43rd General Election Gets Underway
Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada to Field 50 Candidates in 2019 Federal Election
— Press Release —
September 11, 2019 10:00 am – The Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada (MLPC), the name under which the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) is registered with Elections Canada, is fielding 50 candidates in the 2019 Federal Election. The 25 women and 25 men, working people from various sectors of the economy, will represent the MLPC in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.
During the elections, the MLPC will continue its work of organizing Canadians for democratic renewal, a new direction for the economy and to establish an anti-war government. Under the banner of “Empower Yourself Now!” the MLPC candidates will speak in their own name about conditions of work and life, and call on the electorate to do the same. They will discuss solutions with Canadians to the problems people face and elaborate the MLPC platform to Humanize the Natural and Social Environment.
National Leader Anna Di Carlo says, “The approach of the MLPC and its candidates is to create new political arrangements to replace those of the crisis-ridden party-dominated system. Instead of being passive observers to a show of electoral shenanigans, working people can create their own political organizations, enabling them to work out their own stands and speak in their own name. The approach is a practical rejection of an obsolete process that brings elites to power to ‘represent’ the people, speak in their name and rule over them.”
