No ProRogue Rally: January 23rd, 2010 @ Waterloo, Ontario
There was a good turn out at the Waterloo NoProrogue Rally. Many Canadians want to know what has happened to our voice.
Love these signs!
Pictured below are “the ghosts at the feast”. These few seats stayed empty… they were seats that were saved in vain for the area’s invited but absent Conservative MPs. It’s always a bad sign when your elected representatives won’t meet with constituents.
I grew up in a world where Canada preferred to house serial killers in our prison system, rather than allow their extradition to a place where they would face the death penalty for their crimes.
Clearly Prime Minister Stephen Harper was wrong when he made the cavalier assumption that Canadians don’t care about what goes on in other parts of the world.
Or that it wouldn’t bother Canadians to learn that our government was complicit in handing over people who will face torture.
Members of the Waterloo Region chapter of the non partisan electoral reform advocacy group Fair Vote Canada attended the NoProrogue Rally, disseminating literature and information about electoral reform.
It seems clear that Canadians prefer Perogies to Premature Prorogation.
All the signs were great, and a lot of creativity was on display that day. Still, I think that my absolute favorite was the “deMOCKracy” sign. Simple but to the point.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s premature prorogation clearly mocks democracy.
Write to your Member of Parliament and tell them what you think about premature prorogation or anything else! You can find your MP with this lovely link – it will also help you find out who your MP is if you don’t know. It’s time that Canadians started letting them know what we think about how they represent us.
Find your Member of Parliament
Write to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and tell him too!
