Jane Paxton obtained an Honours Degree in Psychology from the University of Guelph in Ontario. Following university she worked as a social services administrator and was an appointed member of numerous committees, boards and provincial task forces. She withdrew from the formal workforce to develop and operate a family business and raise her 4 children. For the past ten years she has raised her family alone. Her children are now young adults pursuing their own careers. She has worked as a private counselor and operates a business that was developed as employment for her clients.
Jane is passionate about economics and social justice. In the Canadian Action Party she found kindred spirits with policies and beliefs that matched her own. She is running in this election because she believes her children's futures, can only be secured, by a change in economic policy.
The people of this country understand that the quality of life has significantly declined for the lower and middle classes. They are also concerned that this downward spiral will continue unabatted. What they don't understand is that adherence to faulty economic policy has created these problems. When our politicians passed the Bank Act of 1974 they gave control of our country and lives to the banks. The massive and unsustainable debt that is responsible for our economic decline is the direct result of the Bank Act of 1974. One only has to compare the accomplishments of this country, prior to 1974 and post, to witness the effect of this legislation. Until the inception of the Canadian Action Party, there were no parties that were willing to put the people before the moneyed power brokers. There was no party that was willing to address the economic policy that has created the problems. Jane believes it is time to take action!
