I am excited to announce that the Young Liberals of Canada have just held the most open and inclusive policy process in our history! From coast to coast to coast, we received hundreds of submissions from passionate Liberal youth on their policy proposals for our party. Thank you to those who participated!
From dozens of thought-provoking proposals, our members voted to decide the top six resolutions – the ones that have already been passed along to the National Platform Committee for consideration in advance of the 2019 general election. Here they are :
1. End Taxation on menstrual Products
2. National On-Campus Sexual Assault Prevention Strategy
3. Decriminalization of Consensual Sex Work and Sex Trade
4. Food Waste: A Solution for Hunger in Canada
5. National Guaranteed Income
6. Government funding for clean technology
The top three policies are now online for a 30-day commenting period, hosted at www.lpc.ca/policy2018.
If your board, campus club, or youth riding club have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be pleased to answer any questions you may have about the process from here on in.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our process, and I look forward to seeing you in my hometown, Halifax for the 2018 Liberal National Convention!
Erin Brown, Vice President Policy
