In the 2019 Federal Election
All Out to Build the New!
- For a New Direction in the
Economy, Stop Paying the Rich!
- Humanize the Natural and Social Environment!
Uphold the Rights of All!
The old arrangements on
which the economy and political institutions are supposed to
function are crisis-ridden. Crises have emerged on every front.
The reason for this is the clash between the modern social
conditions and an obsolete authority that wants to control
everything for narrow private gain. The old authority and its
institutions refuse to allow a new authority to come into being
consistent with the needs of the times.
The modern social conditions have created a human
force of immense capacity and potential. Of necessity, this human
productive force must control the fruits of its production so
that the social conditions are brought under its control and
official policies conform to its needs. In opposition to this
historic necessity to build the New, the financial oligarchy has
seized control of the state and its institutions to ensure
society is not provided with a modern aim to meet the needs of
its members and a new authority under their control. The
financial oligarchy uses the crisis-ridden old institutions and
the social wealth it has seized from the working people to
obstruct anything that stands in the way of its private
The modern conditions of a
completely socialized economy on
which all people rely for their existence cry out for a new
authority consistent with those conditions. They cry out for new
arrangements that conform to this reality. A modern authority
would recognize and guarantee the economic, social and political
rights of the people, which are rights they possess by virtue of
The conditions of a socialized economy and humanity
that working people control their means of production and
distribution for the good of all, to meet and guarantee their
economic, social and political rights and well-being. In
opposition to this historic necessity stands a financial
oligarchy in control of the socialized economy and political
institutions, and obsessed with using them for its private
Instead of upholding social responsibility towards all
society, the ruling authorities throughout Canada continue to
deprive the people of their economic, political and social
rights. The neo-liberal, anti-social and anti-national offensive
has resulted in gross economic inequality and the denial of basic
needs to thousands of Canadians. The financial oligarchy has used
its authority to privatize social works so as to seize enterprise
and interest profit for its narrow interests. War and policing
have become means to enrich the few through the production of
more weapons and, with the employment of mercenaries on every
front, the ruling elite foment wars and crime instead of using the
enormous productive capacity of modern production to resolve
problems in the social and natural conditions.
Oppose Canada's Integration into U.S. Homeland
Make Canada a Zone for Peace!
The modern conditions have
given rise to a great opportunity
for the advance of international relations amongst all humanity
based on mutual benefit, development and friendship. Successive
governments in authority have deprived Canada of this opening for
modern international relations. Instead, they have surrendered
Canada's sovereignty to U.S. Homeland Security and submerged the
country into what the U.S. authorities call their "indispensable"
nation privileges and hegemony worldwide, allowing the financial
oligarchy to profit from the wars and destruction the
"indispensable" U.S. empire has unleashed.
Governments of Canada succumb to the behest of the U.S.
authority to destroy competitors in all spheres of the economy, which
causes great harm to Canadian manufacturing, social programs,
communities and the way of life of Indigenous peoples. For governments
to act as lapdogs of the U.S. and integrate the economy and foreign
affairs into U.S. imperialism's warmongering drive for global hegemony
is not an option for Canada. To end this state of affairs, Canadians
must build a powerful movement to oppose Canada's integration into U.S.
Homeland Security to Make Canada a Zone for Peace.
All Out for Democratic Renewal!
In the upcoming federal election, the Marxist-Leninist
of Canada, the name under which the Communist Party of Canada
(Marxist-Leninist) is registered with Elections Canada, will
continue to organize Canadians to take up the battle for
democratic renewal, Empower Yourself Now.
Speaking out on the
conditions of work and life and discussing
solutions to the problems people face is a new arrangement.
Speaking out in your own voice cuts through the attempts of the
cartel parties to make working people passive observers to the
electoral shenanigans and obsolete system that brings elites to
power to "represent" the people, speak in their name and rule
Working people can and should reject the path of
themselves behind this or that cartel party and their promises,
which narrow private interests and their electoral machines have
decided are the issues. Those electoral machines are themselves
powerful international private consortiums that engineer
electoral results for the narrow interests of those who employ
them. The people can embark on a new path to serve their
interests by exercising direct control over the decisions they
take and speaking in their own name on those issues that affect
their lives. This includes, importantly, what to do in the 2019
Within the fight for a modern democratic personality to
emerge, speaking in one's own name is decisive. In taking up the
battle for democratic renewal of the political process, the
working people and youth can learn what has to be done to stop
the retrogression engulfing them. By joining with others in this
endeavour, they can provide society with an aim that upholds the
well-being of all, humanizes the natural and social environment,
gives meaning to people's lives and provides them with
The most crucial new arrangement is for people to
their own political organization that enables them to work out
their own stands and speak independent of the cartel parties and
the narrow private interests of the financial oligarchy they
For us, accountability begins at home! Let us speak out
against social irresponsibility, nation-wrecking, environmental
degradation and preparations for war. Let us oppose the fast-talk
of the ruling elite that seeks to justify making the rich richer
in the name of the middle class "getting ahead" or "choosing forward"
in order to receive a greater piece of the social product the working
people themselves produce and should control.
Conceptions of rights and consultations over which the
exercise no control are phony. Say No!
to all that is phony and
counterfeit in these obsolete institutions of the old
