How 2013 LPC Leadership vote works

We’re in this together

Read the 2013 LPC Leadership Souvenir Guide

From introducing the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to getting Canada out of deficit in the 1990s, change in Canada happens when Liberals lead. That’s because Liberals stand for growth, hope and opportunity. We want a strong economy that works for the middle class and a prosperous, socially just, united and environmentally healthy Canada for all Canadians.

Now, as we look forward, Liberals have big bold dreams for Canada, just like you. We want you by our side as the Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, chosen by YOU, takes us forward.
