The Communist Party of Manitoba -- A clear anti-capitalist alternative to the status quo
While we are always told in circumstances like this that there is no choice but to vote for the NDP as the alternative is worse, it is hard to see any reason to be terribly enthusiastic about Selinger and crew.
After all, among many other examples, child poverty has grown during the NDP's time in power and the minimum wage there is lower than it is in Ontario which has a Liberal government.
To say that the experience of seeing such a long tenure in government that accomplished so little of a transformative nature puts the lie to the notion that if only we get the NDP into office the rest will follow, would be an understatement!
But, at least in some ridings, there is an alternative.
Voting Communist sends a clear message rejecting the politics of neo-liberalism and the status quo, and there are precious few ways to do that anymore.
