National Day of Action – Saturday May 14

Note:The information has been updated: any red strikethough text is deleted; Green underlined text is Additional information. This Day of Action is a near spontaneous event put together over the last few days by students across Canada.

Canadian Flag through the Trees

As might be expected, the non partisan FairVote Canada is not terribly pleased with the outcome of our recent Federal Election:

This blatantly distorted election outcome has generated a spontaneous reaction in the electorate. Saturday, May 14 has been designated a national Day of Action for Electoral Reform, and protest rallies are being planned in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Charlottetown and Kelowna, all at 2:00 pm local time.”

“Fair Vote Canada (FVC) is participating in these events, and will supply speakers in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver.”

Fairvote Canada will be participating in the NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR ELECTORAL REFORM / MANIFESTATION PAN-CANADIENNE POUR LA RÉFORME ÉLECTORALE
