Linda McQuaig: Canada’s Venezuela sanctions inflict hardship, endorse right wing elite

By: Linda McQuaig For Metro Published on Wed Mar 14 2018 What’s going on in Venezuela is a bitter class war, writes Linda McQuaig.

During those tense 48 hours, one of the very first things they did was to abolish the Constitution of 1999: the one they now purport to defend. During 18 years, the opposition has denigrated the Constitution. So intense has been this revolt against it that...
