if there is a new government, it will come to power with the extreme right wing more entrenched than ever before.... Aggressive organizations are determined to maintain policies that tend to reward the rich and penalize the rest of us.
Because it will be possible to end some of the destructive ways of 35 years of neo-liberal government, this next election is hugely important. But winning alone and coming to power with a mishmash of weak-kneed promises will not be enough.
We must not allow either the Liberals or NDP to avoid the real issues. The public needs to push the leaders hard so they will take strong positions on the main issues.
