What does it mean to join the Liberal Party of Canada?
In Canada, people have the opportunity to join a political party of their choice by paying a modest membership fee. Usually, the only 'political' requirement to becoming a member of a party is to state in writing that you are not a member or supporter of any other political party. (This is referred to variously as 'making a commitment to the party' or 'party loyalty.') Membership in a political party allows you opportunities to choose your party's candidate in an election, attend membership meetings in your riding (i.e., electoral district), and become a delegate to party conventions where party policy is decided. There is also a certain amount of social life within political parties, which includes opportunities to meet party leaders face-to-face. There is a general expectation that a member of a political party will volunteer to help out during an election campaign, and make a modest financial donation to the cause. These, however, are not mandatory. But party loyalty is a more important requirement than contributing time or money to the party. In essence, one is expected to support the policies and leaders of one's party, or at least remain silent and not openly oppose them. Roughly 3 percent of Canada's population are so-called "card-carrying members" of one political party or another. I, for example, was a member of Canada's New Democratic Party (NDP) for well over a quarter century. (I am still a strong supporter of the NDP and I voluntarily continue to respect and observe party loyalty.) You will find the official list of Canada's registered political parties at the Elections Canada website. (Just Google "elections canada.") Feel free to contact any or all of Canada's political parties for further information about each one.

it's leaderless... you can't formally join. You may call yourself a part of the front if you commit an action that adheres to their strict nonviolent guidelines, and are vege…tarian or vegan: - To liberate animals from places of abuse, and place them in good homes where they are free to live out their natural lives, free from suffering - To inflict economic damage to those who profit from the misery and exploitation of animals - To reveal the horrors and atrocities committed against animals behind locked doors, by performing nonviolent direct actions and liberations - to take all necessary precautions against harming any animal, human and nonhuman
The liberal party was founded in 1944 to replace the United Austrlia Party. The United Australia party was formed in 1931 which was governed by Robert Meckenzie.
Jesus is not interested in earthly politics.
To create closer ties to the United States, particularly through liberalized trade.
Yes liberal is left and conservative is right
Liberals tend to favor policies that help the poor, workers, and middle class. They would favor individual liberty, support the right of workers to engage in collective bargai…ning, and endorse public education, public transportation, and a single payer medical insurance option.
They're a registered political party which currently sits in opposition in the House of Commons and Senate.

Canada's Federal Liberal Party is Canada's oldest still existing party, though they are going through a rough patch. They ruled Canada for most of the 20th century making Cana…da effectively a single party state in many ways. Politically they wanted and want Liberalized Trade with the USA and closer ties to the USA rather than Britain, smaller military, more social programs and more rights for some of Canada's founding peoples. The 20th century saw them achieve most of that and the Canada we have today is for the most part their creation. Key beliefs have been flexible to enable them to maintain power. Their largest block of support has come from French Quebec with much less support in Western Canada, which was not needed in our system.
