Ontario at a crossroads. Agreement within the Progressive Conservative party about the need for economic growth, a reduction of government regulation, a fairer and more equitable tax system, freedom for business to compete and create jobs, the need to control government spending, the control of government's total share of the total wealth of the community. Concern is one of causes for which the speaker hopes Canadians and his party have the courage to care. The need for those in government to find a new humanism and sensitivity with which to share public policy and guide political progress. A definition of politics and the responsibilities of solving social problems. How to modernize without dehumanizing society. A listing of issues about which the speaker feels strongly society and politicians must address. The importance of people and causes.
