Ensuring fair, effective services for Canadians

Posted on June 17, 2015

June 17, 2015 (Ottawa) – The Liberal Party of Canada has announced a plan that will change the way Ottawa works and make Parliament more open, transparent and effective.

“People are fed up with the lack of accountability in Ottawa, and with the inefficiency of government services,” said Halifax West M.P., Geoff Regan.  “Our plan will bring real change to the way Ottawa works.”

The Liberal plan will raise the bar on transparency and accountability, and modernize the way government works, by implementing measures, including but not limited to:

-Giving Canadians a voice in Ottawa by allowing more independence for Members of Parliament and government watchdogs;

– Ensuring open and fair elections by moving forward with electoral reform;

– Banning partisan government advertising;

– Making evidence-based decisions on programs and policies;

– Providing better and timelier services to Canadians with a more inclusive and engaging policy-making process; and

– Proactively informing Canadians about tax benefits they are entitled to, but do not currently receive and improving the way the Canada Revenue Agency communicates with clients.

“This plan directly responds to many of the most common complaints I hear from constituents about their frustrations in dealing with the bureaucracy and the erosion of our democracy, “said Regan.

Details about the plan can be found at RealChange.ca.
