The Liberal Party is out of touch with the needs of working-class and Indigenous people. More and more people are realizing this as time goes on. This is not new, either. Given the recent comments of former Prime Minister and minister the (previously named) Indian Affairs, Jean Chrétien, this out-of-touchness seems to be Liberal Party standard operating procedure.
Giving Labour more power within the capitalist system should be seen as a win for the Left, especially after decades of neo-liberal decay. If we are to progress as a society, building worker's power within a strong intersectional, labour, and Indigenous coalition would be a great starting point. Change only comes from the streets.
Many of us voted for Trudeau, giving him a majority government for four years. But since his 2015 legalization promise, Justin Trudeau has done little to help the generation that got him elected. He is losing the youth vote.
The American democratic experiment is stuck in gridlock. Donald Trump is a symptom of a much larger movement that has swept through Europe, Asia, South America, as well as Canada. We must safeguard our democracy.
Make no mistake, even in Trump loses the election, Fascism and hate will remain. Let's push it back into the shadows.
