Colin Mayes YOU could be our hero!

On Wednesday, June 13th,  Canadians from all walks of life were protesting the Federal Omnibus Budget Bill C-38 all across Canada.  Local rally at MP Colin Mayes office (old railway station in Vernon ) was a big success That was a big Wednesday, June 13th, at 5:30PM  We asked Colin Mayes to be our hero!

Green Party people were there!
Federal Liberals were there!
The NDP were there too.

We all worked together for a hero in the Okanagan Shuswap riding.

Canadians from across the political spectrum are uniting against the Omnibus Budget Bill. According to the Ottawa Citizen, Prime Minister Harper is becoming “increasingly isolated” as more and more Conservatives speak out against his anti-democratic attempt to remake our society

The outrageous nature of this bill is provoking incredible statements from conservative politicians. Former Cabinet Minister Tom Siddon said: “We don’t understand why you have to roll this all into one bill and ramrod it through Parliament….This is unbecoming of the Conservative party to which I belonged.”

The Budget Bill is becoming a symbol of the struggle to defend Canadian democracy. Many Conservative MPs have deep concerns about the bill. Now they face a real choice: will they allow this reckless bill to pass, or will they stand up to Harper and defend our democracy?

Voting on the bill starts in Parliament this week. We need your help to create a massive public outcry right now, and flood Conservative MP offices with thousands of messages calling on them to defend our democracy and stop the Budget Bill:


Just 13 Conservative MPs can stop this Budget Bill, split it apart and start over, by simply telling Prime Minister Harper that they would deny him the majority of votes he needs to pass it.

These MPs are isolated in a government that keeps them in the dark and discourages them from representing our voices. We need a strong show of support for principled, honest action now to give our MPs the courage they need.

Click here:  http://www.leadnow.ca/13heroes to send an urgent message direct to the Conservative MP constituency offices in your province, calling on them to be one of the 13 heroes we need to stop this bill:

From flooding Conservative MPs with pro-democracy messages, to amplifying opposition to this bill in the media, to rallying at MP offices on Wednesday night, we have a real opportunity to bring Canadians together, from across the political spectrum, to stand up to Harper and his Ministers.

On Wednesday evening as our MPs gather in Ottawa for a decisive showdown in Parliament, we’ll rally at MP Colin Mayes office I hope you can join me.
