44th General Election
Montrealers Enthusiastically Sign Nomination Papers of Candidates for Democratic Renewal
Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada (MLPC) candidates in the Montreal area have been meeting with people to gather the one hundred signatures they require to be candidates in the September 20 Federal Election. As in previous elections, but even more so this time around, what the work to nominate MLPC candidates is revealing is the people’s desire to learn more about the Party’s program embodied in the call For a Modern Canada that Defends the Rights of All. It takes the form of people readily signing the nomination form, making comments such as “We need other voices than the ones we keep hearing,” “I know your Party and I have signed for it before,” “I have voted for your Party in past elections, rather than wasting my vote,” “I used to vote for Trudeau but I cannot agree with his decision to indebt generations of Canadians to private banks,” “This election is a waste: the record expense of $610 million it will incur could almost pay the dental care costs of all Canadians for an entire year,” and so on.
Electors have also shared with MLPC candidates their concerns over the great injustices that exist within Canadian society, such as the crimes that continue to be committed against Indigenous peoples, the abandonment of the most vulnerable, the hierarchy of rights that exist in Canada.
They also continuously express anger over the fact that despite the fact that Canada has entered into the fourth wave of the pandemic, Justin Trudeau has called a federal election to secure a majority government for his party so that it can rule unfettered.
