|Politics of Canada
According to its website, The Bridge Party is effectively non-partisan. The party refuses to take a position “on issues which routinely divide Canadians and which distinguish one political party from another”. The aim of the party, instead of achieving power and influence, is to change the way in which Canadians relate to one another on the subject of politics and cause Canadians to have a deep conversation about the future of the country.
Additionally, the role of the Prime Minister will be greatly reduced. According to the party, the role of the Prime Minister will be to generally oversee the missions of the cabinet ministers, and represent the country abroad.
In terms of economic policy, the party has called for a 20-hour work week, increased investments in the humanities and social sciences, and a shift from economic measurements that are based on productivity and GDP to those that measure happiness.
