The National Citizens Alliance (NCA) is committed to reforming the federal government into one that solely serves the Canadian people.
To achieve this objective, many reforms are necessary. The following is a sample of the reforms that the NCA will implement upon forming government:
• Citizen-initiated recall
• Citizen-initiated referendum
• Citizen-initiated legislation
• Vote of the people on legislation
• Disband Privy Council
• Binding national vote of non-confidence on the PM and/or the Federal Government
Recall of any elected federal official by his or her constituents and based upon reasonable and attainable recall thresholds and quorums.
Binding referendum on any issue whilst attaining minimum threshold of citizen support, and minimum quorum in the referendum vote.
As per the NCA Party Constitution, NCA elected representatives are required to follow the political will of their constituency on any issue as long as the NCA core values of freedom, fairness, and accountability are upheld, and a minimum threshold of citizen support is attained by the constituency. Upon forming government, the NCA would legislate this citizen initiated legislation process upon all representatives in the House of Commons.
VOTE OF THE PEOPLE ON LEGISLATION
Using electronic means, Constituents would be encouraged to dictate to their MP as to how to vote on a particular legislation. The MP would be required to vote the will of his or her constituency subject to a quorum of 2,000 members of the constituency and 50% plus 1 rule. The votes of the constituencies on particular legislation would be transparent to the public. Further, the Canadian public would be encouraged to run their government by getting actively involved at least 5 hours a week.
DISBAND PRIVY COUNCIL
Disband the Privy Council, an unelected, unaccountable shadow government, within 100 days of forming government.
BINDING NATIONAL REFERENDA of NON-CONFIDENCE ON THE PM and/or the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
1 year following a federal election and at least 1 year prior to a scheduled general election, the Canadian people would be permitted to a vote of non-confidence on the Prime Minister and/or the federal government. The 50% plus 1 rule and no quorum would determine the outcome of the vote. This binding vote would be triggered by a petition of at least 6,000,000 members of the Canadian electorate.
