After researching and reflecting, I have concluded that my beliefs align most closely with Conservative due to their plan for taxes, healthcare, and education. I agree with the Conservative’s plan for taxes because we already pay taxes through many different things such as housing and property tax, sales tax, and by paying the minimum wage tax, it would be much more difficult to pay for the other taxes as well as for future. This applies to my life because both of my parents are minimum wage workers who must pay for these taxes making it difficult to save up for my postsecondary education. In addition, I agree with their healthcare plan because they are prioritizing mental health services which is evident by their budget unlike the Liberal party’s lack of planning.
The mental health services matter in my life because I’ve met a few people who suffer from mental illnesses such as anxiety and refuse to talk about it. But by having more mental health services, it would decrease the stigma around mental illness as well as help them. I also agree with the plan for the education system because I personally find that the current sex-ed curriculum is somewhat unsuitable as it can be a mature subject that kids are not ready to learn about yet. This is important to me because I have a sibling whom I think is not ready to be learning with the curriculum. Therefore this is why I align more closely with the Conservative.
