"We must demonstrate to Canadians that through membership in our Party, they can exercise true influence over the course of the national agenda, and share in the authorship of the social contract that binds us together and defines us as a nation," said Akaash. "Liberal Party membership should be the proof that democracy can be more than just a manner of choosing governments; it can be a manner of governing ourselves."
