Introduction to Courtenay-Alberni Candidates Election 2015

Barbara Biley

I am a health care worker and a long-time political activist. This is the fourth time I have run on Vancouver Island, the previous three times in the Nanaimo-Alberni riding before the boundaries changed. It is my experience that the main problem facing the voters in this riding and all Canadians is our marginalization. We exercise no control over the decisions taken by government in our name. Permitting us to cast a ballot for parties we don’t control, with no say in the selection of candidates or in how to resolve the important problems facing the country, means we need to renew the democratic process so that we can exercise control over the decisions that affect our lives.

The Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada calls on all eligible voters to use this election to take a stand against the neoliberal anti-social offensive. A vote for me is a clear statement for a new direction for the economy, an end to nation-wrecking, destruction of manufacturing, to privatization of health care and education. A new direction for the economy means jobs, processing and secondary manufacturing instead of exporting raw resources, secure pensions and increased investments in public services to care for children, seniors, and veterans.

Many people don’t vote because they consider that all the “major” parties are cut from the same cloth and will implement the same anti-social agenda to please international financiers and foreign monopolies, without regard to the needs and wishes of Canadians.  It is important to vote in this election to stand against the anti-social offensive, nation-wrecking and for an anti-war government.  By doing so we actually place ourselves in a stronger position to hold any new government to account. Vote for a new direction for the economy, the renewal of the political process and an anti-war government.
