Note to Readers

(Updated November 4) For the information of readers, we are publishing an ongoing index linking to articles published by Renewal Update, news bulletin of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada (MLPC). It is the sole political party in Canada that publishes its own regular media in both official languages.

MLPC is the name under which the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) is registered by Elections Canada. For more information on the party’s program and to see Democratic Renewal and other publications In English and French go to MLPC can also be found on Facebook and Twitter (MLPC / PMLC). You can subscribe directly and subscriptions are free.

Renewal Update provides clear, understandable and quick analysis and information on political events from the vantage or reference point of the people rather than the rich and powerful.

If you wish to contribute photos/reports/your own voice, please email:

Renewal Update also calls on its readers, distributors and contributors to help sustain its publication by providing financial support to the MLPC. (See Contributions)

We strive to update links as published.

Result of 44th General Election
Arrogance of Calling a Pandemic Election

The arrogance of Justin Trudeau in calling a pandemic election was felt to the very end. He called it despite the legislation which provides fixed election dates, the motion in the House against holding a pandemic election, which even his party signed, and despite outbreaks and severe weather conditions across the country.

The Abstentionist Vote

Of the 27,366,297 registered electors, about 38 to 40.5 per cent — between 10.4 and 11.1 million — did not vote.
