Who We are
The Citizens' Democracy Forum is a group of Canadians concerned with a variety of issues facing Canada.
We are affiliated with no political party, corporation or government agency, at any level.
We receive funding from no corporation, organization, or government agency, at any level.
Our members are, for the most part, resident in South Eastern Ontario, but our concerns are Local, Regional, Provincial and National.
We have no paid staff- we are all concerned volunteers.
Our website is updated when we have something to update.
We encourage contact with other, like minded, groups.
There is a brief overview of our organization on YouTube from start to 4:45 odd.
What is New
- The National Debt continues to rocket skywards
- The 2015 federal election STILL WON'T be the last FPP (first-past-post) election, and Liberals like Omnibus bills to limit MPs 'meddling' in the agenda.
- Instead of using the Bank of Canada for zero-cost loans, Canada has created a new 'bank'- a Crown Corporation to fund Infrastructure investment using money borrowed at compound interest from private organizations (driving the debt higher!). The Bank of Canada could be used to alleviate this, if only our government would let it!
- So, really, none of THAT is new, except the details!
- While automation continues to eliminate jobs some jurisdictions like Ontario, finally, investigate a Universal Basic Income for all citizens!
- New is the growing concern over increasing automation of jobs, job loss, downward pressure on wages and the increasing interest in a Universal Basic Income
- A link to the YouTube video outlining the various forms of Proportional Representation including SMPP.
- A link to a new article in Canadian Dimension about the Bank of Canada by Dr John Ryan.
Our Current Concerns
- Utilize the Bank of Canada for funding Federal and Provincial loans.
- Modernise Canada’s voting System- implement Proportional Representation
using SMPP model!
- Implement a Universal Basic Income/Guaranteed Annual Income/Negative Income Tax system in Canada
- Repeal of the (un)Fair Elections Act
- Global Climate Change, Environmental Issues, and World Conflicts/Peace
