The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist)’s magnificient Party Memorial in Ottawa’s Beechwood Cemetery is dedicated to the memory of Comrade Hardial Bains, Founder and Leader of CPC(M-L) and to other Party comrades who have passed away. The Party Memorial also pays deepest tribute to the working class of Canada and the fighting peoples of the entire world.
The Party Memorial represents the red flag of modern communism flying over Canada. The red flag bears the hammer and sickle and star of CPC(M-L). On one side we read the inscription Workers of All Countries Unite! and on the other the Party’s motto, The Issue is Not to Wave the Red Flag But to Show Our Colours Through Our Deeds. On the base, we read: Hardial Bains, August 15, 1939-August 24, 1997. Our Founder, Our Leader, Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist). The flowers of modern communism are carved on the bottom right hand corner of the base with the lines Vous êtes le rouge de notre drapeau — Lal Salaam (You are the red of our flag — Red Salute).
