It's time to up our game, friend.
Right now, our movement is facing a real, immediate and critical challenge.
In less than four days the Conservative Party elects Stephen Harper's permanent replacement. For months, their leadership candidates have been promising to roll back all of our work together to build a better future for Canadians. They have denied climate change, opposed marriage equality and a woman's right to choose, voted against tax cuts for the middle class families, and promised to cut the Canada Child Benefit. One of the leading contenders has even committed to dismantling Canada's world-renowned healthcare system.
These plans are extreme, out-of-touch, and irresponsible. We can't let it happen.
Everything we've accomplished so far is because of your hard work, your hope and your belief in building a better future for all Canadians.
Together we're helping ensure 500,000 families have access to safe, secure, affordable housing. New Health Funding Agreements with nearly every province and territory will provide more and better home care and mental health support. And the Liberal government's investment in jobs and skills training will help Canadians get and keep good middle class jobs.
We know the new CPC leader will be able to advance their extreme positions with access to the massive Conservative Party war chest – they just outraised us by millions in Q1 of this year.
So before the Conservative Party chooses Stephen Harper's successor this Saturday, let's show them how strong the Liberal movement is. Can you chip in now and help close the fundraising gap?
We've worked so hard together to support positive politics and a stronger middle class – and we can't let up for a moment. There is much more we need to accomplish together. Let's make sure we do.
