From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Sandra L. Smith is the leader of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) (aka the Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada) and the widow of the party's founder and long-time leader, Hardial Bains.

Sandra L. Smith is the current national leader of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) since the 7th Congress of CPC(M-L) in 1998.

According to the biography of Sandra L. Smith publish on the website of CPC(M-L) - :

"The 7th Congress of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), held in Ottawa-Hull from March 28 to 31, 1998, elected Sandra Smith as its new National Leader. Sandra joined The Internationalists, the precursor organization of CPC(M-L), in 1968. A founding member of the Party, she has played a leading role in all its main work throughout the years. She is particularly known nationally and internationally for her work on the modern definition of rights and their defence. She has put forward the thesis that people have inviolable rights by virtue of being human, that modern definitions of economic, political, social, cultural and collective rights stem from this reality, and that society must harmonize the rights of the individual with those of their collectives, and those of individuals and their collectives with the general interests of society. This thesis is central to the call for the working class to constitute itself as the nation and vest sovereignty in the people. The aim is to open society’s path to progress by recognizing the claims of all its members upon it. On the basis of this work, Sandra champions the recognition of the right of Quebec to self-determination, the hereditary rights of the First Nations, and the affirmation of the collective rights of women, youth and students, the working class, national minorities, the impoverished, the disabled, and all others."
