The Central Executive Committee of the Communist Party of Canada (CPC) released a preliminary comment on the results of the federal elections of 21st October.

The commentary of the CEC of CPC, stated that although the results demonstrated a strong rejection of the policies of the Conservatives and PPC, it also shows that "Canada is not immune from the racist, fascist, misogynist, anti-immigrant, Islamophobic and anti-LGBTQ+ ideologies which have made gains in many other capitalist countries."

comunistaThroughout November, celebrations around the world will mark the centenary of the outstanding political event of the 20th century: the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917. By overthrowing the Russian capitalists, landowners and aristocrats, the workers, peasants and soldiers of the Tsarist empire opened the door to a new society in which humanity’s dreams of peace, equality and democracy began to become reality. The storming of the Winter Palace, signaled by the guns of the Aurora cruiser, began the historical epoch of the transition towards a socialist society, based on cooperation and social justice, not the exploitation and oppression inherent in the profit-driven capitalist system.

comunistaThe Communist Party of Canada condemns the latest flagrant violation of the national sovereignty of Venezuela by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Going far beyond the bounds of diplomacy, Minister Freeland attacked the July 30 voting to elect a Constituent Assembly which will have powers to resolve the political crisis in Venezuela. The Liberal government’s claim that the election was “contrary to Venezuela’s Constitution”, and therefore illegitimate, is a lie. Article 347 and 348 of the Bolivarian Constitution outline the president’s right to initiate a National Constituent Assembly.

It has been held by the Bloc and, most recently, the NDP and provincially Quebec Solidaire is a serious contender.
