Provincial Jurisdiction, Trade & Infrastructure

  1. The Maverick Party supports the removal of interprovincial barriers to trade through agreements, including trade dispute settlement mechanisms amongst the provinces.

  2. The Maverick Party supports the twinning of railway lines from Manitoba to British Columbia (tidewater) to facilitate increased manufacturing of goods and easier movement of agricultural, oil, gas, minerals, and forest products for export.

  3. The Maverick Party supports the twinning of major highways through Western Canada to tidewater to improve the movement of people and goods.

  4. The Maverick Party advocates that western provinces pursue greater provincial autonomy in the areas of taxation, EI insurance, pensions, immigration, policing, education, environment, childcare, and healthcare by renegotiating federal provincial agreements and restoring the rights ceded to Ottawa or which Ottawa has encroached upon.
