44TH GENERAL ELECTION
The irresponsibility of calling this pandemic election two years into the Liberals’ term of office reflects an unprecedented degeneration of Canada’s so-called democratic institutions. The arrogance of imposing this election shows above all else that the decision-making power is above the people (and against the people). It reveals the need for Canadians to directly take things in hand by opposing the cartel party system and refusing to let those in power set the agenda for both the election as well as what comes next.
The Liberals say that Trudeau is in search of a “grand idea” for the election. At the press conference where he announced the election he said that “we have to continue what we have been doing” and that the pandemic is an occasion to “rebuild better.” His words are vacuous PR to see what can be made to stick. The audience is comprised of the media, the pundits and the polling companies which are mostly set up by this or that cartel party or other private interest to ask the questions and promote the results they want.

The failure in this election to follow even the most token democratic process and expectation shows that powerful private interests have seized the reins of power at every level. Whosoever does not go along with what these interests decide gets defamed, isolated and silenced. What are called politics are reduced to a mafia-style turf war which Canadians despise and reject.

Stop Paying the Rich;
Increase Funding for Social Programs!
The Marxist-Leninist Party program raises the need for a new direction for the economy. Nothing could illustrate this need more than the sharply higher quarterly profits of the big publicly chartered private banks during the pandemic. Profits for May, June and July doubled from the previous year at the Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Montreal and the Bank of Nova Scotia. The other three big banks are expected to report similar fat profit increases for their fiscal quarters ending July 31. [More]
