The Communist Party of Canada has sharply condemned the Trudeau government’s decision to expel four Russian diplomats from Canada, in lock step with the Conservative government of Theresa May in UK, who demanded ‘solidarity’ actions from European and NATO countries, including the US, declaring she had led “the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers in history”.
Le Parti communiste du Canada a sévèrement condamné la décision du gouvernement Trudeau d’expulser quatre diplomates russes du Canada, à l’instar du gouvernement conservateur Britannique de Theresa May, qui a exigé des actions en solidarité de la part des pays européens et de l’OTAN, incluant les États-Unis, et qui se déclare en tête de «la plus grande expulsion collective des officiers de renseignement russes dans l’histoire».
The March 19 announcement that Canada will send “peacekeepers” to the west African country of Mali is an ominous signal that under Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, Canada is increasing its role in dirty wars intended to make the world safe for imperialist exploitation.
The deepening crisis in Mali has its origins in a variety of factors, from the history of intervention by French imperialism, to the overthrow of Libya’s Col. Gaddafi, and the scramble for hydrocarbons and uranium wealth by western-based corporate interests.

The International Situation
We are meeting just past the one-year mark since the Trump administration’s arrival in office, and what a year it has been. According to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists we are now closer to “the end of humanity” than at any time since 1953 and the US test of its first thermonuclear device. The Doomsday Clock, the countdown to “The End of It All” moved 30 seconds closer to midnight January 25th. “As of today it is 2 minutes to midnight”, the scientists state.
Imagine a country where the rights of Indigenous Peoples were truly recognized and upheld and where we have already taken major steps toward decolonization.
Imagine a world with well-resourced, meaningful, effective educational work and legal steps taken to combat racism, sexism, and discrimination on basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.
