No. 9
PLATFORM OF THE NEW UNIONIST PARTY
In announcing the policy of the new Unionist government,
Premier Borden issued the following as a preliminary statement:
"The present Union or National government has been formed
with a desire to give representation to all elements of the population
who support the purpose and effort of Canada in this war.
Representative men of both political parties are included in its
personnel, and it is intended forthwith to give Labor special
representation, upon the principle already followed with regard to
agriculture. Impressed by the urgent need of putting aside all
minor considerations, of sinking all party differences, and of
presenting a united front at this solemn and momentous juncture in
the nation's history, the members of the government have come
together in the duty of service to the national interest.
"The lines of policy, which will be followed carefully, relative
to the prosecution of the war and to the consideration and solution
of problems which will arise during its progress, or which will
supervene upon the conclusion of peace, may be outlined as
follows:
"1. The vigorous prosecution of the war, the maintenance of
Canada's effort by the provision of the necessary reinforcements,
the immediate enforcement of the Military Service Act and the
most thorough co-operation with the governments of the United
Kingdom and the other Dominions in all matters relating to the
war.
"2. Civil service reform, with a view to extending the
principle of the present civil service act to the outside service and
thus to abolish patronage and to make appointments to the public
service upon the sole standard of merit. The civil service commis
sion has already been directed to make a report to the Prime
Minister as to the necessary steps for that purpose. Such arrangements will be subject to the existing regulations, which give
preference in appointments to returned soldiers who are duly
qualified.
"3 Extension of the franchise to women, with suitable
provision for enabling married women to determine their nationality
and to obtain naturalization notwithstanding marriage.
"4. Adequate taxation of war profits and increased taxation
of incomes, as necessitated by the continuance of the war.
"5. A strong and progressive policy of immigration and
colonization,accompanied by suitable provisions to induce settlement
upon the land; to encourage increased agricultural production and
aid in the development of agricultural resources.
"6. Effective arrangements for demobilization, for the care
and vocational training .of returned soldiers, for aid in enabling
them to settle upon the land, and for adequate pensions to those
who are disabled and to the dependents of those who have fallen.
"7. The development of transportation facilities; co-operation
in management of the various railway systems so as to ensure
economy in operation, to avoid unnecessary construction and to
secure the widest and most effective use of existing railway
facilities; the encouragement and development of the shipbuilding
industry.and the establishment of steamship lines upon both oceans
and the Great Lakes; co-operation with the various provincial
governments for the improvement of highways; the investigation
of the possibilities of air services for important naval purposes.
"8. The reduction of public expenditure, the avoidance of
waste and the encouragement of thrift.
"9. Effective measures to prevent excessive profits,to prohibit
hoarding and to prevent combinations for the increase of prices
and thus to reduce the cost of living.
"10. The encouragement of co-operation among those engaged
in production with a view to diminishing the cost of production
and marketing so that the price to the producer may conform more
closely to that paid by the consumer.
"11. The general development of all the varied resources of
Canada and their conservation and utilization to the best advantage
of the people, with the co-operation and aid of the state in every
reasonable way for that purpose.
"12. Adequate consideration of the industrial population; the
maintenance of good relations between employers and employees
and such conditions of employment as will assure suitable standards
of living among the laboring classes.
"The policy of the governme.it will also aim at a truer
understanding and comprehension between the various communities,
both east and west, and the development of a national spirit of
united effort among our people as the trustees of a great heritage.
"For the purpose of effectively carrying out these policies, the
following methods have been determined:
"1. A new portfolio, that of immigration and colonization,
lias been established.
"2. For the effective prosecution of the war, a permanent
commission of the cabinet will be
established.
"3. For the purpose of considering and carrying out the
other lines of policy above mentioned, another permanent commission of the cabinet will also
be constituted.
"The orders-in-council establishing these commissions have
been prepared, and as soon as
they are approved by His Excellency the Governor-General, they
will be given to the press for
publication.
"The personnel of each commission will be announced at the
same time."
