PLEASE MAKE IT STOP
IT IS AS EASY AS VOTING ABC
Remember when Canada had a reputation for being polite (to a fault), and the Canadian Flag on your lapel could earn you a smile and friendly wave from strangers overseas? And the Government didn't lie to you ALL the time?
Stephen Harper once told an American right-wing think tank, “You won’t recognize Canada when I get through with it.” I think he has pretty much succeeded in doing just that.
On June 3rd, 2011, Brigette Marcelle, a 21-year-old Senate page, held up a "Stop Harper" sign during the government's throne speech for 20 seconds before being quickly escorted out of the chamber and immediately fired. We should have heeded her advice.
WHAT DOES CANADA HAVE NOW?
1) Thousands of ordinary CANADIANS took to the streets all across CANADA on March 14th to PROTEST the Federal Government's plans to shove Bill C-51 through parliament by the end of March.
Four former prime ministers and numerous knowledgeable professionals have publicly decried this bill as a major step in turning Canada into a police state with a "Secret Service Spy Agency" with no oversight to protect personal freedoms. Click on the C-51 link for a CBC news video explanation.
2) Facebook has a PETITION to the UNITED NATIONS for election monitors/observers for Canada's 2015 Federal Election because of recent changes to the Election Act C-13
THIS IS NOT THE CANADA I GREW UP IN
