Leaflet: A Better Ontario is Possible!, Socialist Party of Ontario


The Socialist Party of Ontario was formed on May 28, 2011 in Toronto and ran candidates in two provincial elections.


As I wrote five years later in the piece On the 5th anniversary of the founding of the Socialist Party of Ontario the need for a new party has never been greater :


"Based around putting the supposed egalitarianism of socialism into action, it was created as a leaderless party whose intent was to allow for the flowering of a real collective and democratic approach to party policy and governance.
It also adopted an unashamedly and avowedly democratic socialist platform."

This was the SPO's general leaflet printed in 2012 that outlined many of the party's most important policies as well as its general philosophy.


Its central slogans were "A Better Ontario is Possible" and "A New Ontario: Community, Diversity, Solidarity, Justice" under the banner "Socialism, Democracy, Feminism, Equality".


If you are interested in reading more about the party its platform and constitution can still be found online.
