Obviously - "the Left" encompasses anybody (or any movement) that struggles
to move beyond capitalism. This is the simple part of the equation. That
which divides "the Left" is many and varied. It can go back to the question
of the Russian 1917 October revolution, or even before to
Marxism-vs-Anarchism etc... If you stick around this list for a couple of
weeks you'll see all the different tendencies and nuances.

A Left statement from Canada, one that I subscribe to, can be found here:

What do you understand by the term "the Left"?
