Akaash at work creating national Policy and Leadership Fora


   
Akaash addresses the Atlantic Policy and Leadership Forum

As National Policy Chair of the Liberal Party of Canada, Akaash has been travelling the country, creating a series of Policy and Leadership Fora across Canada, in which grassroots policy development workshops will be married to televised debates between the leadership candidates.

"During this defining period in the Party's history, it is a political and ethical imperative that as grassroots Liberals, we have an opportunity to come together in debate to shape the future of Liberalism, and that equally, we ensure that we elect our next leader in a context of vigorous and substantive debate," said Akaash.

Each Forum will include a set of morning policy workshops, to provide grassroots Liberals with the opportunity to express their views on the direction of the Party and the country. The workshops will be followed in the afternoon by a debate between the three leadership candidates, to question them on how they would give effect to the views expressed by Liberals.

Liberals can participate directly in the Fora by attending the workshops and debates, and may also submit questions in advance to be put to the leadership candidates.

"Our objectives are to allow grassroots policy development to harness the energy unleashed by the leadership elections; to compel leadership aspirants to engage with and to become accountable to the expressed views of Party members; and to ensure that we take full advantage of the change in leadership to catalyse Party renewal," said Akaash.

"It is my hope that through this exercise, our Party will show itself equal to our responsibility to ensure that our leadership election is as much about fostering a genuinely national vision of the public interest, as it is about a contest of organisational prowess."
