Marxist-Leninist candidate Martin’s position on aquaculture

  • Apr. 21, 2011 4:00 p.m.

Of particular concern in this election and in this riding is the control of our resources and the protection of our communities and of Mother Earth.

These are three examples of the fight  that must be won:

  • Stop the export of raw logs, the clear-cutting of the forests and the shut-down of mills on the North Island. Our resources must be developed here, first and foremost for our use.
  • Stop the Raven Coal Mine. It has nothing to do with developing our resources for our use and everything to do with destroying the land and the waters for the profits of overseas “investors”. It would bring irreparable harm to the people and the land and the waters from the Comox Valley to Port Alberni.
  • Prevent the building of the Enbridge Pipeline and the shipping of oil from Kitimat. No oil tankers in our coastal waters!

The MLPC says “Public ownership of these resources where the people decide their use and development is required. This starts with workers organizing themselves so as to elect governments that permit the people to exercise control over the natural resources and social wealth for purposes of building a pro-social and self-reliant economy which enters into relations of mutual benefit with others.”
