The history of Canada has been built on one, simple conviction: that we are not many, but one, not a collection of communities, but one great people, bound to each other by the promise of equality, opportunity and justice for all.
Our riding association is committed to promoting the core principles and values that have historically sustained the Liberal Party of Canada – individual freedom, responsibility and human dignity in the framework of a just society. We believe that the dignity of each individual man and woman is the cardinal principle of democratic society.
Liberals believe in government as nation-building, and we have the record to prove it: Medicare, the Canada Pension Plan, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, official bilingualism and multiculturalism, equal marriage and the best public finances in the world. We summoned up the best in Canadians and together we built the country we love.
Our party has always united Canadians. We are the big tent of Canadian life, where all are welcome and all can be sure their voices will be heard. Our party’s vocation is to strengthen the spine of our citizenship and to deepen the pride we feel for Canada on the world stage.
We respect our differences. We accept our identities. We do not impose one single brand of patriotism. We let our citizens decide. And that’s why we offer you a warm invitation to join with us. We are working hard to help build a better Canada and we encourage you to get involved or let us know what you are thinking as we are stronger together.
The Victoria Federal Liberal Association.
