Canadian Action Party leader Christopher Porter today announced his intention to run for the House of Commons seat in the upcoming Toronto Danforth by-election.
The recent Occupy movement in Canada has made it clear that a large number of Canadians are concerned with the monetary policies that Canada has been following and that finical and monetary reform is a pressing issue with Canadians that the three major parties continue to ignore.
The practice of granting large tax breaks to corporations in the hope of creating jobs ignores the real problem with our economic system, which is the fact that since the 1970’s we have allowed the private banking system to create our money in Canada when clearly that power should reside in the hands of the Canadian people though our publicly owned Bank of Canada.
As the Harper government leads Canada down the path of foreign wars, Globalization and austerity measures that dismantle the very programs that makes Canada the great nation that it is, Christopher Porter and the Canadian Action Party want Canadians to know that we can take back out national sovereignty and restore the Canadian economy.
By running the leader of the party in this by-election CAP wishes to send a clear message to the Canadian people that we can change the way politics are conducted in Canada. For too long this Country has been controlled by corporate, banking and labour interests and Christopher Porter believes the time has come for the average working Canadian reclaim control and the direction this country is moving in.
