually seem to end up with around 25 seats. The one suggestion I might have would to have the "Harper and Ignatieff shread Layton's budget proposals" event sap a little less of the NDP momentum.
