The Liberal Party offers a vision of Canadian success in the 21st century that reflects shared Canadian values. Values of fairness, tolerance and sharing. Ours is a vision in which all Canadians have an equal chance to realize their dreams and fulfill their unique potential. We believe Canada must have a strong national government that makes decisions based on the needs and aspirations of all Canadians. We have the plan that will make our vision a reality. That will keep Canada the best country in the world-now and in the future.
— The Right Honourable Jean Chrétien, November 2000
