Act Canada is the Canadian Chapter of an international political movement concept dedicated to building a sustainable Right Plan in every country.
A Right Plan – is a strategic plan of Economic Injectors and supporting government policy. Right Plans are composed of policy that are empirically proven to turn-around Economies and build a Good Life sustainably – for generations to come as well as now. CSQ Certification is the easiest way to spot sustainable policy and, of course, it’s important to vote and do your part too.
We reform Democracy to permit Sustainable Policy
Policies can be copied by any Political Party; but copying a sustainable policy occasionally does not makes any Political Party a responsible choice. You want your vote to ensure that every policy has a track record proven to create prosperity and good lives. An underlying shortcoming of pure-democracy exists within all democratic political parties today; and it is one which has created a 20-year track record of Economic Collapse-trending in Canada, the U.S, U.K., and 72% of other democratic nations internationally.
Act Canada reforms Democratic Process so that unsustainable nuggets like “Open Policies”, Immigration, Diversity, Gender Equality – and other emotionally appealing topics – do not distract from meaningful policy proven to build Canadian Freedoms, Economy, Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency.
Why is Democratic Change Important? To give Canada Long-term Strategic Planning – and the chance of prosperity again. Is it reasonable to expect that Oil will vanish when families depend on these steady good jobs? No – of course it’s not. Transition needs support in incomes, insurance, pensions, and education so that Canadians can switch to clean and equally economically beneficial industries. Without these supports, we are lying to our kids when we tell them we are not just about the status quo.
Today, every member of a political party in Canada can vote to create policy. It doesn’t matter whether these people are career politicians, non-expert volunteers, marketing leads, or conflict-of-interest individuals. Non-experts directly over-rule expert policy-makers easily and then electoral marketing teams change policy again based on what they think “can win” elections. Are issues like Middle Class, Female Equality, and Diversity important policy issues? Emotionally you might feel yourself respond to them, but these are all points that are resolved easily once a strong economy and personal freedoms are restored; and those things are restored by a very different, much less dramatic set of policies and hard work.
Important Policy are economic injectors (with GDP Export per Capita and self-sufficiency targets), education, onshored employment and investment, anti-usury and anti-bubble laws, and we have to disallow commodity products not manufactured nor owned locally. Policy is presented in Business Cases short-term, mid-term, and long-term with proven, documented track records in advancing-economy nations. A complete Right Plan example is shown below.
In History: A Monarch – with his/her expert advisory committee(s) set Strategic Direction for a Nation in 10-to-30+ year timelines (reigns). Parliaments on the Right of the King argued for a Conservative approach to this planning; where Left-sitting Lords argued a more expensive and feature-rich liberal approach. Both left and right worked toward an expert plan of responsible strategic objectives.
Today: Politicians and marketing teams sponsor emotional favourites that can get them voted into power. Simple majority governs – regardless of whether a policy is proven Economically harmful – or helpful. Spending is routinely announced without also announcing targeted return on the investment (ROI).
What happens if we do nothing; accept this status-quo: Poland is the world’s longest-running true-democratic country. In 400-years, a simple majority vote took the country from super-power six-times its modern-day size, to near-obliteration in World War II. Collapse is inevitable in a pure Democracy – just as it is in Pure Capitalism; the only mitigations are to i) train all voters to be sustainable policy experts in high-school or 2) insist that an experts-only panel create proven-sustainable strategic policy.
How does the “Act Canadian” Party change Democracy?
- A Right Plan of Policies are tabled by expert researchers; these policies are then ratified (agreed to and followed) by all parties
- Right and Left parties approach Right Plans from more Conservative or Liberal tacts, but both sides are always supporting a sustainable Right Plan
- Right Plan Policies are not based on EGO but rather on moral, altruistic SELF – see Steven Pressfield’s definitions from “War of Art”
- Policies are proven to restore a Good Life in advancing economies in other countries consistently
- Policies are backed up by business cases; so that spending has an expectation of return; with monitoring
- Short, mid, and long-term cost, benefit & impacts are understood, measured during policy operation, and adjusted if targets are missed
- Will this require a change in constitution? Laws should be revisited regularly; just as in software change controls. When the economy is failing; status quo become an direct line to a cliff.
Socrates said that Great Philosophy is Great Leadership; and Great Leaders are Great Philosophers. The Ten Commandments & the Golden Rule are examples of important Philosophy that were later adopted by every religion in history. History has proven Socrates correct through Buddha, Alexander the Great, Marcus Aurelius, King Arthur, Sun Tzu, Saladin, Queen Elizabeth I, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Ghandi, John Kennedy, and other legendary leaders.
In Politic (322 BC), Aristotle noted that “a meaningful life” was one spent contributing to a Right Plan of Worthwhile Projects that support a sustainable community and Good Lives.
A Right Plan has two parts:
- Development (Worthwhile Projects): Development is Built; and Building requires strong planning and the support of…
- Government Policies that make these projects possible – TE-Mature Policy
Consider George Jetson’s 3-hour workdays and 2-day work-weeks – without fossil fuels, no overcrowding, in an idyllic futuristic setting. Consider that to get us from today’s policies to that level of change, we are going to have to: uncouple economies from status quo trade leaders – like Crude Oil; and then we must uncouple incomes, healthcare, insurance, and pensions from traditional jobs – so that automation can do the repetitive labour for us. Anti-eviction and guaranteed incomes must protect homeowners from the rise and fall of interest rates in uncertain job markets and automated communities must reduce our cost-of-living to enable much smaller pension incomes to meet our needs in retirement.
Smaller-population countries realized the importance of making socially-responsible, sustainable decisions in national policy quickly, because a nation of just 5-million people quickly felt the impact of neighbours losing incomes when engineering jobs were offshored; or country resource rights were mismanaged. In a much larger population country, the impacted individuals could be absorbed by other industries – for a time. We see that that time is running out as the U.S.’s federal and state economies – and democracy – are visibly faltering today.

Many Canadians live as “boiled frogs” today; in an uncomfortable world made uncomfortable so slowly that we can not even note when things started to change for the worse. Retired Canadians, age 60+ and above, can look back on a relatively easy life; with easy access to home-ownership, jobs, single family incomes, pensions and so on. Young Canadians today, face seemingly insurmountable odds by comparison.
What is Freedom? Freedom – is a 20-year-old man or woman who can can support a family and children at age 20 – while still attending higher education from their their own home. Freedom is not living with concerns like working and saving for years, before you can pay-off student loans and then work to afford a starter home in your mid-thirties. At this point you can marry and start having kids at 40 in hopes that you won’t be among that 50+% of couples that divorce and that you are not fired at age 45 to 50 from your career. That’s a boiled frog; and for many Canadian it’s reality, madness, and clearly not – freedom
Freedom lets families live close to each other – if they wish – so that they can help younger and older generations to support one another
Women can work – or raise their children – as, and when, they wish
Respect-for-one-another is a basic marital instruction and ideal that ensures a society-wide low divorce-rate, strong families, homes, and sufficient pension incomes
Fathers are not bound to office cubicles and three hour daily commutes; while worthwhile engineering, medical, and community automations benefit all
A rewarding life – of art, science, discovery, adventure, travel, acknowledgement and rewarded contribution – while building worthwhile projects,
Engineering Safety Nets, and Economy-Assisting Innovation, is available widely
A Party of Canadian Leaders committed to responsible positive change, and to averting the need for violent revolution resulting from status quo without change:
- If you believe that our younger generations are going to rent shabby flats within housing bubbles without ever having the opportunity to own a home, pension, dental benefits, the education they wish, nor the opportunity to raise families at a young age – think again
- We are: not Liberal, not Conservative; we stand for proven policy and we state our proofs in-research and business cases transparently
It’s a much less-dramatic and more-professional approach to running a country – as we see it.

- Canada’s Economy must Monetize (similar to China’s 30-year Right Plan); so, we must maximize Exports with a laser-focus on GDP Exports-per-Capita stats
- We need to be Self-sufficient in order to reduce Imports
- Good Lives need abundance, prosperity, technical leadership, opportunity and freedom
- Scarcity, conservation, and inequity – is the Economy of the 1000-year-unproductive dark ages & middle ages
- Accept data without fear; if Socialistic Policy nations are Advancing 95% while Capitalistic Policy nations are 40%, ignore a lifetime of bad programming
- Transition Economics explains that high inequity is a 4:1 Cost:Benefit issue that must be addressed actively in Depression Cycles like today; countries that have already, still live a Good Life (the American Dream) today…
Why Act Canadian?
Aristotle called the American Dream a “Good Life” 2500-years ago. A Meaningful Life, he explained, was one spent building a Right Plan of worthwhile projects that build a sustainable society; communities, with all the basic needs of a Good Life like abundant food, shelter, education, opportunity, transportation, prosperity and security.
Right Planning is a step-by-step process in Business, Engineering, Finance, and Economics to build sustainable communities and economies reliably. Hundreds of hi-tech jobs sharing resources across dozens of Smart City industries in a configuration that reduces Return-on-Investment (ROI) – down to as little as just 20-months.
Alan Turing’s 1943 Universal Machine began a 70-year era of automation that is as promising as it has been disruptive. G7 Governments appear universally uncertain about how to support citizens through a steady barrage of job-losses at the same time that the benefits of computer automation are undeniable.
Strategic Planning discussions often conclude that if we do not “shoot where the duck will fly”, and develop self-sustaining automation today, then we will find ourselves purchasing automated imports from China, Germany, and others within five years – and we see this already today.
No other country will spend more for our lower-quality exports – until the failing of our exports have a devastating, destabilizing economic impact similar to the USSR’s 1986 Economic Collapse for this same reason. In a global monetary system, countries must be self-sufficient and they must also monetize their economy by creating export wealth. Failing both risks economic collapse.
To solve these critical problems, CSQ Research – our guiding Think-Tank, compared the production, debt and trade stats of 180 countries and found that 72% are in a collapse-trending today (a “collapse-trending” indicates debt and trade deficits). Analyzing the policies and economies of the other 28% of “Advancing” nations, is a study in sustainable, empirically proven-successful policy – scientifically speaking. Here is what we learned.
Countries with high ExCaps very rarely have economies in a collapse trending – and people live well. The Netherlands’ ExCap is $33,600, Canada is $13,300, and the US is $5,100. The US and Canada are Collapse-trending; Holland is Advancing. When corrected to Holland’s ExCap levels, Canadians would earn $630 billion in new exports annually – that’s a 250% increase in today’s exports. The U.S. side-steps $8 trillion annually by this calculation, and the U.K. loses $1.5 trillion. China’s Economy is Advancing with low ExCap, but their brilliant, Herculean 30-year plan to lift 1.3 billion people out of the stone-age, still showcases a standard-of-living for the average citizen that would be a steep step-backward for G7 nations; low-ExCap, low-opportunity, plus high-inequity was the pervasive economy of a 1000-year medieval dark-age. (Find the stats that we used at http://csq1.org/forums/topic/middle-class-for-power-49-percent-for-prosperity/ and http://csq1.org/forums/topic/the-business-case-for-guaranteed-incomes/).
The discussion casts into sharp relief the very high cost of inequity-levels that prevent a highly productive population. For Canada, $630 billion in new country-wide export revenues makes a compelling Business Case for the 1/10th smaller-cost social supports, and automations that support a Good Life, at a fraction of the cost, and new export wealth while we sleep.
With community automations in basic needs of food, housing, energy, basic goods, Citizens are self-sufficient; they can live good lives that will be little disrupted by economic ups and downs. Automating communities reduces the need for Import spending, it creates exports that citizens can sell, and this approach also enables incomes to be sustained away from overcrowded cities and housing-bubbles; this prevents inflation, which protects pension values, while reducing inequity; and this strengthens democracy’s sustainably too.
Without these automations, and supporting policies, Canada’s Economy is not self-sufficient, so it will need more Imports as it struggles to sell its exports in an increasingly higher-quality, lower-cost international marketplace. As Trade Deficits and Collapse-trendings accelerate, we have few options.
Worthwhile PLCs build these automated Export Economic Injectors, and cost-of-living & import-reducing Community Automations specifically. Our Automated Exports, similar to Germany-owned VW, build robots (automated assembly lines) that build robots (autonomous cars, autonomous lumber farms, etc.) that create high-quality exports and new wealth (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-09-22/why-volkswagen-systematically-important-germany-and-europe).
Our automations adhere to #WPProjects’ list of the 250 technologies needed to create automated communities (see http://csq1.org/world-peace-transition-projects-faq/) and Transition Economics’ TEMature Policy (http://csq1.org/transition-economics-maturity-model/#TEMat); a list of the Economic Policy Injectors consistently employed by “Advancing” nations. Together, this is a Strategic Right Plan (another term of Aristotle’s) for reliably advancing economies, incomes, and spending-power – while we sleep.
Worthwhile PLCs build these benefits profitably and in a socially responsible and sustainable approach that works with people. Automation is not about denying someone income, or their dream job of delivering flowers, rather its about preventing a life spent twisting light-bulbs into assembly-line refrigerators; its about restoring poetry, music, arts, culinary arts, life-sciences research, imagery, exploration, discovery, and restoring humanity and freedoms to our society. Ask a 20-year truck driver (20-year anything for that matter) “Are you ready for a change?“ Eight times of ten, you are going to hear “Yes”.
Strategic Public Investment in interconnected Renewable Automations is a shift in thinking as beneficial as was Henry Ford’s assembly line. It’s a shift that supports worthwhile and profitable industry at the same time that it also harvests the trillions of dollars in economic prosperity left on the table when our technology Investments do not inter-operate to support a Good Life. When Investment Markets prosper at the same time that national Debt, Deficits, Unemployment, Incomes and Trade Deficits are corrected, only then can they be considered sustainable – and worthwhile.
