Equality and Government Accountability

We believe governments should practise transparency at all levels, to ensure they operate for the benefit of everyone they govern. Because transparency makes for stronger democratic institutions.

We also believe that every person should have the same status, rights and opportunities in life and before the law, especially those who have and continue to experience entrenched and systemic discrimination, such as First Nations peoples.
