In an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in January 2016, Gary Marshall stated the new party is "...a party of tax cuts", and its platform includes pledges of lowering the provincial sales tax rate to 5% from 8%, removal of PST charges on all food purchases, and changing the personal and business income tax rates to a flat 10%, among other proposals.
The party also proposes to remove all red light and speed cameras from intersections and mobile units, eradicate government regulations "...that impede trade and commerce", and changing how tax revenues are allocated among education, municipalities, and so on.
