The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) joins the Cuban people and peoples around the world in hailing the Cuban Revolution on the occasion of the 59th anniversary of its triumph. CPC(M-L) sends militant revolutionary greetings to the Communist Party of Cuba, President Raúl Castro Ruz and all the Cuban leadership and the entire Cuban people whose heroic defence of the Revolution inspires the entire world.
The Cuban people are heading into the 60th year of the revolution having met one challenge after another head on, showing the mettle they and their revolutionary leadership are made of. The response to Hurricane Irma, the worst storm to hit the island in over 80 years, was immediate to ensure that no one was left unprotected or to face the devastating effects of the storm by themselves. At the same time Cuba offered assistance to small Caribbean island states that were also hit hard in keeping with the internationalism that is one of the hallmarks of the Revolution.

On the occasion of the New Year 2018, the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) sends its revolutionary greetings to the working people of Canada and the world.
Along with all Canadians and the peoples everywhere, we enter the New Year conscious of the grave dangers that lie ahead. The period of retreat of revolution, ushered in when the Cold War and the bi-polar division of the world ended nearly 30 years ago, is accompanied by the institutionalization of an all-pervasive counter-revolution. This has given rise to a particular historical juncture where the old forms hitherto known to humankind have passed away and new forms consistent with the requirements of the times have yet to be brought into being.

With deepest sorrow the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) informs you that our Comrade Charles Boylan passed away peacefully on June 17 just before 11:00 pm. Charles died with his beloved partner Donna at his side. His children and close comrades and friends were with him throughout the day.
Charles spent his last days in the Cottage Hospice in East Vancouver close to his childhood home. It is fitting that the hospice overlooks the harbour where Charles carried out much of his lifelong work to humanize the social and natural environment and make Canada a zone for peace.
With our deepest social love and affection we send our condolences to Donna, Brendan, Edana, Thomas, his brother John and the entire Boylan extended family and to all the Comrades in BC and throughout the country and his many, many colleagues and friends who will miss him dearly.
Our Charles lived life to the fullest under all conditions and circumstances. To the very end he continued communicating directly with the literally hundreds of people with whom he lived, worked and shared weal and woe, cementing the unity of the people around a modern nation-building project. He dedicated his entire life to the emancipation of the working class and to ending colonial injustice and making Canada a zone for peace.
Charles has donated his body to the University of British Columbia for teaching purposes; a private cremation will follow in due course. The Party will organize a Celebration of Life in Vancouver in September. We will post an on-line book of condolence at http://cpcml.ca/charles for all those who wish to share their grief and experiences with Charles.
Charles made the Party proud. Our loss is great. He will be truly missed.

The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) calls on everyone to condemn the “new defence policy” announced by the Trudeau Liberals on June 7. The policy does not respond to Canada’s defence needs but to the demands of the U.S. imperialists through NATO and the biggest defence monopolies and other private interests to increase military spending and step up war preparations. The announcement included a 70 per cent increase to Canada’s military budget over the next 10 years, increasing the size of the armed forces, the adoption of drone and cyber-warfare, further militarization of the arctic and purchasing additional warplanes and ships.

Step Up the Work in Defence of the Rights of All, for Democratic Renewal, an Anti-War Government and Independent Canada!
– Statement of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), January 20, 2017 –
Today, Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The overriding necessity for the Canadian working people is to concentrate on their own work in defence of their rights. The antidote to the non-stop promotion of the ideological beliefs of both Trump and the official anti-Trump forces is the work to build the independent institutions and voice of the Canadian working class and its allies, and broaden the struggle in defence of rights, for democratic renewal, an anti-war government and an independent Canada.
