The Communist Party of Canada condemns the federal government’s decision to increase military spending to $58 billion annually by 2029, in the process raising NATO funding from 1.29% to 1.76% of GDP, with a promise to continue the increases until military spending reaches 2% of GDP. According to the government these funds will be used to buy and build offensive weapons to be staged in the Arctic under NORAD,  to produce and export weapons, munitions and vehicles for use in foreign wars, including some that could be used by police and military at protests and picket lines in Canada. These funds could also include nuclear submarines if Canada joins the AUKUS group which is building a nuclear powered submarine base in Australia.

NATO’s Fascist Origins

When the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was founded in 1949 it claimed to be “founded on the principles of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Two of its 12 original member states were openly fascist: Spain under Fransisco Franco and Portugal António de Oliveira Salazar. Italy and Germany had been freed from Mussolini and Hitler respectively, but their governments and ruling classes were made up of the same capitalists who had supported them.

End US interference and provocations now!

The Communist Party strongly condemns the 64 year old US economic blockade of Cuba which is a major contributor to the current economic difficulties in Cuba including a shortage of food and electricity. This is the whole purpose of the US blockade as stated in this 1960 US State Department memo:  

“every possible means should be undertaken promptly to weaken the economic life of  Cuba…to decrease monetary and real wages, to bring about hunger, desperation, and the  overthrow of government.”

Report of the Central Committee, Communist Party of Canada, February 10-11, 2024

The International Situation

Since we last met, the international situation has become more acute, with US imperialism’s dangerous drive from Cold Wars to hot wars around the world, including the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa, India, and Latin America.

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of Canada demands an immediate end to the so-called “Public Inquiry into Foreign Interference”. This inquiry is on track to become a political trial where the public will have no access to any of the evidence. The inquiry we really need is into CSIS (the Canadian Security Intelligence Service) and their collaboration with Global News and the Globe and Mail to smear political figures across the country, many of these Chinese Canadians, while creating a climate of McCarthyism that threatens democratic rights. This is the real political interference on full display in Canada today.
