Why they joined Canadian Future

Updated: Apr 4

There’s something happening here. Except in this case it seems pretty clear. Canadians across the country know we are facing serious challenges at home and abroad but don’t see traditional federal political parties having the courage or chutzpah to actually get serious about them. They are politically homeless and seeking an alternative. And they are signing up to support the Canadian Future Party.


This week I'd like to introduce you to some of the and share their testimonials about what has attracted them to this new party.


Antoine W, an 18-year-old student from Papineau in Quebec:


‘Because I find that none of the current parties represent my interests well. The Canadian Future Party, unlike the current parties, offers real solutions based on facts instead of constantly attacking the opposition. I'm tired of always seeing Poilievre and Trudeau attacking each other but never proposing solutions. Furthermore, the Canadian Future Party aligns quite well with my political ideology. I would say it is a center-right conservative party.’


Arthur Goldsmith, a 38-year-old software engineer from Vancouver East in British Columbia, who describes himself as a Jewish atheist:


‘Tired of extreme politics. Tired of first past the post. Tired of the pandering to the loudest voices. All parties seem lost or out of touch. Want a positive vision that respects multiple viewpoints, even if I disagree with them.’



Kyle Poland, from Barrie-Innisfil in Ontario, a 28-year-old college professor teaching health science courses:


‘I am trained as a scientist where every decision you make and every opinion you have must be informed by evidence. I see a distinct lack of scientific thinking in current Canadian politics. I want the thinking of our government to become more scientific.

‘If you are going to state something as fact, you must have evidence to support your claim. If you think you're right and someone presents evidence that disproves your theory, you change your stance in light of new information. That doesn't seem to happen in politics.‘I have been following politics closely since I was young but have never felt that any of the parties truly represented my way of thinking. I don't want a party that chooses an opinion and sticks with it no matter what. I want a party that makes evidence-based decisions and is willing to adapt when confronted by conflicting information. ‘Being proven wrong is an opportunity to improve and do your job better and I don't feel that any of our current parties understand that.‘I joined the Canadian Future Party because I finally feel represented. I like the idea of there being a party focused on doing their job well rather than being infallible. With the Canadian Future Party, for the first time, I don't feel like a lost young person having to choose between parties that I don't have confidence in.’I have confidence in evidence-based, scientific thinking. I have confidence in the Canadian Future Party.’


These are just a few of the many Canadians signing up to the new Canadian Future Party. I thank them and all of you who have reached out to join a political party that wants to operate boldly to address critical issues based on evidence and the interests of Canadians.
