Supporters of the Marxist journals, Fightback and La Riposte, recently gathered in Toronto for the 13th national conference of the Marxists across the Canadian state. The conference was a historic one for a number of reasons. Over 60 people registered to attend the conference, making it the best attended conference in the history of the Canadian Marxists. More importantly, this was the first national conference that was fully bilingual, with all sessions and discussions translated consecutively into English and French. Finally, the conference was held in conjunction with the centennial celebrations of the birth of British Marxist, Ted Grant. Ted’s ideas featured quite prominently throughout the weekend, helping to arm a new generation of militants in the struggle against capitalism.
