E-mail Print PDF

Over the past weeks tensions between Iran and the West have been moving towards a boiling point.

E-mail Print PDF

“Doctor” Drummond has issued his prescription for Ontario’s economy.  The patient is deeply sick and will not recover his vitality without a prolonged period of painful and debilitating treatment.  Drummond’s bloodletting shows that not even the capitalists have any faith in the viability of their system moving forward.  Workers and their organizations need to come to the realization that, under capitalism, good times are not ahead and this austerity is the only possible future unless we do away with the present system.
