A new direction for the economy that upholds public right, not monopoly right. Sovereign decision making over the economy has to be restored and manufacturing made a priority using natural resources to meet the people’s needs, not for sell-out. An end to the sell-off and privatization of public assets.
An end to paying the rich and immediately to increase funding for social programs to ensure the rights of the people to childcare and recreation, education, health care, seniors’ care and pensions are guaranteed.
Renewal of the political process so that Canadians can directly decide the matters that concern them and affect their lives. Fund the electoral process not the parties, uphold the right to an informed vote and enable electors to exercise their right to select and elect their representatives and participate in governance.
A modern constitution that eliminates all vestiges of privilege, affirms citizenship rights on an objective, non-racist basis, and provides the rights of residents and refugees with a guarantee. Freedom of conscience must not be violated under any circumstances.
Providing security by defending the rights of all. The MLPC joins with Canadians in demanding the repeal of Bill C-51 and similar legislation and calls for providing rights with a guarantee. When people can exercise control over their lives their security will be defended.
Ending colonial injustice and establishing nation-to-nation relations with the indigenous peoples, and upholding Quebec’s right to self-determination.
Establishing an anti-war government so that Canada is a factor for peace, not predatory war. An anti-war government would withdraw Canada from NATO, NORAD and aggressive military bodies and arrangements, and end interference in the affairs of sovereign countries. An anti-war government would work to end the displacement of people as a result of wars of aggression and occupation and to provide humanitarian aid to refugees and victims of natural disasters.
International trade based on mutual benefit and development, and a withdrawal from all neo-liberal free trade deals that have put Canada’s human and natural resources at the disposal of the monopolies.
Solving the problems of environmental destruction and climate change by empowering human beings, especially the working people, to control the decisions about what to produce and how to produce it.
