MAVERICK Party's Policy Platform is a compilation of input and feedback from our members, supporters, EDA President and EDA Boards, Maverick Party Governing Council, candidates, interim party leader, as well as input from industry and constitutional experts, and the Alberta Fair Deal panel.
The Policy Platform was presented and voted upon by Maverick Party member delegates at our founding convention in August 2021, and was approved by 99%.
As always, it is a reflection of what is best for the West, without compromise or any attempt to appease voters in Central and Eastern Canada.
True Western Representation
Maverick Party Members of Parliament will always defend the best interests of Western Canadians and only support legislation that benefits their constituents and the West.
Fairness or Freedom
Maverick Party supports greater provincial autonomy in critical areas such as taxation, pensions, immigration, and policing. Our Twin Track approach outlines our support to end the equalization formula, scrap all carbon taxes and implement 5 proposed constitutional amendments.
