Thanks to the hard work of Liberal members over the past 18 months, the Liberal Party of Canada has taken an important step in its rebuilding process: the re-establishment of our foundation.
On November 16th, 2012, your National Board of Directors adopted our Party’s “Charter”, a document that defines our vision, mission, values, principles and priorities for the next few years.

So now what? These statements are found on our web site for our members, supporters and for all Canadians to see. They will form the basis of our activities and policies. When we ask new members and supporters if they “support the Liberal Party of Canada”, these are the statements we are asking them to support.
Our hope is that you will use these statements when engaging people in your community. We believe that this framework can assist you when carrying out policy related activities. We encourage you to use them in your local events and when recruiting new members and supporters. It is only through you that these statements will come alive.
Now that we are more open and inclusive and have a new solid foundation on which to rely, the next milestone is our 2013 LPC Leadership race.
Thank you for making this happen.
National Policy Chair
PS. I just wanted to add two other little items. First, we’re working on promotional products using various lines from our new Charter so keep an eye on the Liberal University download page. The items should be ready in January 2013.
Second, you might want to read my last blog on this matter for information on the development of the statements. The LPC National Board of Directors is grateful to all those that submitted their views and ideas.
