Looking at Senate Reform and Affordability Issues

This week, I have an unusually short blog post. Since, I have been working on the Rahim Sajan Campaign, I have not had a lot of time to write independent policy.  Instead, working on Rahim’s Policy Team, we have been working together to develop a “new generation of Ideas for a new Generation of Liberals”.

To date, we have published two major policy pieces.  Coincidentally, our first policy proposal was about Senate Reform. While, some might think that the timing was suspect, I assure everyone it was not. For, in our view, Senate Reform can allow for a more rigourous policy process. It could literally change the way we think about policy and governance. With the Concept of Generational Reform, in our heads, we thought that the tradtional role of the Senate could be enhanced. The Chamber of Sober Second Thought would speak on behalf of future citizens. Those citizens that might be born here or those that might immigrate to Canada.  We hope to add to Liberalism and Liberal Thought, so please read the document yourself at http://www.scribd.com/doc/103808363/  and tell us what you think about them.

The second policy piece is on the issue of affordibility. As I have learned, only too well, dollars don’t stretch as far as they once did. It is important for Liberal to address these issues. Consequently, our second piece was given life. It can be found at http://www.scribd.com/doc/105072781/ .

In conclusion, the Calgary Centre By-Election is going to take up a lot of my time from here on in. Therefore, many of my future posts will be short in nature. Many of them will focus on the Policy being created by the Rahim Sajan Campaign. If you want to find out more about him, check out his website at: http://www.teamrahim.ca/.

Otherwise, thank you for putting up with the change in format over the next couple of days.
