A smaller government that respects individual rights and succeeds in its few legitimate functions.
That the Canadian government takes all needs into account and takes action.

I hope that by 2020 Canada will shift from First-Past-The-Post system. We need more accurate and proportional representation.
I hope Canada will build infrastructure and policy to adapt to the world's modern technological and social demands.
