The
 
new
 
Canada
 
that
 
many
 
Canadians
 
hoped
 
might
 
emerge
 
at
 
the
 
NDP
 
leadership
 
convention
 
requires
 
more
 
than
 
a
 
new
 
leader
 
and
 
an
 
image
 
change
 
for
 
the
 
NDP
 
caucus.
 
A
 
new
 
people’s
 
vision
 
of
 
Canada
 
is
 
required.
 
The
 
global
 
capitalist
 
depression
 
has
 
caused
 
millions
 
to
 
question
 
the
 
viability
 
of
 
capitalism
 
itself.
 
Thomas
 
Mulcair,
 
the
 
new
 
leader
 
of
 
the
 
NDP
 
won
 
the
 
NDP
 
leadership
 
without
 
enunciating
 
what
 
that
 
new
 
NDP
 
vision
 
should
 
be.
 
Failure
 
to
 
do
 
that
 
in
 
the
 
midst
 
of
 
a
 
global
 
crisis
 
was
 
a
 
mistake.
 
Mulcair
 
did
 
not
 
challenge
 
Prime
 
Minister
 
Stephen
 
Harper’s
 
vision
 
of
 
the
 
future
 
of
 
Canada
 
proclaimed
 
at
 
Davos
 
Switzerland
 
last
 
year.
 
1
 
That
 
was
 
an
 
opportunity
 
lost.
 
Propelled
 
by
 
a
 
mass
 
movement
 
among
 
Canadian
 
urban
 
and
 
rural
 
voters
 
who
 
reject
 
Prime
 
Minister
 
Harper’s
 
support
 
for
 
NATO
 
wars
 
and
 
finance
 
capitalist
 
dominance
 
over
 
the
 
state
 
and
 
Parliament,
 
the
 
NDP
 
may
 
be
 
poised
 
to
 
win
 
power
 
in
 
the
 
next
 
federal
 
election.
 
Such
 
is
 
the
 
growing
 
dissatisfaction
 
among
 
Canadian
 
workers
 
and
 
farmers
 
the
 
NDP
 
is
 
positioned
 
to
 
win
 
the
 
next
 
election
 
even
 
if
 
it
 
retains
 
its
 
current
 
reformist
 
policies.
 
If
 
that
 
happens
 
the
 
federal
 
government
 
will
 
change
 
from
 
Conservative
 
to
 
NDP
 
but
 
the
 
fundamental
 
conditions
 
of
 
life
 
of
 
the
 
unemployed,
 
working
 
class
 
and
 
farm
 
families
 
will
 
remain
 
the
 
same
 
because
 
the
 
profit
 
system
 
will
 
not
 
have
 
changed.
 
The
 
solid
 
support
 
for
 
the
 
NDP
 
of
 
a
 
majority
 
of
 
Canadians
 
voters
 
of
 
urban
 
and
 
rural
 
Canada
 
is
 
not
 
assured
 
just
 
because
 
the
 
NDP
 
opposition
 
speaks
 
up
 
in
 
the
 
House
 
of
 
Commons
 
on
 
behalf
 
of
 
“hard
 
working
 
Canadian
 
families”.
 
That
 
is
 
not
 
a
 
program
 
to
 
change
 
the
 
country.
 
That
 
is
 
an
 
elementary
 
duty.
 
That
 
role
 
is
 
necessary
 
and
 
minimal.
 
But
 
it
 
is
 
not
 
enough!

Appealing
 
for
 
labour
 
and
 
farm
 
votes
 
as
 
a
 
kinder
 
gentler
 
variant
 
of
 
the
 
Liberals
 
or
 
Conservatives
 
is
 
a
 
commitment
 
to
 
change
 
the
 
guard
 
at
 
Ottawa,
 
not
 
to
 
change
 
the
 
capitalist
 
system
 
in
 
Canada
 
or
 
even
 
its
 
worst
 
features.
 
The
 
NDP
 
leadership
 
candidates
 
evaded
 
discussing
 
the
 
capitalist
 
system
 
and
 
its
 
current
 
state
 
of
 
crisis
 
and
 
predation
 
on
 
Canada
 
and
 
its
 
people.
 
Canada
 
is
 
a
 
G7
 
NATO
 
monopoly
 
capitalist
 
state.
 
By
 
definition
 
that
 
means
 
21
st
 
Century
 
imperialism.
 
Prime
 
Minister
 
Harper
 
seeks
 
to
 
cynically
 
detach
 
his
 
government
 
from
 
the
 
crimes
 
of
 
the
 
system
 
he
 
upholds
 
and
 
promotes.
 
The
 
Harper
 
Conservatives
 
promote
 
an
 
imperialist
 
foreign
 
policy
 
of
 
support
 
for
 
US
NATO
Israeli
 
wars
 
which
 
may
 
breakout
 
in
 
the
 
Middle
 
East
 
at
 
any
 
moment.
 
The
 
Harper
 
Government
 
is
 
the
 
advocate
 
and
 
promoter
 
of
 
a
 
single
 
energy
 
resource
 
based
 
economy
 
dominated
 
by
 
big
 
private
 
domestic
 
and
 
foreign
 
investors
 
and
 
profiteers.
 
The
 
Harper
 
Government
 
promotes
 
free
 
trade
 
deals
 
with
 
despotic
 
regimes.
 
The
 
Conservative
 
Government
 
has
 
no
 
plans
 
to
 
overcome
 
unemployment,
 
poverty
 
and
 
racism
 
in
 
Canada.
 
The
 
Conservatives
 
have
 
abandoned
 
the
 
vision
 
of
 
Canada
 
as
 
an
 
integrated,
 
all
sided
 
industrialized
 
technologically
 
advanced
 
manufacturing
 
and
 
industrialized
 
21
st
 
century
 
country.
 
Prime
 
Minister
 
Harper
 
is
 
opposed
 
to
 
such
 
an
 
economic
 
plan
 
because
 
the
 
only
 
way
 
it
 
can
 
be
 
realized
 
in
 
practice
 
is
 
under
 
a
 
new
 
socialist
 
government.
 
The
 
NDP
 
long
 
ago
 
abandoned
 
socialism.
 
The
 
Harper
 
Conservatives
 
subordinate
 
the
 
great
 
potential
 
for
 
Canada
 
to
 
one
 
purpose,
 
the
 
sale
 
of
 
energy
 
and
 
other
 
natural
 
resource
 
commodities,
 
combined
 
with
 
billions
 
spent
 
on
 
the
 
militarization
 
of
 
the
 
economy
 
to
 
participate
 
in
 
US
 
sponsored
 
NATO
 
wars.
 
That
 
is
 
what
 
the
 
NDP
 
candidates
 
evaded
 
speaking
 
about.
 
Not
 
one
 
of
 
the
 
candidates
 
articulated
 
a
 
vision
 
of
 
Canada
 
as
 
a
 
peaceful,
 
independent
 
state,
 
renouncing
 
war
 
and
 
utilizing
 
its
 
own
 
resources
 
and
 
the
 
immense
 
creative
 
abilities
 
of
 
its
 
people
 
to
 
build
 
an
 
entirely
 
new
 
kind
 
of
 
Canada,
 
a
 
socialist
 
Canada.
 
That
 
could
 
not
 
realistically
 
be
 
expected.
 
However
 
something
 
short
 
of
 
that,
 
that
 
would
 
openly
 
challenge
 
the
 
dominance
 
of
 
monopoly
 
capital
 
over
 
all
 
of
 
Canadian
 
domestic
 
and
 
foreign
 
policy
 
could
 
have
 
and
 
should
 
have
 
been
 
discussed.
 
The
 
NDP
 
Caucus
 
goes
 
back
 
to
 
Parliament
 
on
 
Monday
 
March
 
26
th
 
without
 
a
 
declared
 
policy
 
on
 
the
 
vital
 
issues
 
peace
 
and
 
war,
 
and
 
independent
 
planned
 
economic
 
development.
