Thomas Mulcair – Collectivist Wildcatter

24 Sep

Angry Tom Mulcair, career socialist lawyer politician from Montreal knows what it takes to make Alberta’s oil industry successful… central planning…

The Canadian economy needs a better balance among manufacturing, the service sector and primary industries like oilsands mining and policies that encourage value-added jobs in all provinces, said Mulcair, noting that Ontario has lost 500,000 manufacturing jobs in recent years.

“What we are talking about is re-establishing the balanced economy that Canada had painstakingly built up since the Second World War,” said Mulcair. “We don’t think one has to be sacrificed for the other.”

Forget about market forces, supply and demand, and private risk – the NDP has a “plan to balance” the economy…

The New Democratic Party believes that social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be assured by the application of democratic socialist principles to government and the administration of public affairs.
The principles of democratic socialism can be defined briefly as follows: a) the production and distribution of goods and services shall be directed to meeting the social and individual needs of people and not for profit, b) the modification and control of the operations of monopolistic productive and distributive organizations through economic and social planning, towards these ends, and c) where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.
