Free Palestine

The Communist Party of Canada expresses deep sorrow and sympathy to the Indigenous survivors of  500 years of colonial and capitalist genocide, including more than a century of the residential school system which forcibly removed 150,000 children from their families, and is responsible for the death of thousands.

We support the AFN’s demand that the federal government  immediately act to uncover other mass graves of children in residential schools across Canada and to identify and repatriate the remains to their families and communities.

We demand that the federal government and Parliament act now to implement all of the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, of which only 10 of 94 have been implemented to date, and another 24 are ‘in progress’, 40 are under discussion, and 20 haven’t been touched.  We further demand that the recommendations of the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls must also be enacted now.

Dock Workers

The Communist Party of Canada strongly denounces bill C-29 adopted by the House of Commons and the Senate on Friday April 30. It forces 1151 dock workers back to work at the Port of Montreal who were on strike since April 26.

The Port of Montreal dock workers have been without a collective agreement since 2018. The main point of contention in the negotiations has to do with work-life balance and the right to disconnect from work. In fact, they are currently asked to call the employer between 6 p.m. and midnight to find out their assignment for the next day. The employer’s bad faith forced them to strike for ten days last August, which resulted in a seven-month truce at the end of which the workers rejected the employers’ offer by 99.7%.

Reverse privatization for free, quality, democratic public post-secondary education across Canada

Protect French and Indigenous language and education rights

The Communist Party of Canada stands in solidarity with the over 150 laid-off faculty and staff and the 800 students who have had their academic program cut at Laurentian University. We demand immediate action by the Ontario and federal governments to stop the insolvency proceedings and provide the stable funding needed for the university’s future operations with a full staff and continuing programs.

Federal Budget Delivers A Profitable Recovery for Corporations and the Wealthy
Funds for NATO, NORAD, Armaments and War
Paid for by the Working Class, the Unemployed, Women and Youth

Far from transformative, Monday’s federal budget was yet another long list of big gifts to Big Business in Canada, along with vast sums for NATO, NORAD, fighter jets and warships, ensuring that the working class will pay for a profitable recovery for corporations and the wealthy, and Parliament’s new foreign policy of war and regime change.

Nationalize Air Canada Now

Today’s announcement that the Canadian government intends to provide the owners of Air Canada with a $5.9 billion bail-out is the wrong decision for Canadians.  It’s wrong for laid-off airline workers, and it’s wrong for the public who will pay a steep price for earlier Liberal and Tory decisions to privatize Air Canada and deregulate the airline industry in Canada.

Public ownership and international solidarity can defeat COVID-19

The Communist Party of Canada demands that access to vaccines against COVID-19 be regarded as a human right and not a commodity. Vaccines must be made public, mass produced around the world and distributed for free.

Le Parti communiste du Canada condamne la motion conservatrice adoptée par le Parlement le 22 fevrier dernier, déclarant le peuple Ouïghour de Chine comme victime de génocide. Cette accusation n’a aucune base réelle et répond d’une pure fabulation de l’administration Trump – maintenant de l’administration Biden également. Elle est destinée à justifier une Guerre froide menée par les États-Unis afin de miner l’influence économique et politique de la Chine à travers le monde.

The Communist Party of Canada condemns the Tory motion passed by Parliament on Febuary 22nd, declaring the Uyghur people of China as the victims of genocide. This charge has no basis in fact, and is a creation of the Trump administration – and now the Biden administration – in the US Cold War campaign to undermine China’s growing economic and political influence globally.

La campagne impérialiste pour fomenter une nouvelle “guerre froide” contre la République populaire de Chine (RPC), qui a véritablement commencé avec le “pivot vers l’Asie” du président américain Obama en 2011 et qui s’est fortement accélérée sous l’administration Trump ces dernières années, continue de se déployer. Le gouvernement Trudeau, avec le soutien et l’encouragement de tous les autres partis au Parlement, joue un rôle de plus en plus actif dans cette offensive dangereuse et hautement déstabilisatrice contre la Chine. Celles et ceux qui défendent la paix, le désarmement, le respect mutuel et la coopération dans les relations internationales doivent maintenant s’opposer à ces événements inquiétants.
