YCL-LJC Central Committee Report on the 2015 Federal Election
Central Committee - April 5, 2015
Almost a decade of Conservative rule in Canada has brought war, austerity and crises.
After 9 years of the Harper government’s rule, the upcoming Federal election, whether in the Spring or the Fall, marks an important opportunity for the YCL-LJC in their struggle for peace, jobs, the environment and democracy, as well as the broader struggle for socialism.
This year has seen a continued employment crisis, with a potential deepening of the economic crisis approaching. Lay-offs in the retail sector, oil and gas sector, and more manufacturing job loss means that the Harper government has failed to deliver on their self-styled image of “good economic managers”. In fact, the Harper Tories were only ever interested in managing and restructuring a neo-liberal capitalist economy that was good for Canada’s capitalist class and its imperialist endeavors.
Join the 25th Che Brigade!
Since 1993, the Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade has offered hundreds of Canadians the opportunity to join an exciting and informative 2-week tour of Cuba. Volunteers are afforded a first-hand view of the gains and victories of the Cuban Revolution through both a tour of significant historical and political locales of Cuba and by working alongside ordinary Cubans. The next Brigade leaves in Spring 2017.
