Elections in Canada: History is in the hands of the Communist Party

Akash Chatterjee India//12:23am, Sep 7th '21

The 44th general election of Canada is merely two weeks away now. On 20th of September, 2021 the people of Canada will vote for the members for the house of commons in the Canadian Parliament. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will have a litmus test in this upcoming election. However, our point of concern is not president Trudeau. Instead we will be focusing on the candidates of the Communist Party of Canada ( CPC) as they have already taken the upper hand in the country in terms of providing the best candidates so far.

Now in this blog, we will be writing about some of their candidates. The CPC may not have a single seat in the house of commons, but this time the story seems different. The party is in full swing to get some interesting results. With a real diverse list of candidates the party may break all time records and can hit the numbers in the house of commons. The second oldest party in political history in Canada has all the chances to get the result they want.

So here are the names and introduction of the candidates in some of the electoral seats .

Toronto Danforth: The most experienced candidate in the party awaits your response. Elizabeth Rowley or popularly known as Liz Rowley is the leader of the CPC. She joined CPC in 1967. Five years after her joining, in 1992 she fought in the 1972 federal election. She was the youngest candidate at that time.

Saskatoon University: Famous climate activist and the co-founder of the Louis Riel Communist Party of Canada club, Jeremy Fisher, is fighting from here.
