6.12 Rebuilding federal/provincial/territorial relations

On Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 in Vision Green

After the 1982 patriation of the Constitution and the refusal of Quebec to sign the Constitution, after two failed federal accords, two referendums, asymmetrical federalism, a sponsorship scandal, and ‘nation within a nation’ legislation, many Quebecers and Canadians ask the obvious question: “Where do we go from here?”

The Green Party proposes to make Canada a true functioning Confederation in which the provinces and territories are more empowered and financed to meet the needs of their communities.

Green Party MPs will:

  • Rebalance the funding formula to ensure fairness across regions and provinces;
  • Remove the false choice for those provinces eligible for equalization to allow access to funds for health, education, and other services provided through equalization, and remove any requirement to abandon rights under the Atlantic Accord.
