Elections
 
are
 
Important!
 
Class
 
struggle
 
politics
 
are
 
decisive!
 
On
 
September 
 
19
th
 
the
 
1
st
 
Session
 
of
 
the
 
41
st
 
Parliament
 
will
 
formally
 
begin.
 
The
 
opening
 
of
 
Parliament
 
precedes
 
two
 
important
 
provincial
 
elections
 
in
 
Manitoba
 
on
 
October 
 
4
th
 
and
 
Ontario
 
on
 
October 
 
6
th
.
 
These
 
three
 
events
 
will
 
momentarily
 
shift
 
the
 
struggle
 
of
 
workers
 
and
 
farmers
 
back
 
to
 
the
 
legislative
 
arena.
 
Organized
 
labour 
 
and
 
farmers
 
cannot
 
afford
 
to
 
be
 
indifferent
 
as
 
to
 
which
 
parties
 
run
 
government.
 
If
 
the
 
grip
 
of
 
corporate
 
power 
 
over 
 
government
 
can
 
be
 
weakened
 
that
 
outcome
 
should
 
be
 
supported
 
since
 
it
 
will
 
strengthen
 
the
 
cause
 
of
 
workers
 
and
 
farmers
 
and
 
their 
 
ongoing
 
struggle
 
for 
 
full
 
employment
 
and
 
stable
 
markets
 
and
 
farm
 
income.
 
That
 
is
 
why
 
it
 
is
 
important
 
to
 
agree
 
on
 
what
 
is
 
fundamental
 
to
 
the
 
corporate
 
agenda
 
and
 
how
 
to
 
defeat
 
it.
 
To
 
defeat
 
corporate
 
power 
 
labour 
farmer 
 
unity
 
must
 
be
 
organized
 
around
 
its’
 
own
 
political
 
and
 
economic
 
program
 
and
 
fought
 
for 
 
by
 
united
 
independent
 
political
 
action.
 
United
 
mass
 
political
 
action
 
is
 
the
 
path
 
to
 
real
 
political
 
power 
 
for 
 
workers
 
who
 
must
 
sell
 
their 
 
labour 
 
power 
 
to
 
live
 
and
 
farmers
 
who
 
work
 
the
 
land
 
and
 
must
 
have
 
stable
 
markets
 
and
 
adequate
 
returns
 
to
 
continue
 
farming.
 
Three
 
Fundamentals
 
of
 
Prime
 
Minister
 
Harper’s
 
Right

Conservative
 
Parliamentary
 
Agenda
 
and
 
the
 
Role
 
of
 
the
 
NDP,
 
Liberal,
 
Bloc
 
and
 
Green
 
Opposition
 
The
 
Prime
 
Minister 
 
Harper 
Finance
 
Minister 
 
Flaherty
 
legislative
 
agenda
 
is
 
based
 
on
 
three
 
corporate
 
profit
 
fundamentals:
 
protection
 
of
 
Canadian
 
bank
 
profits
1
,
2
,

increased
 
military
 
spending
 
4
,

,

and
 
placing
 
reliance
 
on
 
resources,
 
mainly
 
energy
 
exports
 
to
 
keep
 
the
 
economy
 
afloat.

Reliance
 
on
 
these
 
profit
 
fundamentals
 
are
 
the
 
root

deficits,

based
 
taxation,
 
cut
 
backs
 
and
 
privatization,
 
NAFTA
 
market
 
dependency,
 
costly
 
NATO
 
wars
 
and
 
the
 
loss
 
of
 
energy
 
and
 
food
 
self
 
sufficiency
 
for 
 
Canadians.
 
Sufficiency
 
and
 
Security
 
are
 
Not
 
the
 
Same
 
Thing
 
The
 
right
 
wing
 
conservative
 
Stephen
 
Harper 
 
government
 
promotes
 
NAFTA
 
market
 
dependency
 
to
 
protect
 
the
 
dominance
 
of
 
monopoly
 
profiteering
 
in
 
energy
 
and
 
food
 
production
 
all
 
over 
 
North
 
America.
 
Government
 
propagandists
 
deliberately
 
obscure
 
the
 
difference
 
between
 
energy
 
and
 
food
 
security
 
and
 
energy
 
and
 
food
 
self
sufficiency.
 
These
 
terms
 
have
 
a
 
class
 
essence
 
and
 
are
 
not
 
the
 
same.
 
The
 
Canadian
 
Council
 
of
 
Chief
 
Executives
 
(CCCE)
 
advocates
 
energy
 
security
 
not
 
energy
 
self
 
sufficiency.
 
John
 
Manley
 
CEO
 
of
 
the
 
CCCE
 
a
 
couple
 
of
 
months
 
ago
 
at
 
a
 
government
 
sponsored
 
energy
 
conference
 
laid
 
out
 
his
 
vision
 
of
 
Canadian
 
energy
 
development
 
and
 
it
 
was
 
all
 
about
 
North
 
American
 
energy
 
security,
 
not
 
Canadian
 
energy
 
self
 
sufficiency.
8
 
The
 
same
 
thing
 
applies
 
to
 
the
 
terms
 
food
 
self
sufficiency
 
and
 
food
 
security.
 
Farmers
 
have
 
two
 
markets
 
for 
 
their 
 
production,
 
global
 
and
 
domestic.
 
Without
 
the
 
Canadian
 
Wheat
 
Board,
 
private
 
marketers
 
will
 
drive
 
down
 
the
 
price
 
paid
 
to
 
farmers
 
and
 
drive
 
up
 
the
 
profits
 
for 
 
corporate
 
marketers
 
in
 
the
 
global
 
market
 
place.
 
At
 
the
 
same
 
time,
 
in
 
the
 
domestic
 
market,
 
corporate
 
marketers
 
are
 
opposed
 
to
 
independent
 
farmers
 
producing
 
for 
 
local
 
markets
 
because
 
that
 
competes
 
with
 
the
 
dominance
 
of
 
big
 
grocery
 
chains
 
integrated
 
with
 
corporate
 
suppliers.
 
When
 
corporate
 
shills
 
speak
 
of
 
the
 
free
 
market
 
what
 
they
 
mean
 
is
 
freedom
 
of
 
corporate
 
dominance
 
in
 
the
 
capitalist
 
market.
 
There
 
is
 
no
 
solution
 
to
 
farmers
 
being
 
slaves
 
to
 
the
 
market
 
under 
 
capitalism.
 
That
 
does
 
not
 
and
 
will
 
not
 
stop
 
them
 
from
 
fighting
 
for 
 
a
 
better 
 
deal
 
in
 
a
 
bad
 
system.
 
Energy
 
self
 
sufficiency
 
and
 
food
 
self
 
sufficiency
 
are
 
focal
 
points
 
of
 
mass
 
struggles
 
because
 
they
 
affect
 
the
 
standards
 
of
 
living
 
of
 
millions.
 
Corporate
 
media
 
hacks
 
tell
 
us
 
that
 
energy
 
and
 
food
 
security
 
of
 
supply
 
is
 
all
 
that
 
matters,
 
not
 
affordable
 
energy
 
and
 
food.
 
That
 
means
 
in
 
practice
 
if
 
workers
 
have
 
the
 
money,
 
they
 
can
 
buy
 
food
 
and
 
pay
 
for 
 
energy
 
costs.
 
If
 
they
 
don’t
 
have
 
the
 
money
 
they
 
can
 
go
 
to
 
the
 
food
 
bank
 
and
 
walk.
 
Security
 
of
 
supply
 
is
 
bafflegab
 
for 
 
corporate
 
appropriation
 
and
 
ownership
 
of
 
commodities
 
produced
 
by
 
workers
 
and
 
farmers
 
and
 
dominance
 
over 
 
the
 
sale
 
of
 
those
 
products
 
in
 
the
 
market
 
place.
 
Self
 
sufficiency
 
means
 
the
 
opposite,
 
ownership
 
and
 
control
 
by
 
the
 
people
