TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - George Takach officially joined the race to become the next leader of the federal Liberal Party of Canada, promising to build a Canada that works better through co-operation, encouraging innovation, and enhancing rights and freedoms.
Mr. Takach, a Toronto technology lawyer, made his announcement in front of 100 supporters at MaRS Discovery District, a launching pad for entrepreneurs seeking to develop new technology applications and products.
Mr. Takach promised to run a campaign of fresh ideas as the only candidate with real-world business experience in the technology sector. He aims to position the Liberal Party of Canada as the only political movement in Canada that rejects the cynical ideology and divisiveness that dominates the other major parties. But most importantly, he wants to lead a Liberal Party that looks to the future.
In keeping with his vision to empower Canadians, Mr. Takach proposed a Digital Bill of Rights that will ban electronic surveillance without a court order, and implement strong protections against abuse or misuse of personal information from online sources, while also ensuring that law enforcement officials have adequate tools to address online crime and security threats.
"I offer a path where Canadians have the freedom and tools to secure their prosperity without Big Government or Big Brother watching over them - a path where Canada can work better," Mr. Takach said.
