What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Canada's socialist New Democrats meeting in National Convention as they prepare to take national power.

All eyes should be focused on Canada...

The New Democratic Party's Socialist Caucus is doing a good job defending the "ownership question" remains in the Party's Mission Statement and Constitution. Nationalization under public ownership of select mines, mills and factories along with entire industries is going to have to be considered by the working class in Canada just like in any other country if capturing political power is going to mean anything of value to working people. Bay Street like its Wall Street partner is going to have to be challenged for not only political power, but economic power as well.  If Tom Mulcair didn't want to defend the mission of the socialist New Democratic Party calling for public ownership of mines, mills, factories and industries as called for he should not have run for the leadership position--- it is as simple as that. One does not run to become a Party's leader as the way to deceitfully change it and turn it into something other than what it stands for. An honest politician would simply have started a new political party shaped in the way and to the ideals wanted. Politicians are doing this all too frequently and it is good to see the New Democratic Party's Socialist Caucus militantly defending the integrity and what the New Democratic Party has stood for over many decades since its beginnings.
