Campaign Press Release
– Laura Chesnik, Worker Politician, Windsor Tecumseh –
Laura Chesnik, a teacher, worker politician and host of the national podcast Education is a Right, is an officially registered candidate in the June 2 provincial election in the riding of Windsor-Tecumseh.
“This election is a time for all of us to speak out about what the COVID-19 recovery should look like,” Laura says. “Day care, seniors’ care, health care, education, housing – the economy as a whole – the environment and affirming the rights of all are serious matters of concern in this election,” Laura says. “Together, let’s identify and champion the interests of the working class and people and a democracy where it is the people who decide all matters that concern them. Even though matters related to war and peace are said to be federal, not provincial affairs, let us oppose the integration of Ontario’s economy into the U.S. war economy and make sure Canada is a zone for peace!”
Laura is encouraging everyone to get involved in her campaign to contribute to empowering themselves in the election itself. She does not think it helps the workers to participate in factional fighting that undermine the unity the people require to solve the problems they face.
“From our industries in Windsor to the Ring of Fire in northern Ontario and everything in between, let us speak out in defence of the rights of workers, women, youth and students, and people from all walks of life as well as uphold the hereditary rights of the Indigenous Peoples. We are the human factor that humanizes the natural and social environment! This is a good time to participate in the election in a manner which empowers ourselves!”
