The party's traditional
populistbeliefs in representative and direct democracy follow those of the politics of pre-Confederation Reform Party leader William Lyon Mackenzie, former United Farmers of Ontariopremier Ernest Charles Druryand former Ontario Cooperative Commonwealth Federation member Agnes Campbell Macphail. It planned to adopt a statement of principles, policies and platform built on a "people-first-politics" constitution.
