TML Daily continues its month-by-month 2018 Photo Review with the struggles waged by the working people of Canada and Quebec and the Indigenous peoples in August.

In Ontario, August saw people in action against the Ford government's intensification of the anti-social offensive. People mobilized to demand that the government reinstate the basic income pilot project. The PC government's Bill 5, which slashed the number of city councillors in the middle of the municipal election and eliminated the City's jurisdiction over its own governance, met with a wall of resistance from Torontonians. The government claimed that its victory in the election gave it a "mandate" to carry out these anti-people anti-democratic acts. The incessant attacks on the people underscore the necessity for working people to work out their own agenda, so as not to be caught on the defensive and reacting to the maelstrom of the Ford government's wrecking and policies aimed at dividing Ontarians.

August is the time every year when CPC(M-L) marks important occasions in the life of the Party. August 15 marked the 79th anniversary of the birth of the CPC(M-L)'s founder and leader Hardial Bains, an occasion when the Party honours his memory and that of all the comrades who have died. August 19 marked the 29th anniversary of the Party's historic meeting in Chertsey, Quebec. Comrade Bains' elaboration of the nature of this period prepared the Canadian revolutionary forces for what was to come by analyzing precisely what was unfolding nationally and internationally at that crucial turning point. This analysis has continued to serve the Party in good stead during this period of retrogression marked by grave dangers posed by Anglo-American imperialism and the great tragedies unleashed on the world's people by U.S. imperialism -- the numerous wars, invasions, coups d'etat and medieval violence against the peoples striving for independence and social progress.

August saw the continuation of the fight to stop the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline and to demand the federal government not proceed with its purchase of the pipeline. The month ended with the news that the Federal Court of Appeal had overturned the Trudeau government's approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline in a case that combined multiple lawsuits by First Nations, environmental groups and the cities of Vancouver and Burnaby. This ruling, that the government had failed to properly consult with Indigenous peoples or assess environmental considerations, vindicated the people's just stand to oppose the project. It left the government with a pipeline which it had no authorization to purchase, and is now legally barred from expanding, although expansion remains the aim of the supranational interests dictating the direction of Canada's economy. Despite the impasse, the government continued to ensure, above all, that Kinder Morgan's private investors were enriched at the expense of Canadians. Prime Minister Trudeau tweeted that the federal government "stands by the project and will ensure it moves forward in the right way." The issue that the Indigenous peoples and others have put on the agenda through their actions is not one of finding the "right way" for the ruling circles to impose their agenda on the people under the hoax of "consent," but how the people can exercise decision-making power.

Actions in a number of cities and towns demand the Ontario government reinstate the Basic Income Pilot Project cut by the Ford government when it came to power. While the project itself fell far short of guaranteeing the right of all to a standard of living that befits a modern society, and had been put in place by a government that refused to stop the wrecking of manufacturing in Ontario, many activists had fought for years to gain this small advance in the fight to end poverty.
